I’ve been a bit behind these last two weeks. Life has just been a little busy, so I haven’t found the time to recap the progress over the last two weeks.
I didn’t run very much these last two weeks. It just seemed like I had a lot going on. For the first week, I ran twice, for a total of 8.13 miles. For the second week, I ran once, but it was a nice run for 10.52 miles. I had been ready to get right back into it, when BAM! I got sidelined pretty badly with another sinus cold. It took me out of commission for the last 4 days, and I’m still battling it. The allergies this year have been terrible.
So, my goal now is to just heal and recover from this cold.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Let’s see what I remember.
This is going to be the lightning round edition, so here we go:
So, two weeks ago, I met up with some old friends and coworkers. Later that Friday, I went to a talk at the Warner Theater, and then that weekend, my brother in law was in town for a nice visit. Then that Sunday, we went up to Bethesda to visit some friends and see their new house. I then developed this weird taste bud inflammation in my mouth, which lead to me completely losing my taste for the last week or so. It’s been an interesting experience, a kind of experience of not knowing what you have until it’s gone. Now that I can’t taste anything, I certainly realize that I took it for granted. And when it comes back (hopefully soon), I’ll remember that! You get lessons on life perspective at the most random moments sometimes.
The rest of the last week was spent with the usual work and family routine, and with a healthy amount of gym time. I came down with the aforementioned sinus cold on Thursday, and have been down for the count ever since.
Mini has been growing a lot over the last two weeks. She’s incredibly curious and interactive now. She grabs her walker at a moments notice and she’s off to the races, exploring every nook and cranny of our condo. She’s ready to take her first steps at any moment. Her sleep schedule is amazingly consistent. She goes down at 7pm like clockwork, which is just great for us. She’s also an adventurous eater–she doesn’t hesitate to try any new foods we put in front of her, and she’s also not afraid to tell us when she doesn’t want something.
