SOLO and Back

Today ended up being an interesting day. The new front desk girl at work has strep throat and had to call out, so it was just my replacement and me. I ended up training her in the front desk job, as well as mine. I'd been training her for a week now. One of the coolest people ever, seriously. But right around 3pm, my boss calls her into his office and lets her go. Wtf. He told her she was learning too slowly. Meanwhile, he had already hired someone else. So now, I get to train another new person for the next week. It took a lot for me not to walk out right there (just like my two recent coworkers did), but I kept my cool and carried on, working my job and the front desk for the rest of the day. I can say that I am not very happy about having to start over with someone new tomorrow, though.
After work, I raced home to change into my running clothes and run up to SOLO for their monthly seminar so I could snag 2 CEUs. 3.6 miles 7:09/mi. Once again I showed up sweating like a pig with major stink, but one of my friends hugged me anyway. I'm sure he regretted that immediately after. Ha ha. Not long after the seminar began, my phone started blowing up with text messages, and since curiosity got the better of me, I had to look. The drama at the ambulance with the new schedule change had begun and people were getting word they were being let go. The saga is still unfolding, and I'm sure I will have more to share tomorrow.
So anyway, I decided to stop being rude and listen to the rest of the seminar talk, which was actually pretty interesting and always good to refresh on. After that, I hung around for about 10 minutes with a bunch of EMTs I know and have worked with. Funny that half of the conversation was about running, and I was the only one of the six of us who runs. I didn't even start the conversation. Ha ha.
It was time to run home, so I stepped outside into... snow, of course. It wasn't that bad, but I could hardly see anything except the snow flurries with my headlamp. 3.6 miles back at 6:50/mi (mostly downhill on the way back). 7.2 miles for the day. Good for a Wednesday. I'm up in about 6.5 hours, and I have no idea what my run will be. I guess I'll figure that out then.
