I Am Amazing

Saturday I received my acceptance package from The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. I also received a Merit Scholarship from The Academy. I am so happy :)

Monday I ran my first 5K. I unintentionally completed 2.1 miles, took a 4 minute break, and continued to finish an additional mile without a problem. Thus, my first 5K at the gym on Monday. I did it in 42 minutes... a little longer than most people, but I am excited... it will just get better from here. Oh, also, I started running for the first time in my life about 3 - 4 weeks ago. I didn't even complete the mile in high school gym.
I feel that my running process is similar to my art process. When I started running the other day, I got a cramp after not too long.... but my legs didn't hurt, they weren't tired, and I wasn't out of breath, so I told myself to keep going. And I did. Time didn't drag like it normally does. It was the most out-of-body experience I have encountered since I've been painting.

Let's just say I am amazing and leave it at that.
