Ahead of schedule [May. 3rd, 2008|05:38 pm]

How peculiar. In the nightmare world of economics, I seem to be half an hour ahead of schedule. 
I do have 70 pages of micro left to cover today, but I think its well worth my while to take half an hour out and be sociable with the internet. Then another half an hour's work before Who!

In non-exam news, last month I was bribed with a t-shirt into promising to run the Race for Life.
Dundee's race is on the 15th June (six weeks away). So having not run for anything other than the bus in about 15 years, I've been trying to get out there a couple of times a week, and am slowly moving from walking (with occasional bursts of jogging)  to jogging (and occasionally slowing to a walk). 

Its still not fun, but this afternoon I covered 2.8 miles, mostly jogging, in half an hour. Next weekend I'm going to try for the full 5k. 
Trawling for sponsorship will follow as soon as I get my act together and find the web link.

Hot damn, girl. Run Helen, run!

Can't wait for updates on how it goes.

I always have thought runner's bodies were pretty hot. Maybe it's just the shorts and cute college T-s, but... never mind. That's just me talking.

Not quite ready for shorts yet - in fact the idea of anyone else seeing me run - I don't just go pink, but quite purple, and there's a vein in my forehead that pops out... not attractive.

I could send you a St. Kate's or University of Minnesota T, and then everyone would could stare at that rather than your vein.

Hmmmmm. Maybe, given where the "St. Kate" would be plastered, that wouldn't help you out with the preferring inconspicuousness look...
