Mileage Monday

Running stats for the week of August 25th  - August 31st... Yay! I ran 5 miles straight this week pain free! It was great! My heart and lungs felt like I could have gone forever, but I know I have to keep increasing my mileage slowly to ensure I don't hurt myself. And believe me... the last thing I want to do is have that knee pain come back. It is surreal to run this far again when I could hardly walk a few months ago. YAY!

Mileage Monday

Running stats for the week of August 18th - August 24th... This was a slow week running wise. I just never got the energy to get out there and do it. Even my total steps for each day were lower than normal. I'm hoping that even though it's the end of the month, and things are going to be getting very busy, that I can get myself back into the groove and hit 5 miles. Its been a long long long time since I ran that far. I will probably be in need of a good run for stress relief since I'm starting my last class this week... for the second time and (cough, cough) I'm turning the big 3-0! Gahhhhhhhhh!

Add It To My Job Description

Resident: "I need help!"
Me: "What happened... are you okay?"
Resident: "Yes, but there was an accident!"
Me: "Tell me what happened?"
Resident: "A bird flew into the window... I believe it's dead..."

We proceed to walk outside to take a look...

Sure enough, a sweet little sparrow had flown straight into the window and broken it's neck.

I gently picked it up and placed it in a ziplock bag...


Me and the residents had a little funeral for the unlucky fella.

Just add funeral director to my job description.

I sure didn't think I would be doing that today!!!

Mileage Monday

Running stats for the week of August 11th - 17th... it was a hectic but most of all an incredibly sad past week for me. I was thankful that there was a lot of things going on to keep my mind off the loss of a very close friend. Early on Wednesday morning my phone started blowing up with phone calls and text messages from some of my past UIndy co-workers. I was shocked to hear that a very close friend of mine was killed in a tragic car accident late that evening.  Here is the news story - http://www.wthr.com/story/26265606/2014/08/12/serious-crash-on-i-65-on-south-side-of-indianapolis. Words can't even begin to express the range of emotions and questions that have gone through my mind this week. I will miss her everyday and a void will be in my heart for a lifetime. The times that I was able to run was a little bit of therapy for me to reflect on life and my times with such a wonderful lady.
