I got 4 more days of waiting before finding out if I will get to run Hood to Coast. I am a very patient person but for this kind of waiting not so much. It is kind of like waiting to know if you got the job or if you got accepted to College.
I got one more week of waiting before I go see Bruce Springsteen!!! That I am good at waiting for because I know it will happen!
2 weeks ago I had an ultrasound for my thyroid. I heard nothing from my Dr. I thought it meant for sure that the results were normal. They don't call you when it is normal. I think it is crap that they don't but that's just me. Today I decided to call my Dr just to be sure...listening to the little voice inside that says...just call it will take a minute. So I called. I asked if they had my results. "Hold please." They hung up on me. GREAT! I call again...and they tell me that the Dr said that I will need to go see an endocrinologist! WHAT? When were they going to call me to let me know? I asked why and does this mean my results are NOT normal? "No they are not normal, your thyroid is enlarged but you have no tumors". WTH? I am so mad. I cannot believe that I am the one who had to call the office to find out about this. So now I have to go see a specialist, that is always fun. Start over with all the medical history. Find a good Dr. WAIT to get an appointment. I don't know about where you live, but here to get an appt with a specialist can take weeks. That kind of waiting I am also not good at because now I need answers and I want to fix what is not working.
I now have a huge migraine. Of course I Googled "enlarged thyroid" and hypothyroid..it is not the end of the world but it does explain some stuff.
Guess who is back? The freaking HEAT. I hate it with a passion.
For me it means that "racing" season is coming to an end. I still participate in races during the summer but I don't chase PRs. The only exception is my next half marathon. It is on June 2nd and I want to PR there. This will be my last half until the cooler temperatures come back in the fall. The heat means I need to carry water for every run. I don't always like to wear my belt..when it gets hot it gets to be really annoying. So I decided to buy a handheld bottle and give it a try. I figured it would be better than to carry a plastic water bottle like I do now.
I went to Dicks and got the blue one on the picture. I was not 100% convinced. I went to Sports Authority and I got the pink one.
Tag on them is the same
But there are not the same.
See: Phone does not fit in the blue one
Phone does fit in the pink one
Means also Waffle Stinger would fit with or without the phone during a half marathon if I don't feel like wearing the belt. So the blue one is going back to Dicks tomorrow.
I got a 1ok Sunday. I wanted to go for PR. It may not happend. I am sick. Sinus are still plugged and I have a nasty sore throat that I cannot get rid of. To add to this the forecast is SUNNY and 90 degrees. Seriously...this sucks.
