I was going to run but was going to wait to see if Sawyer wanted to come, an hour later and Sawyer and I were both like mehhhh so we didn't end up going. It's very snowy and we were both tired so motivation was low

Ran with Sawyer, we did a loop out kinda towards Nature Park because our only option for running outside was to run in the road, it snowed a TON today. And the roads in Rexburg aren't ever plowed well haha soooo sidewalks are definitely a no go. We were going to go to the gym and run inside or something but I had work and didn't have enough time for that.

Ran with Sawyer, it was a bit of a mess haha. There is so much snow here and the sidewalks aren't ever clear, so it consisted of running in the road which aren't plowed well either. There's always still a good 2-3 inches of snow leftover. Anyways, we were planning on going 5-6 but yeah... conditions just weren't great. On the plus side we got steeplechase practice from all the snow mounds, some were taller than us lol

Ran laps on the indoor track in the I-center. Haha, it was a good time. My roommate Cat sent me 42 messages in the span of 15 minutes, I hadn't told her I was going running with Sawyer and she was wondering where I was... we were going laser tagging later in the evening and she was like SARAH WHERE ARE YOU haha she's pretty great. Laser tagging was a blast, good to be back with our friends from last semester

On a more serious note, I'm trying to get in to see a neurologist in Idaho Falls. My short term memory loss is still prevalent and it's concerning. Now that it's been so long since ECT treatments we know it can't be just that, and it can no longer be explained by fetal alcohol syndrome because of how extreme my memory loss was during ECT. My mom is wondering if there's something else going on. I'm really nervous and hope that we can figure this out, it's been pretty difficult to consider something more serious could be going on but my mom says not to panic, there are things we can do it may not be an underlying condition I may just need to adjust my diet or something to help improve memory. But it's best to know for sure. My mom says they'd be willing to pay for an MRI or anything I need to figure this out, so that takes a lot of the stress off. I just hope everything's okay.

Wow I've been slacking. I'm going to put in a better effort to run every day even if it's cold. Today was actually nice, 37 degrees. The snow has started to melt so the sidewalks were pretty clear. It felt nice to get out and run, although I'm feeling the time off.

Things have been kind of crazy this semester. I've been focused more on studies, career options, work and future plans than I have on running. Which is natural, just an adjustment from last year. No longer being a collegiate athlete has changed my priorities, which I think is a good thing because now I'm not so focused on my athletic performance, it's not what's paying for my school anymore so it's something I get to do when I want to. It's also really good for me to develop a solid plan for the future and do some adulting haha. It's really cool to see everything come together. I wouldn't have guessed I'd be where I am today, but I'm really glad that I am.

Sawyer and I are still planning on getting married :) We're trying to figure out when that'll be. Our original plan of April is now more complicated, so our options are either May or August. It'll most likely be May, I think it'll work out best that way. Sawyer is thinking about taking a job in D.C. this summer, so depending on how he feels about the job (he's meeting with the head of sales this week) we could potentially get married in May then move to D.C. for the summer, then come back to Rexburg for school in the fall. Either that or we'll have to do a long-distance engagement, or both stay and work in Rexburg this summer. We're leaning towards May and DC though.

Sawyer called me this evening and said he was going for a 13 miler, I foolishly asked if I could come haha. So we met up, started the loop which goes up past the temple. After a mile I was feeling it, we quickly realized today was not going to be a long run day. Once the sun set it was frigid, and second time around spaghetti doesn't taste too great haha. It was super icy and snowy. Anywho, maybe next time we'll make it the full thing if I prepare for it and don't do it on a whim
