Love/Don't Love

1. For the last three weeks, The Pilot and I have been pretty sure that he wouldn't be able to make it to DC for the marathon. As a newbie pilot with the airline, his ability to take days off is virtually non-existent but somehow he was able to finagle the day off and so for the second time in my running career, I'll be stealing kisses at Mile 6 and sharing space blanket hugs at the finish line with my handsome guy. Love.

2. I was planning to go to yoga this morning but instead spent my entire morning sitting in front of my computer finishing a paper. Don't Love.
3. Yesterday, I ran 15 miles in Central Park. Despite the fact that Central Park was absolute chaos because of the breast cancer walk, I had a great run and for the first time ever after doing a long run, I'm not sore at all...which is a huge improvement from not being able to walk for 2 days after last week's 21-miler. Love.

At the SI Half Finish Line.
No fist pump, no wave, no smile...clearly I waned this race to be over.
4. My knee was bothering me for the first 3 or so miles of yesterday's run. It also bothered me around Mile 2 of the Staten Island Half which is what led me to resort to walking. I've been icing, RICE-ing, arctic easing, etc. but I'm a little concerned as to whether it gives me problems at MCM. Don't Love.
5. Pan-Am was so good last night! Love.
6. School is getting harder. Lately I find myself saying, "I just need to get through this week and I'll be fine"...except I've been saying that for the last three weeks. Don't Love.

7. I'm thrilled that so many of you share in my obsession commitment to all things pumpkin. Love.

That's that! I only have about 6 weeks to get through the semester. That's 1 midterm, 2 papers and 1 final. I can totally handle it...I just need to get through this week first...

I hope your week is off to a great start!
Congratulations to everyone who raced this weekend!


  1. I am so loving Pan Am myself!

    You are going to rock MCM, Christy. You have been such an inspiration to me! I'm so glad your love will be there to cheer you on!

  2. Good luck getting through the rest of your semester! Congrats on a pain-free 15-miler! Awesome :)

  3. Congrats on your marathon! And hooray for the pilot getting to be there for you!!

    And pumpkin is the BEST! LOVE!

  4. I wish I was in NYC to go to yoga! Another time for sure! Glad The Pilot can go to DC for the marathon!

  5. I feel the same about you will this semester - every time I blog I say it looks like things are starting to slow down! and then they never do :/ But my last final is the 14th of Nov and then a couple of weeks after that I'm off the the USA for Christmas :)

    Good luck prepping for the marathon and finishing up the semester!


  6. You can do it! Just think: in a few short months, we'll both have our Master's degrees and be on our way! :) In the meantime, keep praying to St. Joseph of Cupertino (the patron saint of students and schoolwork.)

    PS: I'm so glad that The Pilot can make it to DC; tell him to take plenty of pictures!

  7. YEAH for having the Pilot with you on marathon day. Having my BF with me makes all the difference!! Good luck,you are ready for MCM!!

  8. Omg, EVERY DAY I say "If I just get through this day/week/month/semester, everything will be AWESOME." I'm starting to think that nothing is going to change haha!

  9. Love this post.
    Don't love that your knee was bothering you.
    Love that The Pilot gets to see you run again.
    Don't love all the work that you have.
    Love that I get to meet you FINALLY in real life in a couple weeks!!!

  10. Yay for the pilot getting to be at your run!! And pumpkin rocks :)

  11. I heard you on the pumpkin love! Hopefully it can help your knee!
