Foot pain. I just need to deal with it for a little longer.

UCSD job interview at lunch today. - REALLY liked the job. Salary may be low - hope it will be at least what I currently make. Won't hear back for 2 to 3 weeks. UGH! I hope they at least offer me the job.

I am really feeling crazy with this taper. I think it is the combination of taper and all the pre-race excitement and jitters with the stress of the job interviews. I don't want to make a wrong decision. I know I need to look at the options - salary, benefits, advancement, security, work-life balance, location, etc. and the correct decision will appear. I hope I have a decision to make. Face to face interviews with two places this week.

I feel ready to race!!!

Jenn is no longer coming to crew for me for the double iron. I am disappointed, but so thankful to have other great crew members. I am REALLY looking forward to seeing Tammy and Fred. It is going to be a great adventure!.

Mission Bay morning run.

I had uploaded my CV to several sites and directly applied for several jobs during the past few weeks. Toward the end of last week and this week I stated getting multiple emails and calls. Exciting! :-) Hoping to have a few offers soon. I was thinking it would be nice to start after the first of the new year, but most of the jobs are ready now. Going to roll with it and try to not stress.

TAPER!!! Skipped the afternoon swim today. :-( Too busy with work and a lunch time in person interview.
