Dear Shriners Hospital for Children, today I start shadowing a doctor there and I'm pretty dang excited about it. I promise not to get in the way or ask too many questions. Dear Fueled by Fine Wine Half Marathon, last night I hit submit on the registration form before I talked myself out of it. Looks like we have a date on July 15th and I'm pretty excited about it given those amazing pictures above of the race :) Dear spider that was the size of my hand that I killed this morning, sorry for screaming while I killed you. Kind of. Don't come into my house next time. Sick. Dear readers, you're going to see some changes around this ol' blog here in regards to the I WILL RUN stuff and sponsorships. Since I'm no longer running for a set cause, sponsorships may be going away unless I can find another cause to give the proceeds to. Stay tuned! Or better yet, if you know of a great cause that needs some funds, shoot me an email! Dear week five of spring term, today is the last day of this exam-filled week. Thank goodness because coming back from running a half marathon to this craziness was not fun, or productive on my part. Dear my awesome running legs, you're holding up quite well considering we ran a half marathon on Sunday and only took two days off before getting back at the running thing. Don't give up on me now! Dear readers (again), here's a cool article in Runner's World about the Fueled by Fine Wine half marathon: A Vintage Run. Any race that makes Runner's World is worthy of my money for a registration fee. Any local Oregonians want to join me?
