Land of the Midnight Sun!

Monday, June 08, 2009

Hey everyone!

Thank you so much for your lovely wishes for our trip. I can not even begin to describe how breath-takingly beautiful Alaska is! We went to visit my parents and were surrounded by glaciers, ice-capped mountains, bumpy roads, moose, mosquitoes, bald eagles and the freshest air of my life. The people I ran into were sweet as molasses. What a rare and wonderful opportunity I was given....and boy did I enjoy it! We had so many beautiful memories with my parents...lots of laughs and silliness. Somehow I forgot about work and everything for one whole week...that constitutes a successful vacation to me! I sure feel lucky to have had this experience.

To Alaska!

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Yes indeedy! I am leaving for Alaska tomorrow to visit family. This will be my first visit to "Seward's Folly" and I am feeling quite jolly. I will ruin all of my super-long spark streaks that I have had going since January, but oh well! I hope to come back with lots of cool pictures for you guys!

Stoic Endurance....

Friday, May 22, 2009

Hey Everyone....

Sorry for the long silence on the blog front. I have been holding out for a medical school to knock down my door and then I would be able to post a super happy blog. Don't worry, this is still a happy blog.

I am currently on 4 waiting lists at various schools and waiting is just what I am doing. I still have 4 shots at getting into medical school this fall. I have just stared the process over again and have started my application for the fall of 2010. What a process it is with transcripts, letters of recommendation, essays, deadlines, fees here, fees there and fees everywhere. I predict that I will spend all the money to reapply for 2010 and then I will be accepted for 2009. That would be the best case scenario.

I am keeping my head up and holding on tight. Eventually I will get this!

Back in the Saddle...and tales of Lake Edna.

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

So I survived my very first spinning class last night. One solid hour of leg-pumping good fun! As a runner, I am generally a little over-confident that exercise courses will not be challenging for some reason. I was greatly mistaken and pleasantly surprised. We stood up, sat back in the saddle, sprinted, went up hills, went back down and had a tremendous time. The other members of the class were well prepared with a towel wrapped on their handle bars. I, on the other hand, sweat like a water fall and created a nice little "Lake Edna" around the perimeter of my bike. I didn't know my body had that much water in it?! I would definitely recommend this crazy idea of "working so hard not to go anywhere" to anyone looking for a new twist for their exercise routine..

    Hi Keelin, I had to look up spinning. I had heard of it before but didn't know exactly what it consisted of. It sounds like you can burn a lot of calories in a short time and is great for toning. This sounds like something I would like to try down the road. Glad you had fun with it. Stay pumped!

Longest Run this year!

Monday, March 09, 2009

I got together with my super distance running friend this weekend and blew through a 22 mile run. The weather was absolutely perfect and the tow path in Georgetown was picturesque. What a great run. I was unbelievably hungry by about mile 12 and we went to a really hip mexican restaurant afterwards. I feel just great.
