In keeping with the "end of the first year" theme from 2 weeks ago (stay tuned for another bonus blog this week, since it has been 2 weeks since my last blog), I decided to reflect on a comment I received today. I opened my email from the weekend and in one them was the comment (directed at me), "I expected more from you." Of course, I'm not going to go on and say who said it or even the situation surrounding the comment because it really doesn't matter. The fact is, that comment really stung.
Last week I had a little bit of anxiety, to say the least and believe it or not, it was not because of Heneman's 865 midterm exam, but rather because I knew my first 5k was coming up today. I ran extra on the treadmill this week, thinking that any little bit of extra running I could do would help and I really watched the caloric intake. However, nothing matched the anxiety of this morning. I want everyone to understand my anxiety by saying, that I'm not a runner. I kind of was in high school (purely for tennis), but that was it.
On Sunday, May 1, 2011, I volunteered at the 2011 Fisher 5K. For those of you who don't know, The Fisher 5K is a charity race organized by the Fisher 5K Association at The Fisher College of Business. It is an annual run/walk race (3.1 miles) which began in 2004 and is the largest service event hosted by the Fisher graduate programs and the largest 5K race on campus. The proceeds of the race go to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus.
It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring. I knew the amazing weather wouldn't last long - I've lived in Ohio my entire life, changing weather is Ohio's trademark. Hopefully the weather shapes up for my first bridal shower this weekend! Sad news today though - I misread my indoor/outdoor thermometer, and thought it said 68 degrees for the outside temperature instead of 50, so I'm just wearing a longsleeve t-shirt, with no coat, and it's definitely a little too chilly for that. At least I'll be inside most of the day. A few shameless plugs before I actually start my blog
