nor cal

I flew up last night after a hectic day in lab. It figures that lab would get crazy right as I'm going out of town. I'm in the middle of starting up a pilot study, being trained for a huge upcoming study, genotyping, writing an animal protocol, and getting ready for my first lab meeting presentation in this lab on Tuesday. Ack! And I don't know what the hell I'm doing, which doesn't really help.

Needless to say, I've felt kind of frazzled. My mom and I made an emergency run to the food store to load up on ice cream and chocolate. Hey, it's my carbo-loading, okay? She mentioned that people would think we had a bad case of the munchies. Ha ha.

This morning, my dad took me to his gym so I could use the pool. It was a short, crowded pool but I got my laps in, and it felt good to swim. I worked on swimming long as practice for the upcoming International Triathlon in June.

We're about to drive up to San Fran for the Bay to Breakers tomorrow. I'm psyched. My foot and knee are feeling great. I might actually break away from my dad and my sister when the crowd thins out and run a bit to practice my long run for the International Tri. It's 7.5 miles so that'll be perfect. I can't wait to see all the crazy costumes! Should be an interesting race report.

How was BTB? My sister in law did it and really enjoyed herself. I cannot wait to read your race report. I hope you enjoyed that ice cream, it sounds like you really needed the break.
