Word Diarrhea

Posted Oct 21 2008 6:20pm
I have so much to talk about and no solidarity of thought so this blog is yet another version of word diarrhea.

***My current life:



I have officially turned bum and moved back in with my parents. I'll be spending the next 3 months in Milwaukee. It's really, really nice to be back home for awhile. I've been in Cleveland for 8 years and my trips home have gotten less and less frequent over the years. Now I have a large block of time to have dinners with my parents, take my nephew to the movies, go to a Packer game with my brother, see the Badgers at homecoming and take a family vacation to Vegas. It's such a wonderful opportunity. While I'm here I'll be doing a self-made Sports Medicine elective with some highly talented surgeons in the area, and then will be flying around the country to INTERVIEW for December and January

***INTERVIEWING!



Yes, residency interviewing season is upon us. I will be applying to Emergency Medicine residency programs all over the country. My first stop is Orlando Florida, which I have, by complete coincidence, scheduled for the Tuesday after Clearwater. So.... I'm going to the HALF Ironman World Championships!!! Wooohoooo, it's the Ironman double. Which would be so much more impressive had I raced either one....

Anywho, I have interviews currently scheduled in Orlando, Las Vegas, Indianapolis, Nashville, Phoenix and Cleveland. I am EAGERLY awaiting hearing from programs in Davis, Tucson, Albuquerque, Denver and Charlotte. Come on, give a girl some love!

***Body image



Why is it that I am constantly battling this inflated image of my body size? I'm sure I'm not the only one out there, but being in Kona made me feel like a fat pig. This is not anything new to me because unless I am <115 pounds I feel huge. The weird thing is, whenever I see a pic of myself I think I'm fat, but then 6 months later I look at the same pic through a completely different lens. WTF??? Don't worry, as I told Paulo I don't have nearly enough will power to develop an eating disorder....

***They try to make me go to rehab, I said yes, yes yes!



I am officially on the full blown rehab trail for my shin problem that has been nagging me on my right leg. I took 2 weeks off running, have been doing core body strengthening and balance exercises and am now running 5 whole minutes every day (with a 55 minute elliptical warm-up). Watch out, though, next week it's moving up to 10. Hopefully the leg will cooperate because I really want to run the Vegas Half marathon in December

***More sports medicine blogs coming, I just need a little bit of motivation and time. Thanks for all the comments on the Kona blogs!
