Faster, thinner, richer

Let's take it in reverse order.


I just sent in an application for around 2.5 million kroner (half a million dollars) to a private fund to support the PhD project I'm about to start. And, yes, all that money goes to my salary. Just kidding.


Weighed 51.7 kg this morning. Not much of a loss, but at least I'm not gaining.


Ran 6 miles today to drop off the Lorax at day care followed by 3 x 1.03 miles (that is the length of our local track according to my Garmin) over lunch. Times were 6:39, 6:35, 6:45. That's 20 seconds off last week's intervals on the same track.


I found a really cool 80k race on March 20th in Paris (we are considering it):

Great cool down song from Ethiopia: The Response by Tommy T (featuring Gigi)

Ahhh!!! I'm jealous because.... I have no funding for my PhD.... I can only run a 7:30 mile... and I am compulsively finishing the Halloween candy....

I've been getting PR's on every loop I typically run last 2 weeks...yesterday I did 2 runs and both shaved 2 min from each (one road 6M, and one trail 6M). I am surely not richer - my ex decided to abandon the house my name is still on, and I am facing short sale and ruined credit. Nor am I slimmer, though last week I was at my best, but this week I am on period, so it's 4+lbs...usual, but upsetting to see the number.
