Weekends are no excuse for laziness.

Not when you’re in hustling mode like I am, anyway.
I think it all started with my crazy late-night design marathon last weekend. Seriously, I hustled, and it felt so good to actually accomplish that, as rough as it was on my body. If that is what happens when you dilly-dally in procrastination on a Saturday afternoon like I did, then consider my lesson learned. But really, the most valuable part was the gleeful realization in the midst of the craziness of it all that I was having an absolute ball. You can’t beat that.
Still, it hasn’t been smooth sailing, of course. Nagging self doubts will always pop up when people don’t return your emails full of entreaties to work for them for no pay except the mere honor of being able to do so. But, and I do hope I’m not jinxing myself by mentioning it here, I did finally get a kindly response right as I was leaving work for the night, so at the very least there is some sort of light shining from somewhere that will inspire me to take heart and keep chugging along, even if that leads directly to nothing else.
Also! In more exciting news, Coach J has kindly offered to help me with extra speed work on Sunday afternoons. It is exceedingly generous and benevolent on his part, and I am extremely grateful and humbled. My running team is full of such sweet and supportive people, people who are also likewise crazy about running. My social life is lacking in nothing.
