Things have been really busy at work, and will only continue to get busier until the end of the year. So, I will attempt to post over the next few months, but it might just be short and sweet updates. For example:
1. I did my civic duty last night and voted in my first election. Elections were being held for Kentucky's Governor, Attorney General, Commissioner, Secretary of State and some other offices. This is the first time in my adult life that I've been living in the state where I was registered to vote when an election took place.
2. I got to work really early this morning to put some final touches on a project I'm working on. I have had 2 Starbucks Doubleshots and a lime Tootsie Roll for breakfast. My heart racing, my hands are shaking and wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I'm typing this post really fast.
3. I am training for a 5k. It seems weird to be "training" for a 3.1 mile race, but I am hoping for a PR of under 25 minutes and an age group win. It is a "Turkey Trot 5k" - I remember during our first year of college, my sister and I signed up for a Turkey Trot 5k in Nacogdoches, TX. We went to the start, picked up our t-shirts, decided we didn't feel like running and went to the cafeteria to eat donuts instead. When we were walking back to our dorm rooms we saw a person in a very large turkey costume running through the street, with a pack of people chasing him.
