RunTalya 2009

This weekend, I ran the 4K Fun run with some friends. It was a really great time, but I'm feeling the soreness coming on...but I feel motivated to try to do more running..especially now that the weather is starting to warm up...Spring is on its way! Yea! Its my favorite time of the year! Izehi has been training for 3 - 4 months now and she did the 10K and ran the whole thing! I'm proud of her! :) Today is International Women's Day so the races were free for any woman that wanted to enter! Yea for free stuff! :))

Being Still

This past week has been absolutely crazy. I'm taking a Turkish class right now and I am in class all morning and part of the afternoon, then have anywhere from 1 1/2 - 2 hours of homework everyday. I tell you, when I'm finished, my brain is done for the day. Trying to learn another language is a whole other ball game for me. My brain feels like its all swollen everyday and I mean that literally. It is the strangest thing.

So on Friday, I was at the end of my rope. My brain was tired. I'd forgotten my name, how to speak English or Turkish, I even got mad at Enes because I couldn't understand him, but it was only because I was so tired. SOOO this weekend, I did nothing. Izehi is out of town so I had the place to myself. I didn't even leave my apartment. I watched a couple of movies, slept, did some laundry, ate all the leftovers in the house, had some great quiet times and that was about it. You know when you are used to going a million miles an hour and then you stop, how hard it is to be still. That was me on Friday night. Being completely exhausted and trying to be still and my mind still going. Today is Sunday and I can say that I have slowed myself down but I could use another day.

But back to class in the morning! I have 10 days left and hope that I make it. I'm wondering how much more information my little brain can take! :)
