Have you ever been in one of those meetings where someone has the great "get to know you" idea of having everyone tell something about themselves that no one else knows? *crickets* This has happened to me twice in the past few weeks. I tend to freeze up whenever I hear that. Think of something witty and interesting on the spot? Panic time. I don't ever feel like I have something good to say. I'm sure there are a lot of things that people don't know about me, but I don't necessarily want to share them in a work setting. Of course, my mind always blanks when I'm put on the spot like that anyway. So, instead of coming off as the hilarious and charming person that I know I am, I come off as boring and lame. Sigh. I need to write a couple things down so I have them available to pull out at times like those or I need to go back and read this post.
I need to thank everyone who commented on Monday's post about my race. I was being unnecessarily hard on myself and I just need to step up and be proud of my accomplishments. That is tough for me. I have this weird feeling of just not being good enough. I'm working on it, but it is slow going. This is where therapy would come in handy, but what is blogging if not your own form of therapy? Anyway, thank you so much for all the encouraging words, they really meant a lot.

Anyone have good "get to know you" stories I can borrow?
