I felt like this week went by slowly. Did anyone else?
This weekend the Pope comes to Philadelphia. They have estimated 2 million people will go see him on Sunday morning. People are walking from my area and over the Ben Franklin bridge. Running that route would take about an hour and a half…walking will take about 10 hours (with security). Just leave your selfie sticks at home because those are band…
I think it’s good that the area is going into lockdown and protecting him but I do think it’s been overhyped too. They closed far too many roads, streets and highways in NJ so I’m interested to see what the traffic will be like.
In Nonrelated Pope news:
Unpacking is harder than packing. We have now lived in our house one week but due to all my issues I haven’t unpacked my end. All in due time (or before the next move).
In related to me not unpacking news: My shin is doing well and I’m recovering…I’m just frustrated that I cannot do normal things as fast as usual. Basically I want to do everything faster and I can’t.
I was able to run a little bit and it didn’t feel any worse. My stitches are still in tact and not inflamed/swollen. The doctor said due to the location of the stitches I could run. If it was in an area like the knee that moves or bends with running I would not be able to run because the stitches would loosen and come out. So in summary my shin was the best place to take a chunk out.
I was glad to see a coworker of mine on a run. She was leading a stroller run and pushing a double but it was nice to see her. Surprisingly the cuts on my face are healing quickly as well.
Music I recently downloaded:
Lady Gaga: Until it Happens to You
I’ve always admired Lady Gaga’s ability to conquer certain topics and talk openly and freely about various issues. In her latest music video she brings awareness to sexual assault on college campuses. 20-25% of females on college campuses have been sexually assaulted.
Tonight is the Air Force Ball. Even though it looks like I got punched in the face with my cuts, we are still going. I’ll probably post a photo on instagram but you might not recognize me without runderwear I guess.
Questions for you:
What are your plans this weekend?
Have you ever had stitches?
