T-Minus 9 Days and Counting...

To any of you out there who are still reading my pretty much dead running blog... I wanted to check in. Nothing has really been happening on the running front.

All energies are being pumped into studying for the big one. 9 days until I take it - so lots of reading and writing going on. I did fit in an awesome trip to Joshua Tree. Went with a crew of friends and of course the Christmas hamster - Daysi Rose Pretty Pretty Princess (Lily died - it was very sad) (Daysi got her name from my 5 year old niece who really likes to name things ;)). As soon as I am done with all this I will write a more detailed report! Until then, I miss reading all of you and I hope you are all doing well.

Can't wait to chill and read up on everyone when I can!!

Week 5 Update

January went by so fast!

I have been a bit MIA because we have had an influx of kids calling in to participate in the research study. Many of them are homeless so that means lots of driving on my end to get to them for the interview.  Man working with these kids really pulls on my heart.. I just want to take them all home with me. :(

Studying is going mostly okay. The time is drawing near.. March 4, 5, 6 ,7, and 17. Yikes. I am a bit behind because of all the assessments so I am taking this week to catch back up on that. 

I got some good runs in last week which was great. I am house sitting in Pasadena watching 2 dogs and 3 cats at the moment. Dogs are great... they make such fun running partners. Near the house I am watching is are some great trails in Eaton Canyon so I have been running there lately whenever I get the chance. 

I really missed reading up on everyones blogs.. It looks like everyone was super busy running and working!! So inspirational! You are all so awesome!

Below are some pictures I snapped of Ebert in Eaton Canyon. :)

Aww this makes me want a dog of my own. :)

This the "waterfall" trail

Trail we came up to get to the top.
