4/9/2009 New Outlook!!


Alright, so the last few days have brought a total of 15 miles or so out on 1585. I'm feeling strong and ready to go. I plan on running another 10 miler tomorrow, wind-allowing, and then taper from there. I'm looking forward to the completion of Rocky Hill and then a couple of months of no racing. It'll be good to just rest without having to worry about getting ready for another long distance.
Ok, so in other news, I just found out yesterday that I got the new job that I put in for!! I am really excited about it! It'll introduce me to a whole new world of my profession. I am the new Case Manager for MICU/SICU!! My hours will be more "normal", being 8 to 5, Monday thru Friday, and I will have more flexibility as well. I will be so glad to finally get out of the ER! After almost 13 years it has really taken a toll on me. I am ready to settle in to something new and exciting! I'll keep ya posted as to how it's going. I won't start for a couple of weeks yet but I AM READY!! Peace!

Congratulations man. 13 years in the ER, whew there's an endurance award somewhere for something like that. Get that puppy done and get some rest, you've earned it.

Mark, good job at getting to the last race in the Texas 50 Mile Grandslam Series. I know you will do well. Also that is great news on the job front. I look forward to running with you in a couple of weeks on that that steep, hilly, rocky 1585 course...oh wait...this is Lubbock...sorry flat, windblown, sandy course;-)
