Well, I haven’t written in awhile because I haven’t been running much. And mostly I’ve been cold and miserable and whiny about it and I know you don’t wanna hear all that.
The good news is that I got some much needed medical attention during my sojourn in the US – several high quality massages, great core training advice and diagnosis and treatment of adrenal fatigue. So I feel like I am in good shape moving forward and looking forward to getting back into shape and a good solid running routine.
Today I board a flight to start the long trek to my new life in Bukavu, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I am taking up the position of Partnership Coordinator for the International Rescue Committee and will be there for at least a couple of years, if not many more. I fly to New York, then Brussels, then Kinshasa where I’ll be for a couple of weeks of orientation. So, stay tuned for dispatches from a country rebuilding after a long, hard civil war.
