I have loved the race reports! I can't imagine finishing an Oly tri, and am so impressed! And CherylAnn, following behind one of your children completing a tri is so inspiring!

I've been running away - last week was a step back week and I ran just 9 miles on Sat. Last night, I was ready to go for a short recovery run but ended up having to go to the hospital to admit someone. I decided to still try to squeeze in the run, so had dh drop me at the hospital. I admitted my patient, changed into running clothes, and ran home in the dark (3 miles.) Running in the dark turns out to be a good speed workout method for me! Tonight, I ran 3.5 while Justin ran with the summer kids' running group. He's so proud of himself for getting better endurance and faster this summer. I ran with another jog stroller mom (who is much faster than me, but was looking to do an easy run) and it was a good time. I'm planning 14 for Sat. My labor nurse friend and I are going to drive to the Team in Training group run to do the 14. They are only doing 10, but she and I will do 10 with them and then another 4. At least this way, 10 will be supported with water, gatorade, and cheering support along the way.

I've been fairly down since Sat when I sat down with my partners to discuss how we are going to cover call with the 4th partner leaving. I'm going to have to cancel my trip to San Diego in Sept. I was planning to attend the Amer. Academy of Family Physicians annual meeting, and was meeting my best friend and a couple other friends from residency there. Unfortunately, all 3 of us remaining partners had planned to be gone that week with the 4th covering, and with him gone, someone has to cancel. I was the only one traveling alone, so the logical one to cancel. I'm not really mad at my partners, but just aggravated at the whole situation. I don't get that much time away, you know? I told them today, though, what I wanted for a consolation prize. The weekend I was planning to go is the weekend the last 20 miler before the marathon should be. I originally planned to run it alone on Monday after I returned home. Since I have to cancel, I'm going to close our clinic that Sat so I can go and run that 20 with the group as a supported run. I figure I should get some consolation out of having to cover the whole practice for a week and missing my trip!

I've been consoling myself with a chick flick marathon with my older dd. We saw Mamma Mia yesterday in the theater, then rented Step Up 2 last night. Tonight was Dirty Dancing (the original movie.) Oh my word, younger Patrick Swayze dancing without a shirt! I think my dd was embarrassed to be seen with me . . .

Gaye, loved your race report!!!

Dr.Jen That's so frustrating. How long do you think it will take to hire another doc?

Megs and Plady!!! Yoohoo!!! Guess what? We canceled our Vegas trip because we need to not spend the money. That means that I'll get to go to Megs' event and that I can house as many of you as want to stay with me. Keep in mind that I'm 45 minutes from Wenatchee (I'm not sure how far from the event...probably less than 45 minutes). So, I'm putting the event on my calendar and I'm really excited!

Great report, Gaye! I've been so looking forward to reading about your race. You've given me renewed hope that I can do it too . Megs, you're next on the Oly Tri train!!!! So, which one of us is stepping up next season for the Half-Iron !!!!!

Dr. Jen, that sounds so frustrating, but I think your "consolation prize" is a good compromise. Hope your practice finds another good, like-minded doctor soon .

CherylAnn ~ sorry your trip to vegas got cancelled, but WOOO HOO for another dingomeet!

Last night I got to try out the wetsuit I'm borrowing for my tri. Dang, that thing is tough to get on, but once it's in place, watch out! I finished 100m free in the wetsuit in 1:40 ~ unheard of fast for me! The buoyancy just puts your body in the right position for flying through the water. Amazing! Of course, my swim got cut way short because I spent the majority of the time cramming my body into neoprene and then gabbing with the woman who is loaning it to me, but I'm glad to have that issue worked out. Apparently, Lake Michigan is kind of nippy, even in August.

DH has been gone 10 days now, and 10 more to go . Halfway there!

~~Kristina~~ Mama to DS(10/30/01), DD1(VBAC 3/28/04) and DD2(HBAC 5/21/06)

I love watching chick flicks with my 8yo.. though I have to be selective and make sure teh language is okay and that there are no sex scenes, LOL. But I can not wait until all 3 are a little older, and when dh is traveling, the 4 of us can snuggle together and watch movies like that. fun fun!!!!

You may have to add me to the list of dingoes with family drama. DH got a call yesterday from his brother. Seems his wife was in town and stopped by to see my MIL over the weekend (first time since Christmas) . Very concerned about MIL's weight loss, but doesn't say anything to her or ask any questions.

The phone call to us was asking DH and specifically me ('cause I'm a nurse) to go check on her and give them a call afterwards to report on what I think may be going on.

