ALLLLLLLLLLLmost Friday :)

Somehow I managed to survive yet another week of my life. Don't ask me how I did it..haha.

I'm going to be running a 10k on Saturday. Hopefully the weather holds up. It will be my first 10 k ever.....maybe I'll do my first 5k after that. Funny how I started at the half marathon distance eh? haha.

Going swimming tomorrow.....teaching my friend how to swim that wants to do tri's with me this summer. Aughta be interesting...she said she doesn't put her head under the water. It's a good thing I coached and taught swimming for 8 years. One catch....I haven't really swam since I got 6 screws drilled in my shoulder about a year and a half ago. This should be really interesting to watch....a rusty one armed fish teach someone whos scared to put their head under water. You want some free entertainment...head over to the Chatham County Aquatics Center. Which brings me to my next point....found out we have this HUGE amazing aquatics center here in town and if you are a student its $3 to go! WHY DIDNT I KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!? CHeck out the pics!!

Also getting my bike fixed this weekend. Somehow I got a flat....noooooooo idea. Could be that im stupid and don't know how to work the presta valves. Either way...the nice folks at the bike shop will hook me up and I'll be on wheels again :O) Other than that....took care of a patient that fell through a glass curio cabinet. Completely slit her wrist in half..when the surgeon took the stitches out (that the stupid ER docs put in) they pulled out a glas s piece larger than a quarter....eeeek! I eagerly watched as the surgeon diligently repaired 5 tendons and ligaments and numerous nerves in this poor girls hand. careful! Glad when I tripped over that chain fence that there wasn't a glass curio cabinet sitting there!!! :) Happy Weekend ya'll!

Hi Baby,

Hi Christine

You are going to love the 10k. It is a nice distance because you get to go fast, yet it is not so long that you think to yourself "is this ever going to end??". Pacing will still be important and you don't want to go out to fast.. but run how you feel and you will be just fine.

Best of luck:-)
