back in the saddle

So, I’ve been MIA for a while.  Lots of things have been going on… work, family, travel.  But, I’m trying to get back in the saddle – in several areas:

  • Work. I’m back to work after traveling for 2 weeks straight.  All the travel was work-related: three conferences in different cities.  I had three poster presentations and two oral presentations.  Since I’m on the job market, it was important to meet and talk to lots of people.  Thankfully, all went well, and I feel confident about my applications.
  • Running.  I have not been feeling up to running since my half-marathon during Labor Day weekend, but today was my first day back running.  I ran pretty slowly and walked some too.  I’m already feeling some aches and pain, but I have to start somewhere.  I hope to stick to the workout plan that J made for me, which includes 3 days of running 40 minutes + 20 minutes of strength (squats, pushups, etc.).

And last, but not least…

  • Baby. I’m back in the saddle when it come to BABY!!!  Yep, J and I are having Baby J #2!!  Here’s a peak 🙂

    Congrats on baby #2!!! That’s so exciting! You are quite an amazing woman, on the job market, working, already parenting one child, running, AND growing a new human being. May God bless you with a happy healthy pregnancy (and delivery) and a fantastic job!
