this post title is mainly referring to the Flyers 2007 exec board elections. As I previously hinted, I did get nommed for something. Specifically, 2 nominations for president (supposedly I did get a nomination for VP too, but that never was confirmed…) As much as I would have loved to have been involved in next year’s exec board, I had to decline my nominations. The primary reason is-you guessed it-work. I still will be an active Flyer, and will still be involved, but can’t be to that extent right now. I already had to slack on my Flyer responsibilities the last couple of months due to the workload kicking me in the ass, and since the situation does not look to be getting any better…just wouldn’t be right to take something like this on. Honestly, I thought I’d be relieved to get a year break, but I actually feel a little disappointed. First off, there is a great group of candidates (including 2 fellow bloggers-I’ll let them out themselves if they want to) that would have made a great team. But moreso, having to put aside something that would have made me happy because of something that does not make me happy at all (this may be the topic of a future blog post.)
This weekend went by way too fast, as has seemed to be the case lately…yesterday I took pictures of the Holiday 5-Miler and then attended our “Meet the Candidates” event. Even with 2 uncontested positions, this is going to be one very close election-so many great candidates. Last night was a very fun 70s-theme party (I had to raid my mom’s closet for this one-she actually had a very cool top that she wore in the 70s. I wore it last night and it was a hit) and today was a lazy day of sorts. But last night was just one of those good nights that i really needed big time after this past workweek.
As for the running, I’m actually feeling a little better about it, especially after talking to a few of my teammates-good to know that I’m not alone in feeling like this. And I had a little talk with Coach J yesterday after the candidates event-he gave me a little debriefing of my marathon training. And as for future goals-he told me based on this marathon-where the training plan wasn’t one to give one an “optimal” performance, but just to get to the start for the first time-that a BQ is definitely in my future, possibly as early as my second one. Of course, whether that will definitely be the goal next year has yet to be decided…(i’m thinking 3:50 for now-will be adjusted based on how the spring goes.)
Ran 20 miles this week-highest since the marathon. 4 days running, 2 days spinning, finally sorta feeling back on track. And it is December 3rd and I have yet to wear tights once since I put them away for the spring/summer 🙂 Though I have a feeling that might come to an end this week. Just hope it will be shorts weather on Sunday-I already have my outfit picked out :-p
