December Update

I see that it has been over a month since I have updated this page. Shame on me. Well, let me get to it.

I finished the semester with a 4.0. Yes, my second 4.0 semester, ever. I got an A in my epidemiology and multivariate classes along with satisfactory in my non-grade classes. So school is going well. I just have to study for my retake of the comps this January. I am also working a the SCC for the holiday break, but we are closed the entire week of Christmas… WOO HOO.

Eric had been doing really well up until this week. He had a high fever this week and now has a cough and sore throat. The fever is gone but he is still uncomfortable. We are trying to keep him hydrated and as comfortable as possible. Hopefully he will be better for next week since we are having a bunch of people at our house for Christmas.

Running has been pretty good. With the ed of the semester, I have not ran much at all, I had wanted to run a PR time at Autumnfest, but no such luck, I did not have the training for it. The next Sunday I ran the Reindeer Run and I hit the wall at mile 2.2, but managed to finish with a decent time. In my defense, I had been sick since Thanksgiving and was just beginning to feel better. Most recently, I ran the Jingle Bell run here in Knoxville with john Fields and that was nice to get some more running in. Since Eric has been sick, I have not been able to get any running in at all during the week. I guess it is not a lost cause because I got a bug of some sort that I am trying to beat. Oh, well. that is about it for the most part.

Congratulations to John Devaney for finishing his 3rd marathon on December 14th in a time of 07:08:27.
