So I didn't ace it....

...but I feel like I still did really well on my biology test last night. I know I missed at least 1/2 point (no biggie, really) on something stupid that I KNEW but blanked on. Stupid cellular respiration. I am pretty sure I got an A still, so I am trying not to think about it much now.

Meanwhile, last night I did another round of extra credit that has been offered, so that will help with the lab I will be missing next week while on vacation. So if I do get an A on the test, even a low A, I will still technically have an A+ in the class because of the extra credit and fact I haven't missed any points on any assignment/test until now. Our teacher did say she might grade this test on a curve if no one aces it. Fingers crossed! LOL!

I joined a Web site for runners recently called Runners Lounge. It's really cool. A lot of my blogging buddies are there, and it's a good way for us to share running info and tips. They have these cool flexible plastic bracelets that say "I AM A RUNNER" on one side and the site address on the other. I got mine in the mail today, and I seriously think wearing it helped with my evening run!! I don't know why, but it seemed to inspire me to think like a runner again, you know? Plus it's dark blue, and I LOVE blue!!

So I had a great run and ended up going farther than I originally planned. I probably would have kept going had it not been getting dark out. I think I will wear that bracelet every time I run now. :-) So thanks to Amy and Tom at Runners Lounge!

I bet everyone else in class hopes you didn't ace it AND it's graded on a curve. Man, you're really kicking butt in that course. Good for you! And great job on the run, especially going further than intended.
