To Run or Not To Run?

Please send me productivity vibes today! I have lots to do and its already 10:00 AM! I feel like my day is slipping away from me already, and my TO-DO list (for today) is already 16 items long!

First (and most important) item on my list are two scholarship essays I have to finish. I am hoping to get a scholarship for next Fall because it would finance all my classes. How awesome would that be? That would rock my financial world! One of the questions I have to answer is:

What does the word “diversity” mean to you?

So if you have any words of wisdom for me in terms of “diversity,” please let me know! I need all the help I can get to make it a rocking essay!

Other than essay writing, I have 5 articles that I need to finish for my new freelancing gig! So I must get the creative juices flowing!

I love to start off the days where I get to start my morning slower without running out the door with a big bowl of oats and tea.

I had some Zaydie’s granola and I added in a banana and some PB.

****THIS JUST IN****

My friend Jill just told me that she had signed up for the Ambler Frostbite 5-Miler tomorrow, but she can’t run it because she is sick. She offered me her spot because the race is sold out.


I have the Disney Princess Half and the NYC Half coming up, both right around the corner. I have been training for the longer distance, and I know 5 miles won’t be a problem, I guess I am just being lazy and want to sleep in tomorrow! But I also don’t want to risk injuring myself either. I also have a slight obsession with race bibs, and it would be a good way to start off the weekend. What do I do?

What do you think?

    I say run it, I'm doing a 10K the weekend before my half. If you start feeling any discomfort then back off and slow it down but it's always fun to get out there and run with a group of people.

    And I suck at essays or I'd offer some help. Even though I have a blog I actually hate writing…except on my blog. LOL

    I say use the 5 miler as a training run.

    And as far as the essay goes, I took a whole class about diversity in the classroom (it's an education class, obviously). One of the most important things I learned in that class is that diversity is so much more than race, gender, or sexual orientation. The kind of high school you graduated from, your birth order, and anything else that defines who you are as a person make you diverse. It was really interesting to think of all the different things that make us diverse that we might normally take for granted. Hope that helps! Good luck!

    Run it!

    Diversity to me is not just a persons cultural background. it is who they are as a person. Their own unique characteristics.

    I agree that you should use the race as a training run!
