A few updates...the beginning of a big adventure!

Hello, again. It's been six weeks since the Boston Marathon, and yet it feels like it has been much longer! I didn't think I would necessarily continue blogging, but then I realized that I am going to be away for the next 6 weeks and that keeping a blog was a way for me to keep in touch! So, here we go again. Shockingly, I am not starting to train for Boston 2010 right now... so you won't be reading much about that training for quite some time. My next bout of marathon training will probably start at the end of July and will be in preparation for either NYC or Maine. For now, I am headed off on a big adventure for the first half of the summer, and I feel like I will have plenty of updates along those lines!

In the past few weeks, I have made some big decisions. I am officially going to the University of Vermont for medical school, moving up to Burlington in the beginning of August. I have a condo and already moved my big furniture up there with my mom. Slowly, I will be transitioning out of Boston. I stopped working about a month ago (May 1 ) and have been enjoying my time off. My days consist of the Today Show, yoga, a little bit of reading (though I still have yet to finish Angels and Demons and I started it about a month ago), some other sort of exercise be it running, swimming or biking, making to-do lists, cleaning up, dinner.... those are the more consistent activities of each day.

My big adventure starts on Saturday! I head off to Colorado for ten days to visit my friend Kate. It will be trip #2 for this blog, it's the same friend I visited back in February. I am very excited and I am going to use the 10 days there to get some high altitude exercise in in preparation for my Mount Rainier climb. Then I head off to Seattle, two days before my sister is due to deliver her first baby, my first niece!!! Who knows when she will actually deliver, but I am hoping she won't come too early. Then, July 8-11 my Dad and I head to Mount Rainier to attempt to summit with Rainier Mountain Guides.

I'm excited for my adventures, I am sure those weeks are going to fly by! I will keep you updated on my exciting adventures.


  1. Best of luck, Katie! We miss you already. Come home soon!
