Chirp, chirp.

This title is ridiculously deceiving.  While I'm sure most of you pictured this:

I was picturing this

Why crickets?  Because that's how my brain feels right now.  I have time to write a post, but nothing really comes to my mind to write about.  I don't want to browse for a Craving post because that's depressing due to the fact that my pay day is not until next Friday.  Basically my mind is overwhelmed with all things school.  Thank you so much for the kind, supportive, and understanding comments you all left yesterday.  It's good to know that I'm not the only one.  Tomorrow I'll be at school late looking at test scores and calling parents (ugh, my least favorite part).

I did want to mention the run I think I am going to do for my 10k in July.  Living in Raleigh has lots of advantages, one being that we live only 2 hours from the coast (and only 3 hours from the fabulous Outer Banks, which you HAVE to visit if ever in NC).  Being a teacher has lots some advantages, one being that I have two months off in the summer.  Perfect opportunity to travel to the beach for a 10k!  In Atlantic Beach, NC, they do a summer beach running series.  They started the series last week.  To qualify for any prizes you have to participate in 4 of the 6 runs, but who are we kidding?  I'm not winning any awards here!  Each run is on a Tuesday or Thursday and on the beach.  Oh, and it costs $3.00/person.  What?!  I'm actually wondering if that's a typo.  The run takes place on the beach (which could be an issue) and starts at 6:30 in the evening.  I'm hoping D and I can make a long weekend of it!  I'm killing Couch to 10k these days (almost 5 miles this week!).  I'm feeling really motivated to stick with the plan.  I finally hit up the doctor, and my runs are feeling ten times better than they have in the past 6 months at least.  

[Damn, next thing you know I'll be looking fierce like her]

I'll try to remember to do a post on my newfound philosophy of being a "runner."  To all my runners, keep it up!  I'm feeling more and more confident and strong about my body every day.
