I’m not one to toot my own horn. I’m the type of person who is happy doing my thing, whatever that is, without needing any attention or accolades. Having said that, I was given the honor of being the Paraprofessional of the Month for the school district in which I work (which is layman’s terms for non-teacher employee of the month! LOL). Most of you know that I am an introvert at heart, even though I’ve adapted to life enough to pass as an extrovert. Having said that, I was as nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof! Before accepting the award (at the school board meeting!), my principal read what my co-workers wrote when they nominated me. (And then added, “Jennifer does all this inbetween running marantons.”) I was BLOWN AWAY. It is a wonderful feeling to be appreciated.
And in case you didn’t realize how talented I am; I ran between work and the board meeting. Used a shower wipe to clean up (in my office), along with copious amounts of deodorant and perfume. Can you believe how great my hair looks??
So I ran Monday and Tuesday. I just thought Monday’s run was hot at 77 degrees. Yesterday’s run was 82! I am NOT complaining. It has been AWESOME! However, running in the sun with compression socks on Monday already gave me a bit of a tan?!? By the way….Monday’s run was longest since injury – 5.75 miles!! And my body is handling the increases just fine! SO EXCITING!!!
Tuesday’s run was so gorgeous. I love running at this park near Alli’s practice facility.
Alli LOVES Panda Express. Honestly, I die a little bit inside every time I take her there. For one, there is NOTHING nutritious about their food, in my opinion. Secondly, they are AS SLOW AS CHRISTMAS! I tweeted this yesterday while waiting in line.
I translated this to mean that I will get my HM goal by then! 🙂 #winning
And in the words of my friend, Carmen: Happy Hump Day!!
