I Live in Iowa: Week 208

I suppose this would count as four years, although I actually had my first night in Dubuque April 17th, 2011. I'm not going to dwell on staying in one place for four years, because in a way it depresses me, as if I am giving up on ambition and pushing myself in favor of complacency. Complacency scares me.

I ran 20 miles this week! Well, 19.8, but outside of that little 90 mile run in April this is the highest mileage week I have ran since February! Hooray! Five days of running! You know what, this week is going to be even better, not much, but a little. My left leg stress fracture/tendonitis has healed, or all but healed, and my right leg achilles is coming around quite nicely and in a week or two will be full strength.

Work was good. I was in the office two days and a few hours, before heading to North Carolina for the end of the work week. Eh, work is work. I got some things done, but not as much as I would have liked because there are so many processes to go from concept to reality that going by the book is a legitimate three to four month process to implement something as simple as a plastic washer. However, having gone through our production launch this past winter, and learning as much as I did, and seeing how "production" really happens, I'm not frazzled at all about it. I want to say I don't care, but it's more like, I'm not going to fight to be more efficient and effective, because I've been there and I've done that and I don't get paid enough to do that all the time.

If you are ever in Monroe, North Carolina I recommend Spiro's Hilltop restaurant. They have good seafood and they have good land food.

Saturday I volunteered at the Grandview Gallop with 1042 runners. Since I am still on the injured list, or at least not the healthy enough to race list, I wanted to help out and give back, so I helped hand out registration packets and answer questions. It was a good experience, and I would do it again if an opportunity presents itself.


  1. Testimony On How My Life was Transform through the help of a God-sent Lender..

    Hello everyone, I am Kathie Roper by name, am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what Mason Diego did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would advise you to email Mr Diego via: { } or call (608) 728-8913 and be free of internet scams. thanks... Kathie Roper from California, USA.
