Treadmillin miles today. Started at 7:30 pace and finished around 6:30.

My niece Elizabeth is wrapping up her Spring Break visit to Utah today. She's thinking of applying the the U for medical school after she graduates from college next year. We crammed a lot of stuff in to just a few days. She got to watch my wife admit a gunshot wound to the head dude on Friday night and hung around the NCC for a few hours. This morning Ann was able to get her into the operating room to watch some brain surgery and Nathan Krah gave her a tour of the medical school this afternoon.

Running will be hit or miss the next couple days with parent-teacher conferences at school.

And she still wants to go to medical school after that? Sounds like a good place for her then.

That sounds like one of my treadmill runs except I always end on even numbers.

I didn't see anything here about the doctor visit. No rubber gloves? Elbow length?
