So yes I thought I'd update you all.  Actually I'm trying to find ways to procrastinate.  I've been in the library working on projects since 9am this morning and it's getting around that time when I'm starting to lose my wits.  So indulge me while I procrastinate.

As for running, well there really hasn't been a lot of it lately.  I think I've run a total of 3 miles in the past month.  The reason for it is due to a bunch of things.  My free time has dropped significantly so running has been put on the back burner.  The one thing is I just don't feel like running, which is a weird feeling.  I think I've figured it out though as being a result of lack of calorie intake.  I hadn't anticipated that my eating habits would be so terrible since returning to school.  Hot dog for lunch, chocolate bar for dinner.  I'm surprised that I even have any energy at all.  Thankfully, I've only put on about 2 pounds, but I'm sure my body fat percentage has increased.  I can't even fathom trying to train for a marathon based on the food, or lack thereof I've been eating.

What this basically means is that I'm not doing the Boston marathon this year. I have a take home exam due on the day of the marathon and then another exam two days later.  I could probably go and have a terrible experience considering the lack of training and all and then regret it when I stumble into class 2 days later to try and write an exam in pain, so I figure it's best to just not go.  Yes, it will probably be the last chance of doing Boston for a while since they lowered the BQ time to 3:10 for my age group.  Did 3:10 once, not sure I could ever to it again.

Anyhow, I should probably get back to these projects.  Thanks for reading.
