So, if you follow me on twitter you may have noticed some cryptic things about a foot injury. Well, I’m 99% sure I have a stress fracture (I’ve had them before). I am the WORST at being injured so I’ve just been ignoring it and hoping it will go away, and strangely enough, it hasn’t. The pain has been getting worst in the last two weeks and this morning (of course, on our company’s ski day which I’ve been looking forward to for months) I woke up because of my foot throbbing. I think it’s time to throw in the towel and let someone look at it. I’m trying not to think about the half marathon I have coming up at the end of the month, and just focusing on getting into the doctor and seeing what he has to say (and hopefully that can be sometime next week, if any of you have any sway with Philadelphia doctors, let me know…).
BUT, yesterday before I had this grand realization I went for a run. And it was beautiful.
I think I would love living in the mountains. My company is headquartered here (which is why I’m here right now), and in a dream world I’d be working and living out here in a year or two (dream big, right?).
How has the roof not collapsed from all of that snow?!
Above is the mountain I will NOT be skiing on today…
Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’d love living here.
Beyond my foot, this has been a really solid week. We had some great meetings yesterday and I felt like we got a lot done and that I learned a lot from the people I got to speak to. At this point I’ve been with this company for almost 5 months and I finally feel like I know what is going on MOST of the time and I also feel like I know a lot more of my coworkers (which is hard when you work remotely). Of course, it doesn’t hurt when you also have some great bonding sessions like doing ski shots and playing Apples to Apples…
Alright my friends, it’s time for me to take a shower and prepare to be the best ski bunny ever. Make it a great day!
