Too Many Meetings

So our plan was to run 3 or so miles this morning before coming into work. That of course was before there was a new "task force" created here at work which apparently I need to be a part of even though it has NOTHING to do with my thesis topic which I am just NOW getting to work on. These meetings are going to be at 8:30 or 9am on Monday mornings and Monday evenings I play volleyball at work which in the end makes for about a 12 hour day. AUGH!!!!

I love the concept of the "task force" being created now when the problem the force is addressing is a problem that has been around for years. That's what you get working for an organization that is a part of the Department of Energy....lots of task forces....not a lot of things accomplished execpt more meetings and more discussing.

Talk amongst yourselves...i'll give you a topic....

I'll update the blog tomorrow when we get home from running home from the train (very exciting!) Then this week we will run Tue, Wed, Thur, Fri and Sunday.

The one thing I've learned about running a marathon is to not stress so much about when you can get a run in. About the 12 hour work day-take it from me-it's a huge pat on the back to run after a long day. If you can squeeze a long run in after a grueling day at work you can certainly run a marathon. Hang in there!

There is something to be said about running after a long day! You get home from work, and you are tired and I am usually frustrated with problems at work. But coming home and lacing up the shoes and getting out the door, man does that feel good (most of the time!). I don't know, I just feel that I can run the day away and kind of close it out. On more than one occasion a problem that I couldn't figure out at work, the solution came to me in the middle of a run.
