It's kinda like a prisoners last meal... except mine is only temporary.  Tonight I went for a quick run when I got home from work... somewhere between 1.5 and 2 miles.  I decided to run short and fast because I didn't have a ton of energy after getting home at 7:30 from a long day at the hospital.  I wasn't even going to go when I got home, but I realized it is most likely the last time I will run before my ankle surgery Wednesday, which means it's the last time I'll run for probably a good few months.  Sad, I know.  But hopefully when I start back, I won't have to worry about it hurting all the time! 

So, farewell to the road for a while... I see lots of pull ups and crunches in my future... maybe a little one legged biking.  At least when I return, I'll get to bust out my new Brooks Glycerin running shoes... my current ones have died a slow and painful death and need to be retired very badly.  The new ones will give me motivation to get through those first few weeks of low mileage slow pace pain.  Boo.

I do plan on being in shape (and fast) for the spring racing season... my last collegiate racing season. 

Farewell for now... Tomorrow I will talk about my new service, patients, and all sorts of medicine fun!
