I keep seeing other people apologize for not having posted in a while, and think, "Oh, yeah, I haven't seen them around." Then I take a look at my own journal and realize I'm in the same boat. I keep thinking that I post more often... probably because I read my fee just about every day and comment on other people's posts. Anyway, here's some news from my life:Running
Previously, on The Running Saga, I ran for 35 minutes straight. Recently, I ran for a lot longer than 35 minutes and ran for 3.25 miles on Labor Day. I estimate that the running part took me approximately 55 minutes or so, making my running speed considerably slower than my walking speed and probably putting me in the running
for the Slowest Runner Ever award.
The season finale of The Running Saga was my attempt to run through the entire Color Run (an easy, flat 5K). I DID run approximately 2/3rds of the course, but the middle was really loose gravel that defeated even my sluggish pace. I finished strong and definitely feel good about what I did accomplish.
It's weird, because if anyone had told me I'd ever run three miles at once, at any point prior to oh, last October, I would have laughed in their face. Now I find myself saying things like, "What I really want to do is work on my speed and get to where I can run a 5K in about 30-35 minutes."Condo
My condo and I are getting along really well. There is still plenty to do, but nothing that needs to be done Right Now. My roommate also moved in a couple weeks ago, and I think that's going to work out well. The only problem so far has been making myself go to bed instead of staying up and watching TV and talking with her!Video Games
I am always so far behind on these things--but I want to record this here anyway: I FINALLY beat Mass Effect. Yes, the first one. I'm still unspoiled for the next two, too (well, mostly), and I'm pretty happy about that. I really enjoyed it, especially once I figured out where I'd gone wrong (let me count the ways) and fixed it. So once I get a few minutes, I'll start on the second one and see what happens.Ficathons
I signed up for sg1friendathon
with a Sam & Janet prompt that I have no ideas for. I started writing something that I think has potential, but it doesn't really fit the prompt at all. I'd feel worse about that, but... it was my own prompt. So hopefully I'm the only person I'll disappoint. Anyway, the dealine is coming up way too quickly, so we'll see what happens.What I plan on watching this fall
Once Upon a Time
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (okay, I think that'll just be SHIELD
from now on)
Parks and Recreation
I can't see how I'll have time for all that, but if I have extra, I have these two on my list:
Person of Interest
Anything else I should DEFINITELY put on my list?
