I can't believe it's been 1.5 years.
Medical school is a selfish mistress. So many times, I wanted to leave the confines of the desk or library, but she says "sure you can go to that awesome sounding party.... if you wanna be the idiot who flunks out of med school." Hence my absence from blogging for 1.5 years. But now that I'm nearing the end of my first year, I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. At least enough to have a small life outside of school. I will be ringing in Block 5, the last block of my first year with a 10K run sponsored by Nike called She Runs LA.
It's a digital run which means that you don't have to battle traffic and crowds and the crazy parking that characterizes LA. Just run between 4pm on Wed Apr 27 and 4pm Thurs Apr 28. If you have a Nike Plus device, make sure you run with that and sync your run which makes you eligible to win prizes like new sneakers and stuff. And instead of the usual post-run street fair atmosphere of energy drink samples and sweaty crowds, you get a cool concert at the Nokia Theater which Nike is calling the "ultimate girls night out." This run is catered towards women, but the boys are not only welcome to run, but also go to the post-run festivies on Thursday night!
Registration is normally $40, but if you leave me a comment here, I can even give you a code so you can register for FREE! Just remember to tweet me or leave me your email address :)
Here are some more details from the run's facebook page
See you there! :)
