I did 7 miles in 1:08:15 for a pace of 9:45.
A good chunk of my run was spent running around my alma mater. I ran around some old party houses surrounding school and the campus, and it was a ridiculous run through memory lane. I'm definitely one of those people that loooooooooved college. I would go back in 12 seconds (if someone else was paying for it, of course). I started tabulating a list of things that I loooooooved and miss about college and that got me through a good 2 miles worth of hells. ;)
Things I miss about college:
- Having your best friend live 10 feet away. I'm not sure how many times Megan could hear me sprint down the hall before the typical two knock and enter to tell her whatever story of the day.
- 1am coffee and junk food runs. I'm a girl that loves my junk food. And it's just dandy to have someone join you for those. :)
- Cute smart football players. I went to a super smart school, so 90% of the football players were actually super duper smart as well. Where do I sign up for my jersey chasing card? :p Sidenote: This ruined me for real life. Where are all the real world smart football players?!?!? :(
- Theme parties. I swear my friends would throw a theme party every other weekend. Here's just a few pictures I was able to find.
Anything but clothes party senior year. Scarf+pillow case for me. PACE flag for Meg-o. Green fabric to cover the bum.
80's theme sophomore year. Sidenote: Most of my guy friends wore pairs of my shorty shorts with their outfits. :)
Dress your Own Theme party night before graduation.
We dressed up as two of our good guy friends (Megan's had a mustache obviously). Somehow a food fight broke out.... The details are hazy.
Toga party during homecoming senior year. Again..... a pillow case for me.
And a flower stolen out of someone's garden.
Toga party junior year. I remember walking blocks to the party in a blizzard. What a treat.
- Being able to procrastinate starting a paper until the night before it was due, knocking out 15 pages, and pulling off an A-. Hmmm... maybe if I had tried, I would've gotten a 4.0. Details.....
- Intramurals. I was an intramural nut! Not only did I work at our rec department creating all of the intramural schedules for 70-80 intramural events, but I also participated in...uh... almost everything. Take my competitiveness for running and multiply that times 100. I have at least 15 intramural championship shirts under my belt.
Our stellar women's volleyball team.
Our super tall 3 on 3 team. We averaged about 5'3" I think. DOMINATION.
And our B.A. co-ed volleyball team.
- Having someone else prepare your meals for you. Even if they were garbage 90% of the time.
- Spending 90 minutes studying for a test and doing well on it (I have extreme test anxiety, so this was quite the feat for me).
- Being around a ton of people that have common interests. Being in an office where I'm essentially the only non-married, non-parent makes me long for the days where everyone was the same. Hah.
Alright. Thanks for walking down memory lane with me. :)
