Tally ho!

I'm picking my walking back up tomorrow morning. The business launch is moving along very smoothly, thanks to my ace research associate, Lauren. I have coined a new phrase -- that of an issue being an "LP," meaning "it's a problem for Lauren to handle."

I'm happy to report that my stress test yesterday turned out to be extremely normal. The medical folks predicted how long I would have to walk on the treadmill to get my heart rate up to a certain range based on demographics, and I kicked that average out the door. It took three minutes longer than the average for me to get my heart rate to that level, and then to take it on past the end of the range for average. Everything on both the test and the echogram were completely normal.

Doing that well made me miss my trainer. Once things settle a bit more, I'll look into either a gym or a yoga class. Walking to and from the office should also be possible once I finish shuttling my files from the home office.

Penny runs tomorrow in the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon. She set this as a goal for herself back when it was still snowing. The whole team is very proud of her. Please join me in sending her all good karma among those 25,000 moving bodies.

I'm glad the stress test went well. You have been going a million miles per hour lately so am glad to hear that the body can keep up with the great mind!
