Sunday Runday: How's it Going?

Welcome to Sunday Runday! This is a weekly series of posts relating to running and race training, all leading up to our group race day (see here).

We are two short weekends away from our St. Patrick's Day 8k!  Who's excited?  My schedule is simmering down a bit, but I've missed several weeks of training due to trial and I suspect I may have to resign myself to walking for a portion of this upcoming 8k.  But hey, it'll be better than nothing.

Tell me how you're doing!  Also, perhaps it's time to start thinking about post-race brunch?  If you'll be in town and are interested in meeting up for a bite after the run, please let me know, either in the comments or via email.

I had the thought this morning that I've been a pretty sorry e-friend for the last few weeks; I've been reading your comments and you've made me feel warm and fuzzy and have given me all sorts of motivation to sleep and be healthy, but I haven't been giving very much back to you in terms of comments or interesting content.  I apologize, and I appreciate your patience.  Do you ever feel as though you have a finite amount of creative energy?  I feel like I'm putting so much creativity into my job right now that I have a hard time even mustering up the energy to respond to simple personal emails.

If I sound like I'm complaining, I don't mean to sound that way at all.  I would work on six trials a year if I could; this whole experience has been absolutely amazing.  I've learned so much about what it takes to pull together a trial and I feel as though I'm a hugely better lawyer today than I was even a week ago.  It's a satisfying feeling to spend your life building up to the career of your choice only to realize that it truly is what you want to do with your life after all.  I hope this feeling sticks.

Speaking of my life, it's my birthday today!  I'm celebrating by...putting in a full day at the office.  But hey, I get to sit in on court proceedings tomorrow, so it'll all be worth it.  (I did get some spare time last night to check out the local casino; ringing in my 28th year playing poker is just fine by me!  Amazingly, one of the other guys at the table celebrated his birthday yesterday, and a third person will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow!  What are the chances?)
