I run my life, Or is it running me? Run from my past, I run too fast or too slow it seems...

Well, life is interesting.  School is going well, the drama in my life is G-O-N-E. yay.  Went to the Duke and VT games of the ACC Tournament today! THis is probs the one main reason I love living in Gboro/10 minutes from the coliseum.  Duke won, and we did not. I dont want to go into the game too much...I cant talk anymore though...being there, I felt like a young girl of 18 at my first bball game in Cassell Coliseum my freshman year. SO MUCH FUN, except the losing part.  I didnt expect so many VT fans there today but it was delightful and made my little Hokie heart so so happy! I had my VT face tattoo on and the hokiebird on my hand! ANd my ginormous Cassell Guard shirt from 2004 on too.  Definitely a once in a lifetime experience....until the ACC Tournament comes back to Gboro ;)

my ticket!!!!! 

Me before going inside!!! <3 VT

ANYWAYS. the inspiration of the title of this post= running.  I have been consistently running since last September.  Primarily, I began running to lose weight and get in shape/healthy but now it is just so much fun! I run about 4 miles 4-5x a week.  I have a pretty consistent 10 minute mile and I am soo happy with that! I know I've gained some weight/few lbs since December but I'm ok with that--I got to a point in December where I was just too unhealthy about it and eating balance bars and wine and thats it.  Not smart.  Now I am much better about eating enough and I only work out once a day.  I am worried though that increasing my 3x a week to 4x-5x a week is getting to me b/c the past few weeks Ive had some dizzy/lightheadedness spells so I think I am going to my DR during spring break j/ to make sure I am ok and getting all the good stuff that I need.  
I seriously love running though.  No matter how crappy/tired I feel in the mornings, whenever I run, I just get such a high that nothing can bring me down! I love that feeling.  I like to run in the mornings b/c of one thing--Saved By the Bell on TBS from 7am-9am. haha its like re-living my childhood every morning and laughing uncontrollably too.  Since my dvd player from undergrad finally ended it's own life, I have no choice but to watch some random tv show when I run so why not run when something entertaining is on?!?  there is nothing better than some SBTB!! Well, since Ive increased my time from 30 mins to 40ish mins, it gets hard to make sure something I have to focus on when I run but its not usually that big of an issue...

Since I started running so much, I decided that I would run the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon that DisneyWorld has every March.  It runs from Epcot Center to Magic Kingdom (through cinderella's castle!!!) and back to Epcot.  One of my sorority sisters (Maggie!!) did it 2 wkends ago and she did amazing! My goal is to get in shape and have the stamina to run that race in March 2011.  In order to take the baby steps I need to get to that point, I signed up for the Women's Law Association's Annual 5k for Womens Health.  The run is tomorrow (03/13/10) at 8am in the morning.  I am so so so excited.  Right now, I am all set and registered to run but since I am an officer for WLA, I told the chairs that I will help them and volunteer and not run if they needed help, so right now I dont know if I will be running or what tomorrow morning.  It is fine with me because they help me out with my events so of course I am going to help them out if they need it!  Either way, I can't wait to be apart of a great event and all proceeds are going to the National MS Society.  It will be a great time and I cant wait to get through with my first 5k *hopefully.* 
 I am also planning on signing up for the Susan G. Komen 5K Race for the Cure in Winston-Salem in May.  It is the Saturday before my finals but it will definitely be a nice break and energizing activity before the ridic-ness of finals! 
I love love love running, I just wish I had a running buddy down here to run races with me.  My sister says she cant run, she only power walks so that is out.  The same with my mom b/c she has bad knees.  So idk who is left.  The people at school already have their running buddies, as far as I know.  Sooo IDK. 

ANYWAYS.  I am tired.  I think I will drink some water, finish some hmwk, and then get to bed!

Soo here is my running sched if anyone is interested :) :

Wednesdays: I let myself sleep in to about 730 and start around 8am since I dont have class till late
Thursdays: start when I get back from class around 1030am
