I had a wonderful week with my mom and now am back to the grind: work and my masters. So far my running this week consists of 5 miles on Monday night. Sigh. And, yes I'm in panic mode--1 month to go for Empúries! Tomorrow I have to do a presentation on Jihad and The Modern World at 8:30 am! I'm definitely going to slip in a lunch-time run with some new tunes: Caroline Herring and some classic Van Morrison.
