10 Cities in 15 nights....

So there really is a reason that I've been so sparse around here. It's mid-interview season and I'm traveling around the country like a woman possessed. Last week after returning from Vegas I spent a couple nights in Cleveland, one in Indianapolis one in Nashville and one in Louisville. This week is Phoenix, Tucson, Albuquerque, Chicago then off to the Big Apple (but that is for fun!). The interviews are going really well but I'm starting to get tired of being "on" all the time. When I picked up my car today in Phoenix and started heading to the hotel room a migraine aura smacked me in the face. So I'm sitting in my room hiding from the headache. I think I may have foiled it with a couple aleve and a big cup of coffee. Unfortunately not a good combo for a girl with an ulcer, but at the moment I'll take a tummy ache over a migraine, so it's all good.

All the traveling has made me feel like an out of shape chubster. On the bright side, I'm injury free and running with no problems. Riding only when I'm in Cleveland and no swimming in over a month though. Things have to turn around soon if I want a successful 2009 racing season. I'm not worried though, since I should have tons of time to train soon.

I am also way behind on my Christmas shopping and my apartment will likely be condemned by the health department before too long. Traveling is a lot of fun, but it will be nice to spend more than 2 straight days in home sweet home!


Here are some pics from Vegas. My cousin and Dad both rocked the half marathon. I decided to sit it out because I didn't think it was worth aggravating the shin. I can run an hour with no pain, but just too afraid to push it right now. Hope everyone is doing well and excited for the holidays!
