A decade. That’s, like, a pretty big chunk of time. Nearly one third of my life.
And yet, it seems like yesterday!
I admit, I’m a bit disillusioned with the latest in pop-crap-hop. (Call me Mr. Flintstone, I can make your bed rock? Really?) So I looked to earlier times for this month’s tunes. Circa 2000:
I had SO much fun putting this together. It was like being back on the lawn in North Quad, drinking wine from a box and soaking up the sunshine!
Ten years ago, I was:
…halfway through my sophomore year of college. I’d just changed majors from biology to something totally different and entered the Politics, Philosophy and Economics program. (Great decision.)
…in the midst of my second season of college track – although my interest was waning. I’d go on to finish out my college running career, but never with as much focus or drive as I’d had before. As it turns out, having a normal college life outside of running was important to me too. (Also a great decision.)
…a year and a half into a relationship with the guy now known as the hubs. (Great decision? Of course!)
…contemplating a marathon. I would run my first one that fall, with no more training than a couple of two-hour runs, and cross the line in 3:42. I’ve run one per year ever since. And I’ve yet to beat that 3:42.
…logging lots of hours at the campus pool, basking in the sunshine, while “studying” and rocking out to awesome music, as demonstrated above. (Yep, campus pool. Resort style pool, complete with chaise lounges and a snack bar. Be jealous.)
Ah, memory lane. Such a fun place to take a stroll. I can’t wait to relive the glory days every time I pop in my earbuds.
Today’s EAT: I am so stuffed with chips and guac right now that I can barely move! The hubs and I met up with some friends for dinner at Dos Caminos. It was a tasty splurge! I have zero self control when it comes to salty, freshly-made tortilla chips.
Today’s DRINK: A delicious margarita followed by a Corona!
Today’s RUN: Day off! And very much needed – I’ve run the last eight days in a row.
Today’s QUESTION: Rewind ten years – what were you doing a decade ago?
