More Time To Run?

Yesterday, I was informed that due to a financial shortfall, my company needed to reduce headcount.

I am now unemployed.

I am hopeful that this will be short-term, meaning that I will find another job, it is certain I will not return to my former company.

While I am in search of a new job, I no longer will be waking up at the crack of dawn to get my miles in.

I had six miles scheduled for yesterday. My plan was to run when I got home from work. Honestly, by the time I got home, I just didn't have it in me. The plan was to make those miles up today.

I spent a lot of my day reaching out to people I know in my industry, explaining my current situation and asking them to keep me in mind if anything came up.

While I know a run would make me feel so much better, I just haven't been able to get my clothes changed and do it.

Tomorrow is another day. I have speedwork on my schedule and I plan on getting it in before lunch.

If anyone out there in the blogosphere knows of any email marketing positions, let me know.