Nice discussion about all this with DH, but we have a pretty good idea what's going on. MIL is 80 y/o, has smoked for more than 50 years, has heart problems, and high blood pressure (that we know of). She also has worked in physician offices as a biller for many years, so knows enough about medical conditions.
My SIL ( who quit nursing school 2 credits short of graduation) lives with her and another one is over visiting every day. I strongly suspect that MIL has lung cancer and she knows it and either had it confirmed or is hoping that not getting it confirmed means it isn't real. Everyone else seems unconcerned or in denial.
We see MIL every few weeks and talk with her weekly. She has always been a warm and welcoming person, but there are just things that you don't discuss outside your very immediate family. DIL's are not very immediate family.

My BIL is going to want her to go to the doctor to get something confirmed and to do something. My feeling is that even if we do that, what will it change. Most of the time when someone goes to the doctor to rule out a terminal illness, they already have a pretty good idea of what's going on. Amateur psychologist part of me thinks he feels guilty for all the time he spent with his wife's family where they live and not enough time with his mom in the last 30 years.

The only advantage I see, is if she has cancer, to encourage hospice care so she can remain comfortable and use the social services/ grief services to help her and her kids say goodbye.

I need to go visit anyway to take her some veggies from the garden, but I feel like skipping all the covert activity and just asking her outright.

tjsmama - awesome RR!!! What a great race and time!!!

CherylAnn - I loved your RR too! WTG to you and your DD!!!

mothercat - that sounds like a tough situation!

DrJen - that is so frustrating, but I'm glad you'll be able to take off for the 20 miler, that one is a lot easier w/ a group!!

: Jennie!! (I love the facebook birthday notices )

RR: 3 miles done this AM

NRR: I went to the doc yesterday, and she didn't seem to think there was anything wrong w/ having irregular, 50 day cycles, and painful ovulation/wacky periods.... (HBM - she said it is common to have very different cycles after each pregnancy, but couldn't explain to me why ovulation was so bad now...) and basically said I should just go on BCP to 'make it all go away' No offense to the wonderful medical professionals among the dingos, but I hate going to the doctor. I wish they would just try to treat me like an intelligent person and explain things, instead of waving their hands to 'make it all go away' :

Callie - that's frustrating.

i just came back from the dr myself, ekg was fine and all the bloodwork they did came back fine as well (at least as inspected by the doc on staff who is not my normal doc). it's just frustrating as i'm tired of not feeling right. sigh.

mothercat - i would just ask her outright, she may not answer you truthfully or fully and there's not much you can do.

back to work.

ditto Mandy on talking to MIL. I'm no good at playing games and would just ask out right. She has less to protect in telling you as well. It would be harder to tell your son or daughter that you have cancer, KWIM?

Mandy - I hope you can figure it out.

Gaye that is just awesome! WELL DONE!!

DrJen - having met your older dd now I can just picture her reaction to your drools over young Patrick Swayze. Gave me a good tickle.

So does anyone have a 5-7 y.o. that would like to be a pen pal with my dd? That will stick with it? She was writing to her cousin (14) and she was answering but she just quit and dd's really disappointed. So I thought if she could find someone else to write back and forth with...Well I do the writing, she dictates.

Add me to the list of just returned from doctor. Had my visit with the rheumatologist and it went well. He seemed fine, talked a LOT of jargon that I couldn't keep up with. He told me I am "healthy as a horse". His first impression is that it is NOT Lupus. Had ELEVEN viles of blood drawn and a pee test. Wait for results now and keep hoping and praying for the best.

RR: dh got on the TM again today. Dr. talked "running" with me and told me to "KEEP RUNNING and exercising" !!! Said I didn't look that tan for all the running I do, which then I explained by the fact that most of it is on the TM.

Overall, very : about how things went and will wait patiently now for more test results.

RR: Yesterday's run for all the families needing peace and love went great. Four miles and some weights, PT exercises, and some abs.

Thanks for the run for me and all the hugs, I sure felt the !!!

Yay for the positive dr reports for Lisa and Mandy. I was worried about you two. Callie, : I hope you can find some answers.

I'm nearly packed up for 3 weeks in CA. I went and bought DS his own suitcase. When we went up to check on him last night, we discovered he'd gone into my room where I'd packed DD's suitcase, brought it into his room, and fell asleep cuddling it. Since I had enough suitcase space to have him packed into a smaller bag, I went ahead and got him his very own cheepo rolling suitcase. My kids are beyond excited for the trip!

