Making the most of it
As my season came to an end on July 19th, I've been trying to make the best out of the downtime I'll have until September when I start base training. It's been quite a task to not go run. It's amusing to me that a majority of people have a difficult time going out for a run and here I am having difficulty not running. I have so much free time (okay not that much) that I don't know what to do with myself, lucky for me the Olympics are on so they have helped me pass a bit of the time away. The rest has been divvied up between sleeping, eating, working and actually having a social life. I've watched Shakespeare in the Commons, auctioned myself off to raise money, danced the night away, lunches, dinners, BBQs, celebrated my birthday, watched amazing athletes become the best in the world, this weekend I have a wedding and the next I fly down to VA for another wedding. It's been a great summer but I really can't wait to start running again. It's one of those itches that you can't stop scratching.
