I know for most people, this long holiday weekend is reserved mainly for giving thanks and rejoicing with family and friends where sloth and gluttony take a vacation from the list of deadly sins. Unfortunately, as I was so rudely reminded by my secretary as she handed me my recently updated patient list today, I am not most people. I will be hard at work bright and early Friday morning and possibly all through the rest of the weekend.
I can’t complain though because part of the reason I have clinic duty this weekend is because I’m taking off most of next week for a marathon vacation in
We have quite a few wild party itineraries planned for when we arrive so this marathon preparation period is going to be a little bit out of the ordinary for me. Obviously then, there’ll be no grand delusions of a sub-3:00 or a P.R. attempt in this marathon as I’m strictly looking for a fun and leisurely scenic run around the Strip. If I have to guess, I’ll probably end up with a personal worst this time around—and I’ll be all fine with it.
In any case, I'll probably have more to say about the marathon next week. Honestly, I really haven't thought much about it or even looked at the course. (Bad Laminator!) First, just let me get through the rest of this holiday work week. Unlike the rest of you all, I’ll be so thrilled when it’s all over. Play time for me will start when play time for everyone else is over. What a wierd dichotomy!
In the meantime, enjoy enjoy your turkeys (and your Turkey Trots) everyone!
