Hodge-Podge Week

First ribbons since...middle school?
Last week was a hodge-podge kind of week:

  1. Coming back from a charette in St. Louis.
  2. Last Sunday was my first test run on roads since injury.
  3. First week of getting back on track with training.
  4. Office moving.
  5. Back to Girls on the Run after missing for a week.
  6. Saw Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy. Great movie, one that leaves you thinking about it for the next couple days.
  7. Worked remotely for half the week since the last permit of our new office is still pending.
  8. Last week before Coach Patty retires. Sadness looming.
  9. Swim meet on Saturday - I came in last in all three events (200 Free, 500 Free, and 100 IM). But I did put in faster times than in my previous meets. It gives me some goals to work towards before next month's Nationals.
  10. Failed to drink nothing but water during the week. I couldn't resist the opportunity to work from a coffee shop, and one thing led to another...
  11. The change of environment spurs creativity...but it's not necessarily work-related.
  12. Loves how He speaks while I do one of my favorite things - running.
  13. Being reminded at church today to not be complacent. It's always been my prayer that God will use and send me wherever He see fits and I'm almost too afraid to pray that prayer now for the comfort I'm in - physically, emotionally, and socially. 
  14. Also at church today, we sang Chris Tomlin's Indescribable and I loved the lyrics:
Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same
You are amazing God

Over ten days of the Lenten season has passed. I hope I won't let it slip by.
