Protest and Plunge

Things have been pretty busy as of late! But there have been two major developments.

The first one concerns running. The exciting news is that I got a new running accessory: Nathan Trail Mix hydration belt. Now I don't have to carry my interval timer (clips to the belt), water, cell phone and mace while trying to run! And I have to admit I felt more like a real runner when I wear my fancy hydration belt.

The real development is that my body is officially protesting running. I had a pretty crappy run earlier this week that resulted in plantar fasciitis aka crazy intense arch pain! I saw the doctor and am not allowed to run for at least 2 weeks! If you did the math correctly, that means I'm going to miss my first 5k! I'm so bummed. The doctor did say I could run the 5k, but I'd be in physical therapy afterward. Ugh! My body really needs to get on board with this running stuff!

Development #2 is a bit more exciting. I recently found out that I have enough credits and accounting courses to qualify to sit for the CPA exam in North Carolina. When I decided to pursue my MBA, I thought the CPA wasn't going to be a possibility. I have been doing research about the CPA exam and have been hesitant to commit since I don't want to do it half-way. But I think I'm going to take the plunge and start studying in January, with the help of Becker. My goal is to have all 4 parts passed by summer (if I can pass them all on the first try), or at least by the end of 2011. Good-bye social life in 2011!