Today was DD's last day at her school, and she's pretty sad. We brought a gift for her classroom (a sign language book for kids), and the teachers had her sign her name in the cover so they could always remember where it came from. Those teachers really know how to make my DD feel special. : We're all going to miss them.

Last night DD went to the library to hand in her completed summer reading form. Good thing they had an "overflow" card! She got more cheap crap to take home. Thankfully, this toy broke before we left the library, so it didn't even have to come home. Anyone heard of a summer reading program that doesn't motivate with dumb, cheap toys?

Just wanted to report a 20 mile ride (17.0mph) and a 5K run brick. Felt great, especially the run which I did in a torrential downpour ! I love running in the rain. And I'm halfway through DH's trip ~ only 10 more days to go.

My evening went something like this:
smooth bath time, quick story time, dad's putting in bed tonight, zip down to my computer open my email. Read email that my coauthor on a paper doesn't agree with about 70% of my work. Hear dh scream "KRISTIN". (which I can barely hear over his bad music he has on in the living room).

Run upstairs, he's decided to extracate a splinter from dd2's foot about 25 seconds before saying goodnight. Hello? WTF are you doing? She'd just had a bath and it wasn't budging. (in fact we didn't even know about it until she put her foot up after Erik kissed her goodnight).

argh.
Go for a run with her in the jogger. Thank goodness she's a nice passenger. But I.am.out.of.shape except for sitting in front of a computer. Which it looks like I'll be doing a lot more of in the coming months than I had hoped. grrr.

Kristin - ugh. that sucks.

reporting a nice mtn bike ride tonight. i feel great right now and i'm riding well except for the heart thing. the heart thing is totally wrecking my climbing ability. on thursday i'll do a Holter Monitor which i will wear for 24 hours and during some exercise so someone can see exactly what is happening. One of my friends thought proposed that maybe it's stress, and maybe it is. maybe i just need to take it easy a little bit.

cyril dessel - todays stage winner of the tour de france. what a cutie! is anyone watching the tour? did you see the guy go off the side today? WOW!

Good news from most of you on the health front!

Mandy, I hope the Holter gives you some answers.

Kristin, Any chance your coauthor can be convinced? That's really not fun. Do you really need a coauthor?

We're leaving for a mini-road trip tomorrow to see family (have I already mentioned this a million times?).

Megs, Dh told me tonight that he wants to do the same tri you are doing. It's an Olympic, right? Duroga State Park? We're about the same distance from the park that Wenatchee is, give or take a mile or two. A young friend of mine has a showing of a one act musical that he wrote in Wenatchee that weekend that I was bummed to have to miss, so it turns out that canceling Vegas was a good thing for several reasons.

: Hi Dingos!

I've been reading along to keep up, but busy and struggling some with running. Do any of our PT geniuses have iliopsoas advice? I am 100% certain most of the inflammation and trouble is the sartorius, by the path of the pain over the past two weeks. I have iced and have been doing ibuprofen, trying to stretch as much as I can, and have hugely reduced my mileage. My only real exercise options are running and walking for cardio. Now what? Everything I read says LOTS of time off. Thing is, I know I can get the pain to go away once I am into the activity, so it's tempting to fight through the first mile and just run anyway.

Advice? Remember, no health club membership, pool access, bicycling, or any equipment besides a TM...very limited time...and not enough self-control to control my weight without running. HELP!

On other fronts, my raise was really lame in spite of a really good review, but work has been OK and I was selected for jury duty this week. Nothing came to trial, so I'll probably be on again for next week, but won't find out until a letter confirms. Dh leaves for Africa in 2 weeks and we have not even started dealing with that shopping and logistical mess. I may have to cancel the vacation time I planned for while he's gone because a colleague has a family situation he needs to handle out of state. I want so badly to just be home working on stories these days.

Sorry to be a downer...on the bright side, the weather is gorgeous.

Our internet service is finally back up! : I didn't realize how much I rely on it.

We're having major drama at my house and I'm trying to remain calm about it. DH still hasn't found a job--it's been 6 months--so now he's considering returning to law school and specializing. That means I would have to return to work full-time, which I don't think I mind but I'm not sure. Anyway, there are urgent meetings scheduled with deans next week, my resume has been dusted off and polished, and we'll see where this ride takes us.

rr~I almost pooped myself on my run this morning. : Sorry to be blunt but there's no way to sugar coat what happened out there. It was traumatic!! Details are on my blog for the iron stomachs out there.
