Half Marathon #2= DUNZO! (and other concerns abt life)

well. last saturday I finished my second half marathon! exciting to finish and it was abt 15 mins faster than my half I did in February. And it isnt too shabby given that I didnt start srsly running/training again until October (abt 5ish wks before the race).   I had hoped to set a PR by 30 mins but miles 7-9 were all literally uphill and I ran half/pwr walked half of that mtn and I was so wiped up by the time I got to the 10 mile marker I knew I wasnt going to make it by my goal.  I was super disappointed when I finished but my mom reminded me that finishing was an accomplishment in iteself and everything I've gone through these past few months that I have nothing to be ashamed about. She also reminded me that so many people cant even run 13.1 miles so that was a nice thought hahah
I havent been super sore the past few days after the race but I usually run up and down my stairs at my house and that has been difficult this wk bc my ankles feel like they are going to break in half! I guess that is because I'm so much heavier than I was in February (probs 15ish lbs more) but I'm only abt 10 away frm my goal weight. I was super sick from last Dec 10-March 11 and so I lost abt 25ish lbs then frm my healthy weight so im j trying to get to a healthly placce.  Im trying not to obsess abt it but its kinda hard. W my studying starting up in a few wks, I j need to make sure that I stay on track this winter w studying and being healthy.

Its pretty depressing that after all that I put into studying and preparing for the bar exam this past summer for the July exam, I have to do it again. for another 3 months. and then take that mf-ing exam again in February (28-29 to be exact). Sometimes, I feel like I will pass it so bad this tiem around and I only have to do 4pts better than I did last July but then I have thoughts like 'Can I really do all of this, again???" I just dont know what to do other than stay focused on my overall goal-- becoming an attorney at law because lets be srs, I will not take the bar exam a third time. If I dont pass in February, then I guess I will j have to find a new profession. And i really dont want to do that because it has been my dream since I was 14 to be a lawyer, ever since I debated the constitutionality of the death penalty in my 8th grade forum.

ok so next I blabbed on abt the book im reading-- Mindy Kailing's new book " Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me (And other Concerns)". it is pretty much amazingness. she and i basically had the same childhoods other than shes 7ish yrs older than me. I too was a chubbster as a small child that embarrassed my older brother haha pretty much it is an AMAZING book that eveyrone should be reading right now.

um what else did I mention?? IDK IDK IDK.

OH, I am pretty much in love with Virginia Tech. more than usual. we j beat unc tongith and my sister got tickets for her my dad and i to go to the VT uva game in charlottesville. cantwait.

ok thats all im going to sleep for reals. finishing up soemthanksgiving cards and then benadryling up!
