I thought about titling this as a running update but, well, I haven’t been doing much of that. I took a few more days off after my butt x-ray and sat around on the roomie’s hot water bottle. I was going to break out of the running funk on Wednesday when the sky cracked and hasn’t stopped leaking since then. Yes, I realize that it is possible to run in the rain. I even do it sometimes. But it is really cold and it created a slick icy cover over many of the sidewalks and….I’m lazy. The worst part is: I have a 5km race on Sunday. I swear, if I can’t finish 5km anymore I will cry. My goal was 29:00 but I’m running with a friend and her goal is 28:30 so why don’t I just make that my goal. The reward is chili and live music so hopefully that acts as sufficient motivation.
I have been working on/avoiding a post about health care and ethics. Partly because I am out of that realm now so it isn’t all up in my face every day. The other reason is that I like to explore the issues but I think most people would find what I say fairly offensive. Heads up: me exploring an issue doesn’t mean I have decided that is what I think about it. Actually, it is often me just noticing a few inconsistencies and drawing them out to the most extreme conclusions and wanting someone to counter with a point I hadn’t thought of. In fact, I was talking through some of my points a few weeks ago with JHarv and she brought something up that I hadn’t considered which may have changed the course of my post somewhat.
