busy busy...

It's amazing how things can just get so BUSY sometimes! Sadly, blogging is what usually has to take the back burner when things get this way. But hopefully I will get caught up on all of your wonderful blogs this weekend!

A few things that have happened recently:

1. This week in doctor school we received our clinical assignments for next year. I will be receiving training in neuropsychology! Looks like I will be spending the rest of the summer brushing up on brain physio.

2. I started a new Bible study with my life group girls. This time we are doing Beth Moore's "Jesus the One and Only". I am loving it so far! Have any of you ever done this study?

I also started reading Beth Moore's book "Believing God", which I highly recommend to anyone looking to grow their faith.

3. I discovered that there is a Sonic way too close to the site where I'm doing clinical training this summer. I have now indulged on chili cheese tots and cherry limeade 3 times in the past 5 days. I must buy groceries this weekend so I can stop this little cycle!

4. My running is going great but I am eager to add on more miles. Right now I am comfortably running 5.25 miles in the mornings. Hubby and I decided we were going to enter the Disney World half marathon. So I go online to register us and the half marathon is already full! This race is almost 7 months away! The full marathon is almost full as well, so I'm asking myself "Should we go for it? Should we try the marathon?" Or am I being overly ambitious?? Should we just wait for next year?? What do you hard core runners think? Is it possible to go from running 5.25 miles on June 4 to being able to run 26.2 miles by January 10?? I mean, I know it's POSSIBLE, but let's not forget I'm a full time doctorate student who doesn't have beaucoup time to devote to training. Hmmmm...decisions, decisions. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

That is great that you received your assignments. I hope you learn a lot and enjoy it.

I'm glad you're enjoying the bible study program. It sounds great!

Do you know that I have never been to a Sonic? We don't have any close by.

I cannot believe the marathon is full already. You're doing great with all of your running. I don't know much about it, but if you can find the time, I bet you could do the full marathon :)

Way to go with the running. Trying to build up those miles myself. Keep up the good work!

I'm sure there are lots of programs online to help train you...I know you can do it! My sister in law trained for one pretty quickly & isn't a big athlete necessarily...I'll ask her about it! Congrats on your Psych placement - it sounds super interesting!

I read Believing God a couple of months ago and am still wearing my blue bracelet to this day!
