Chick: You know, even though I'm 22, every time I go out, when I'm home my mom still waits up for me.
Random guy: No, she doesn't.

my 8K is on sunday morning, and my left calf and shin are a mess. i demoted myself down to the 8K from the half marathon due to my calf issues. but somehow this week, the calf deteriorated. is it psychosomatic? maybe. but it hurts to walk and put pressure on the stupid thing.

i cannot tell you how badly i want to run this. i am toying with the idea of popping an advil and running the race through the pain. is this smart? is this worth it? i do not know. but i'll probably decide on sunday.

new britney + chuck bass = best ever?


it was an extremely difficult decision to make, but i switched my philly half marathon to the 8K. i once read in a runner's magazine two important questions regarding injuries: "do you want to run for the next few weeks? or the rest of your life?"

i'd like to run for the rest of my life! so i'm gonna be nice to my stupid calf and give it a break. (is an 8K a break??) but be warned, calf. i just registered for the pittsburgh half marathon in may. (woohoo!)
