I'm sitting here waiting for some noodles to finish cooking; I got home at 8:45pm from the second round of Principal interviews (and for me it really was "the best was saved for last.") I was worried that no candidates were going to be "good enough." But, yada, yada, yada. It's out of our hands now (the staff panel); the Board has the final call-back interviews next Tuesday and they have the final vote.
Anyway, I literally dropped everything at the door, ran to the bedroom and did a power-change-of-clothes that even the top modeling agencies would be amazed with!!! I NEEEEEDED to get a "good" run (even though it may be short) before Saturday's race. I was out the door at 8:48pm, light diminishing FAST, wearing my visible WHITE running jersey and cute little red "light-flashy-thingy" that my sister gave me for Christmas. It FINALLY got used! The run was short, but GOOD! I only did the 2 mile run (1.8 to be more exact); the weather was PERFECTLY cool, no sun. And BOY, did it get dark FAST! I saw a couple of deer, and thankfully no bears. I did panic myself about the bears after I saw the deer.....my mind went to instant "uh-oh! Are the bears going to come out? Is there a known "mama" in the area that I don't know about that may be protecting cubs?" But all was well.
*sigh* I am sooooo thankful I was able to get a GOOOOD run in! Last Saturday's race and Tuesday's too-soon-after-supper" run just weren't sitting well with me as the final runs to go into Saturday with. I now feel confident that I CAN finish those hills in 2:30----and maybe even 2:20????
Okay all---off to eat some carbs! I'm a bit starved! I didn't think of eating BEFORE the interviews tonight----DUH!
