1. So you may have noticed that I’ve been training for a triathlon for a little while now. What you may not know is that I’m totally not registered for it. For a long time I put it off because I wanted to do the Olympic but wasn’t sure I could handle the swim. Now that I’m positive I couldn’t handle the swim, I’ve decided to do the Sprint, but I was still putting it off until I got paid tomorrow. But, for the record, I didn’t register for my first marathon until right before the last price increase so I could still back out, and for my first 10-miler I joined a Cherry Blossom training program…and never registered for the race. I ended up doing the Cherry Pits 10 miler because I could sign up well after CB closed, and it was only $4. The course is also gorgeous but MUCH hillier. Anyway, I’m just saying that even though my awesome tri mentor thinks I’m crazy, I’ve got a system.
2. I’m having yet another quarter-life crisis. I’m pretty sure I can’t be an editor forever, and my dream job isn’t to cram edits down the throats of people who think they don’t need them (whether they need them or not) so if you know of any jobs, send them my way. In the meantime I’ll be all reevaluating my priorities and thinking about (more) grad school and stuff like that. (Grad school would be a no-brainer if I didn’t already have a useless master’s degree–that I really enjoyed getting at least.)
3. Tomorrow is Bike to Work Day! I first participated years and years ago. I rode my bike from Capitol Hill to my office downtown, but was too shy to stop by the pit stop and get my t-shirt. Then two years ago I started bike commuting–in January, no less–and was stoked to celebrate Bike to Work Day with my compatriots. But it was raining. So I took the bus in and felt guilty about it all year until the same thing happened last year, and I was like, whatever, I ride my bike all the time. But tomorrow it’s finally going to happen! Except I really can’t remember if I ever signed up to stop at the Freedom Plaza stop or not… but I guess I don’t really need another t-shirt.
