Every now and then I feel I should take a break about just blogging about poverty. Even though I do feel it is an important issue and I do continue to keep writing about how I am tackling the issue at my job, I also want to write about lighter things too. These posts will be called #OffTheRecord and will cover whatever is on my mind.
This #OffTheRecord is about my new apartment and my on and off and on again 5k training. Some of you might now that I got a new apartment. I LOVE it. I am rooming with my bestie again (we roomed together in college for 3 years). Our apartment is so modern and just has a fresh feel to it. The neighborhood is nice and its affordable. But most of all, I love the fact that I am rooming with my bestie again. It was cool having my own apartment but there were times I would come home and wish someone was there to talk too (and believe we talk about EVERYTHING lol). I have finally got everything moved in but now it's a matter of unpacking boxes and getting the other boxes thrown away. We don't have a cable yet so basically I have been either reading or watching DVDs particularly Martin season 3 and 4. It's nice to come home to a place of your own and relax. Yep, I think I am going to like it.
As I stated before, I have been training (kinda) for the 2011 Women Can Run 5k. I signed up for it last month and have been able to attend a few of the running clinics. Because of moving, traveling for work, and other random life mishaps I have not been able to go to all the running clinics. But I have tried to do some running on my own. Unfortunately, because of the rain I have not been able to run too much after work but I hope in the next week I can get a couple of practice runs in. My ultimate goal is to finish the race, rather I run the whole thing, run some walk some, or walk the whole 5k. I just want to be able to say that I finished a 5k. I know that this is possible.
Well, that is all I have for now. I will keep you posted on more of my apartment, training, and most definitely my work and how we are fighting hunger issues.
