Other Band Director: "Bye, I'll see you tomorrow."
I get home, change into my old worn out and beat up sweatpants, and post my final Facebook status update ever...also reminded myself that there's over $250 waiting at the end of this horrible miserable journey
Leave to go run
Find the most secluded track in town and get out to walk
Begin walking for 5 minutes
Begin first 3-minute run
Let's try this again...
Stop running, resume walking, resume gasping for breath
I can run some more...let's give it one last push!
