Monthly Recap: June Edition

It’s hard to believe, but another month has come to an end and we are officially halfway through 2015! June hasn’t been as eventful for me as May. I’ve been occupied with things that are rather mundane but are pointing toward much loftier ends come July and beyond. Sandwiched between the month when I graduated law school and the month when I will take the bar exam (and also turn 24, which is just unbelievable because I can’t figure out for the life of me how time has flown so quickly), I’ve been in run-eat-repeat mode for most of the month. But I’ve managed to squeeze in some potentially exciting (and tasty!) stuff nonetheless.

Run-Eat-Repeat for the NYRR Retro 4-Miler

Although Saturday morning was a bit grayer than I’d like, the sun came out to play in the afternoon and fortuitously kept on shining through Sunday morning, when I raced the NYRR Retro 4-Miler in Central Park for #4 in my 9+1 quest. Coming off the past week I felt pretty good going in, and since I wasn’t aiming to PR I just enjoyed myself with four easy miles.

The weekend kicked off Friday evening, when I went to Amber Sushi with my closest friend from law school. I had a toro chives roll with brown rice and some octopus and squid sashimi, and it was all delicious as usual. It was nice to catch up, especially since we are both in the thick of studying for the bar and it’s tough for other people to understand the weirdly consuming nature of this time.
