Next big race

You're thinking Rocky Raccoon, right? Well, my weekend started off with a chilly 11 mile run on Saturday morning. I had plans to do another 13 today, but between the weather and last night's activities, I decided it was a good day to stay in my sweats.

What was last night's activities, you ask? Well, here's a hint:

That's not a dentist chair. Still not sure? Here's another shot:

It's not finished, so I'm not going to post any other pics just yet. Once it's done I'll do before, during, and after shots. But if you're wondering, I was sitting in the chair for longer than I was running yesterday. All I can say so far is AWESOME.
I really hate to say this, but I probably won't be running Rocky. I started another kind of training this weekend, studying for the SE or structural engineering licensure exam. Another reason I wasn't outside today was I was parked at the kitchen table studying. After 4 short hours of studying, I realized that I have a whole lot of information to cover before April 8. While that may sound like a long time, I know that I don't have enough time to train for a 50 miler and properly study for this exam at the same time. That might mean a $75 race entry fees goes down the drain, but I've already put more than that into this test and I haven't even paid my registration fees yet. So, I don't think Rocky is going to happen for me this year.

The saddest part of this picture is that I only have half of the design codes books here that I'm required to have for the test and that doesn't include the personal references and text books that are allowed. I still need to figure out how I'm going to get all of this into the exam sight. I'm thinking a little red wagon.
