I took the Oregon Bar exam this past week. I don't really want to talk about it. I had some interesting physical reactions though. First the last 2 weeks of studying, I got a reoccurring crazy itchy rash on my upper thighs and wrists. Second, I went from my usual "I can't stop stuffing my face with junk food" stress eating to not being hungry at all. AT ALL. Very un-Jayme-like.
I officially have have the world's best boyfriend ever. He took my on a surprise horseback riding tour and massage the day after. Fab U Lous.
The race world has been non existent. The Long course tri happened and I found out that they forgot to take my entry out right after bike check-in closed. I was tempted to do the race on a whim, but like I said... missed check-in. I did a relay Oly tri at Hagg lake with TH and a friend. I really felt left out and not doing the entire thing, but it was nice to be done after the swim. I squeezed into my "new" full sleeve suit and had a 7 min PR on the swim, even though I missed a buoy and had to back track.
Yesterday, TH and I ran in the Wildwood Trail 10K at Forest Park. TH had registered me a week ago as I was busy studying. I really didn't think much about the race. We showed up and realized that I wasn't on the confirmation list. It was a sold out race. Anyways, the race director took our sob story and let me run anyways. We later DID have to pay an increased race fee. The race was a trail run that was pretty much uphill for 3.25 miles. It was a 6.5 mi race but was listed as a 10K. Towards mile 2 my heart rate skyrocketed and I knew I had to slow down. I gave in a walked for about half a mile. It sucked. A lot of people passed me. I then decided to start running again and passed most of the people who passed me. I was so thrilled the see the turnaround cone and flew back downhill. It was kinda scary running so fast down hill with switchbacks and roots and rocks everywhere. I managed to only twist my ankle once but now it's uber sore.
I ended up getting 3rd in my age division (20-29). I was not far behind 2nd or 1st place. Made me kind of regret walking, but I was still happy to have done as well as I did considering I haven't ran for a really llng time. My runs have been easy 10min/mi jogs here and there and that's about it. I had one longer run with TH but mostly just 3 miles.
Now all I have to do is find a job. It's horrible to say but I've resorted to seeking non-lawyer jobs due to the lack of jobs anywhere. It's pretty crappy that I'm even considering that option, let alone actually doing it, but Girl has loans to pay. I swear, law school has been the biggest case of buyer's remorse.
I don't get the Bar results back until September 22nd. Prob, didn't pass seeing that day two left me speechless.
