Keeping a blog is a real pain in the ass sometimes. I'm not very good at it, I've never been good about writing about myself and/or thoughts, and it takes me way longer to write 3 paragraphs than it should. I think my only dedicated readers are Josh, my mom and me when I google myself.
I have a few semi-important life updates:
1. I got a fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston) for 2012-13 in Breast Pathology. This probably only means something to <0.0005% of the general population so I'll summarize the importance of this ... it's a big deal. I'm really really happy that I will be able to work with, and learn from, some of the best physicians in my field. It will be a truly wonderful year. This also means we have to pack ourselves up and hike out to Boston for a year. And then after that ... who knows? It's really crazy to think that this long journey that started way back in 2000 when I graduated from college is almost over. 11 years is a long time. To put it in some perspective, and potentially depress me, a lot of the people I race with were lucky if they were teenagers 11 years ago. ... okay, next.
2. Well, I can't really share topic #2 yet. It's really exciting and I'll definitely update when I can. Suspense. For the 0-2 people who read my blog, suspense is a good thing. You pay money to watch a suspenseful movie for 2 hours and I'm giving it to you for free. Enjoy!
3. The ERV track racing season is right around the corner, just about a month away! It will be a great season and I'm really excited to get back out there again.
And that my friends, sums up my life. Pathology and track racing. I've learned a lot over these past 10 or so years, one of the most important things being to chase what you love. Determination and hard work will pay off in the end.
