In a hurry...

This may date me but I’ll type it anyhow - my theme song should be that Alabama song that says,
“I'm in a hurry to get things done
Oh I rush and rush until life's no fun
All I really gotta do is live and die
But I'm in a hurry and don't know why…” 
Well, it hasn’t been fun for a few months…  school got the better of me, I cut back on training to the point I referred to myself as on pseudo-retirement, the company I worked for did  not win the new contract, and I gained 10+ pounds, to name a few.  Those of you who know me are probably thinking I could use the extra weight, but not for racing.  Imagine running a marathon with 10 pound weights = not fun!  Was all this self inflicted?  Partially… but no idea it would ever get this stressful.  Thinking optimistically, I did kick-butt presenting my research at the North American Brain Injury Society meeting in NOLA, passed my preliminary exams – although painfully, won a grant through the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, and rode on my husband’s new Harley for several hours without having a heart attack!  All-in-all, the past several months have been quite an experience and I am planning to update this more often.  Until next time – wish me luck!!!  I need it lately!

  1. I knew you had to be stressed but you always keep so quiet about it. We are missing you but glad to hear that you are getting so much done at school. New job is working out okay too, right? I heard your presentation was GREAT, we are so proud of you. Deep breath, it is going to be okay.
