Update

How is everyone? Things here are just fine. Eric is a whopping 16 lbs 3 oz from his last appointment on Friday. He got his second round of shots and won’t be back until January for his 6 month well check. He is in his second week of Daycare and seems to be doing just fine. We think that he caught maybe the tail end of a stomach virus, but he must have his dad’s tolerance to some ailments. He seemed to have some diarrhea but that was about it. It won’t be the last time…

School is going fine for me. I will be having the second round of exams for both classes before Thanksgiving Break. For my epidemiology class, the final will be a presentation, but for Multivariate, it will be part take home, part in class.

Running is going well. I was supposed to run a 5k race this past Sunday for time, but I wasn’t able to make it. I am trying for a PR time for Autumnfest 8k of 35:40 which would be a pace of 7:08 min/mile which I am not sure that I can maintain for 5 miles. We will see. I was planning on running the Oak Ridge Half Marathon this Sunday, but due to financial difficulties, I will have to pass. I can always run the 13 miles on my own, but it is easier when there is an organized race to run.

I'm a husband, father and runner in the Knoxville area. I love the way that running makes me feel and how it has changed my thinking. I am always looking for the new PR whether in the 5k or the marathon
