This is "sort of" an update because there isn't much to say. It has been almost a week since I've been out running. Reasons: exams, getting into a new routine at home and then the final hit of food poisoning. Of course, any excuse other than the food poisoning is just that, an excuse. This recent setback has me a bit worried about finishing the half marathon in Feb. It is much closer than I had realized and I'm getting behind, not ahead. I hope I'm determined enough not to fail at this!
