have been sick lately. not swine flu (i think?). Just allergies, a cold, maybe turning into sinus infection? grossness. stayed home sick from work Friday. Ended up going up to New Haven for Admitted Students' Weekend. Had a most excellent time. I am very excited for school.
Sunday I ran a half marathon, 13.1 miles. It was HARD. It was also 80 degrees by 8AM, so that was not a lot of fun. I drank so much at the water/gatorade stops that I had to stop to pee. I got through 10 miles okay, but the rest was just killer. I ended up walking a fair amount of the last 3 miles, so my final time was 2:33 instead of the 2:14 it would have been if I could have stuck to my pace. Oh well. It was SO hot. Sometimes when I run I feel at the end that I could have tried harder, but not this one. I was just shaking at the end, so exhausted.
Then Kate drove me to her dad's house in Queens where a little girl said she liked my medal(!), I showered, I put eucerin on my blisters, and we went to kate's friend's wedding on Long Island. Italian Catholics = delicious food. I was so tired, though. I fell asleep in the car on the way home and left Kate, who was also exhausted from getting up early for my race and an all-night writing a paper the night before, to make sure we got home safely.
She said she was glad I hadn't been awake to see how fast she'd been driving. I did think it was remarkable that we got home as early as we did...
I spent most of tonight trying to figure out student loan stuff. Bah. This is hard! I'm very lucky I've never had to do it before. I'm also totally lost because I've never had to do it before. I had maybe been going to go to a Shondes concert tonight because it was in Brooklyn and I haven't seen them play in a long time, but I needed to do this loan research even if I made no concrete progress. Also wasn't I too tired to go out after trapeze class or something anyway? yes. still am. goodnight.

I'm with you on the loan stuff- all my undergrad loans were the subsidized federal kind, so I've never had to comparison shop. But I think I found one I'll be happy with. Or as happy as one can be when carrying high-five-figures of debt, I guess.
