I am late to the party. (I don't mind.)
I've run 5x/week every week this month. This statement will become true so long as I get my run in today. I'm holding steady at 21 miles/week right now. I'd like to get it up to 25 in December. I have a 5k (my 2nd race since re-re-re-re-starting running this go around) on Friday. I would like to PR, which would require a sub-29:26 time. I am pretty sure I can manage that. I hit 29:26 on a 5k exactly a week ago today (Why did I sign up for 2 races so close together? It was not driven by sense, I tell you) and in training since then I feel really confident that I can go faster than that this time around.
I'm single again! As it often happens with me, I am glad to be single; I am single because I decided I did not want to be in the relationship any longer. I regained solo dolo status a little over a month ago, so while this is news, it is not fresh.
I enjoyed Thanksgiving with my grandmother, an aunt and uncle, and my parents. My sister went out Thanksgiving Eve and became so successfully hungover that she missed Thanksgiving, which is a definite first for our family. I skipped a Mother's Day in college once, which is my closest personal equivalent.
I have read four books this month and, often when I get home after work, like to refuse to turn the TV on and entertain myself with at least one less screen. I do love the internet and laptop, although I try to spend my time there reading about as many legitimate news articles as I do r/relationships and r/AmITheAsshole shitposts.
I am grateful for you all. I am glad you came by here and said hi. In fact, I'm grateful for Hubski.
Whatever time of day it is where you are, I hope you're having a great one.
