Truth - If you have to be on a liquid diet for a day and a half, and you have to skip running for a day, and you have to be away from home, and you have to spend time in the hospital, and you have to endure unpleasant medical procedures (again!) - a giant banana flavored slurpee helps a little.
That was my facebook status yesterday afternoon. :)
I got in a 12 miler yesterday morning and then Josh and I got to Salt Lake late afternoon. We are headed to the hospital in an hour and then should be on our way home sweet home by dinner time. After a day and a half of nothing but liquids and a drug-induced "cleanse" I am feeling pretty exhausted, but I am looking forward to having this procedure over with and Josh has promised me gluten free/daily free pizza when I am free to eat again. The doctors at Huntsman are as good as it gets so I am grateful to have access to such quality health care.
There is TONS going on at home in the next couple of weeks. My bestest BFF Jennifer is coming from Florida on Sunday, my parents are coming from New York on Tuesday, Sadies is graduating high school on Thursday, Amanda turns 12 on Saturday, and then the last day of school for the rest of the kids is on June 6. In between now and the last day of school there are also about 612 concerts, plays, programs, meetings, ceremonies, etc. Lots of fun stuff and lots of excitement.
Running has been going really well. I have picked the mileage back up a bit this week and had an awesome tempo run on Tuesday. I am definitely feeling great and fully recovered from Providence. Fun things, exciting things, and big things ahead.
