( 8:33 AM ) teahouse
My firm is running the Corporate Challenge tonight. 3.5 mile race in Central Park. Top 2 male and top 2 female finishers on each team have their times submitted. Teams with the fastest times get to go to the championships.
My firm has been in the championships for the last 4 years running. But this past year, we lost 3 of our fastest female runners.
Therefore, slow old me may actually be one of the fastest women at the firm now. Sad, I know, considering how slow I am.
The partner I've been working for this week has been cracking the whip (hence the spotty posting).
What's worse, he's also one of the fastest runners at the firm.
So on top of hearing him tell me what to do at work, I have to hear him say things like, "Well, I hope you're ready to run fast tomorrow night..we're counting on you..."
I can't take the pressure! #
