Squeezed in a Run

I can't believe how incredibly swamped I am. I can't seem to get ahead. I have to give lab meeting tomorrow (again--got suckered into it), and it's taken up ALL my time.

At 6:00, I made myself stop, change, and head out the door for a nice, gentle 4-mile run. Ah, the gorgeous sun setting over the Pacific as I ran along Torrey Pines. The smell of freshly cut grass emanating from the Torrey Pines Golf course. Do I actually live here? I'm glad I made myself do it. If I can just do a little something every day.

Now, back to work....Anyone want to hear about ApoAI, HDL, and reverse cholesterol transport?

I'd love to hear about reverse cholesterol transport :)

I did a journal club on the same topic a couple years ago.

For me- Thesis committee meeting Thursday. Oh, joy.

It sounds like such a beautiful place to live the way you describe it!

Running during stressful times is a necessity. All it takes is strapping on those shoes and heading out the door...and it sounds like "out the door" for you is paradise!
