Howdy from some little town outside of Philadelphia.

I swear for the life of me I couldn’t tell you where we are right now. All I know is that I drove 6 hours yesterday (most in the dark) and we got to our hotel around 9:00 pm.

Good luck to my hubby! I know he is so nervous but I know he will do great! 

Just for those of you who are wondering:

This is the practical portion of his Step 2 Medical Board Exam. He will see 12 (I said 10 in my previous post and was wrong) standardized patients. He has 14 minutes to ask them all the questions, perform the necessary tests, and put together a treatment plan. 

After he finishes that he has 9 minutes to write up a complete note on the patient. He will find out in a month or so if he passed. Fingers crossed!!


I am pretty exhausted. I was a little bummed when I realized I left my gym shoes at home since I had planned on getting in a little weight workout this morning at the hotel gym, but I guess I will be taking a complete rest day after all!


Back up to yesterday morning.

I had another run scheduled. I am not going to call them test runs anymore because I think at this point in my recovery every run I do is a test run. I know I have AT LEAST another month before I am really able to run consistently, but I use each run to see where I am at and to slowly get my body prepared.

I went up to a field behind our house and did a 2 mile run on the grass.

I am not sure if it was actually softer than the treadmill because the ground was frozen. I had to dodge a lot of icey patches, but it went well for the most part.

Every run outside now requires a minimum of 3 layers.


I read in the comments on my previous post how many of you requested more pictures of Zoe.

Your wish is my command.

This was from this morning when I took her to a friends house for the night. We are so lucky to have friends that will watch her while we are gone. Thankfully this will only be for a night, but I sure miss that face!


We got on the road a little bit later than expected and I spent most of the time trying to figure out where we were going.

Our Garmin died before we even left Erie, thank goodness for cell phones and google maps!

About 4 hours into the drive I was getting hungry so we stopped at Sheetz to eat. 

I opted for the grilled chicken salad with a hard boiled egg, banana peppers, pickles, and tomatoes. It was actually really god! I was surprised how nice it was especially considering it came from a gas station!

Of course, as you all know I am married to the candy man so I stole some of his candy to keep me awake for the rest of the drive!


What kinds of food do you typically look for when you are on the road?

Are you a candy eater? What’s your favorite candy?
