Turkey Trot

For someone who hated to run, I've certainly changed my mind. This is me and my friend Anita after we both completed the 2009 Turkey Trot. I was very happy with my time - 49 minutes and 18 seconds for 8k. We certainly may not look our best, but we were feeling pretty good!

Fun and Friends

This past month has been very busy for me for a variety of reasons including work and travel, but mostly because of fun and friends:
  • I joined a great group of Cancan dancers and performed at a festival in Milwaukee after only three lessons,
  • I competed in the North American National Champtionships with my wonderful team in Nashville and we took second place, and
  • The Dayton Celtic Festival is this weekend - what a great way to celebrate my birthday!

The two most exciting bits of upcoming fun and friends events happen today and next month, respectively:

  • I am getting together with one of my roommates from Prague, Alice, this afternoon before she moves to California for grad school, and
  • My best friend, Amber, is coming to town next month (she lives in Minnesota - at least a 10 hour drive)!

I can't wait to see these lovely ladies! It will be so nice to catch up with them!

Sounds of Summer

I am watching So You Think You Can Dance, listening to the chirp of crickets and the rustle of wind through the trees.

These are the reasons I love summer.

Last month I took a trip with 12 wonderful ladies to the British Virgin Islands. We spent a week on Virgin Gorda in a beautiful villa. It was a great trip - sun, sand, swimming, and lots of island drinks. We're already planning our return trip in two years. I can't wait!

I've been absent from my blog for a long time. Part of it is due to getting caught up in facebook, part of it is busy-ness, and part of it is out of town-ness. I will post photos from my trip to Ireland soon - probably after the craziness that is St. Patrick's Day.

I will be taking another trip in 47 days to the British Virigin Islands. I cannot wait (as indicated by my precise countdown)! I have been browsing Flickr for photos other people have taken, and I found this gorgeous sunset. This was taken in January this year. If it was so beautiful then, I can't imagine what it will be like in April.

I'm so excited!
