Rainy Daze

It's Friday the 13th and really dreary outside. Luckily, I'm not superstitious at all.

Well, what's new? Wednesday was my last day in my old job and Thursday I began the new one. The jury is still out...the office is nice, it's close to home and everyone here is nice. However, I'm still not so sure I am cut out to be the boss. Calling all the shots makes me a tad bit nervous. Call me unambitious, but I've never wanted to be the boss. I'll give it some time and see how it goes....

I did get in a run yesterday at the park. I suppose that's a big perk to the new's less than 10 minutes from the park! The weather was beautiful - sunny, 80 degrees and low humidity. A bit on the warm side for me, but still nice. For some reason, after my 1st mile I just felt really flat. I just couldn't seem to maintain that faster pace. I had a pain in my side for 1/2 the loop. Usually, I can change my breathing a bit and it subsides. Not this time. I would slow down, change my breathing and it would go away...but, the minute I started picking up the pace again, it would come back. So, I walked. A lot. But rather than beat myself up about it, I was just happy to be outside again and running. Even with all the walking, I managed to maintain a 10:39 pace. Not too shabby considering a few months ago, that would have been my pace with mostly running.

Tomorrow, I have classes. All day. I have a presentation in Marketing and we'll get our homework and project back in Stat. Wish me luck!
