I'm BACK

Ok, so surgery is officially over. I have mixed feelings about that. I am convinced that I can finally tell people I know what I want to be when I grow up. And I'll miss it dearly... but the 100 hour weeks I can live without for awhile. So now I'm on family medicine... strict 9-5 M-F with half days on Wednesday. Tough life!

Yesterday I got back in the water and I think that I just might have caught the tri-bug again. It was one humbling experience though, let me tell you. Now I just have to see if I can run. I did a step aerobics class (no heckling from the peanut gallery...) on Saturday with no pain so I think I'm going to hit the treadmill this week. If all goes well I need to pick a 70.3 for next year. Unfortunately Eagleman is closed already. WTF????? So it will probably be Musselman.

Randomness...

My computer is totally FUBARed. It was completely unresponsive for 5 days and now it is deciding that it will turn on again. (it just MIGHT have something to do with the glass of water I dumped on it last year. I can't be trusted with nice things) I went 3 days without checking my email which is a new record for me. So instead of buying a new road bike, my sites are set on a new laptop. I have seen the light, and it is good:



I'm leaving the darkside of Dell laptops (which should really only be used as glorified paperweights. I mean what freaking genius designed the intake for the fan on the bottom of the computer???), and joining the ranks of Apple converts. I can't wait!

I'll be back soon and often to update this month. But I want to give a quick note of congratulations to Charlie for finishing IMUK strong with a huge negative split on the run. Way to go Charlie! Can't wait for the race report.

And the next blog will be a tribute to a good friend who has a little race coming up on Sunday. As we speak, I bet he's carb loading and getting into the freaking zone...

Glad to hear things are slowing down for you! Don't think there is a tri bike in my future...I just priced day care. O. M. G. Don't have kids. ha ha

My HP has fans on the bottom - I have already lost a hard drive to overheating! I'm totally getting a Mac next time - same size without sounding like I am in a wind tunnel!

Also, I suck majorly at step aerobics.

9-5 doctors?? Who knew? Sounds like your heart is in surgery, though.

I'm sure you'll find a good 70.3 to do, there are a ton of them out there now.

Glad you're back. We've missed you, even though you were very good about keeping us up to speed with your fantastically busy surgery rotation.

I loved step aerobics in college! Glad you are going to be getting more sleep now and are feeling up to working out etc.

Come to the Mac side! You can start putting a "i" in front of every peripheral you purchase!

Good to ehar you're feeling mended: I'll never forget my first 30 mn run after my ITB healed. I felt like I was running on cloud 9.

That's funny. You say surgery, and I'm like, "Jodi had surgery? I hope she's ok!" Then I remember, Oh yeah--medical school. Ha ha. Glad it wasn't you getting the surgery.

Welcome back smurfette :)

First, I too was mad that Eagleman was sold out already. I did email the RD to see if I can get in. try it, it is always worth a shot!

I have a MacBookPro and I absoulutly love it! More than enough power and I can run both windows and mac. The best of both worlds.
