Out of Work and Working Out

It's amazing how quickly life changes. Less than three weeks ago, I was stressing about regional meetings and nominating committees, and delegate communications. Then Wednesday, February 10, 2010 happened. At 11:00 a.m., I was called into a meeting room by my supervisor. At 11:30 a.m., I was being escorted to my car by my supervisor. Then events began to unfold rapidly. And now, I find myself living with my parents back in Cornville. The Great Brattleboro Experiment has ended. Now I worry about following around my brother's hired hand to keep him from killing himself or the cows. Frankly, I am more concerned with the cows.

Interestingly enough, as I gathered my things to leave the office, I thought "How am I going to work out?" Thankfully, my parents do have a treadmill. However, I have apparently forgotten how to run or something because when I use it, my feet tend to slip. I would not be surprised if I get a major case of rubber road rash before the weather improves so I can run on asphalt. Yes, there are tarred roads in Cornville. Until then, I will be maintaining a walking workout of 3.0 mph for a half hour or so, so that my legs stay in shape. I hope to be back up to running at least a little bit, but we'll see.
