Swimming in an outdoor pool all year is nice. :-)

Dragging my feet with the job offer. Isis Pharmaceutical is a really great company. The job will be demanding and stressful, but the employees do seem to enjoy working at the company. The salary is more than my current salary and the medical/dental/vision benefits are good. I will have a lot to learn and their expectations are high. Long hours and a long commute = less time for tri training. Since I am renting, I can always move closer to work and live in north county. My lease is up this summer. I really love where I live. It will be good to have 6 months with the commute and then decide if I want to move. I can put them off until Monday, but I will then need to let them know. UCSD stated that they expect to make a decision this week. I hope they do. I would love to have an offer from them and then compare the two. Even if they don't make me an offer, it will be good to know.

Afternoon ride near my place. Linda Vista to Genesse and back. I think I spent more time waiting at lights than I did riding.

Isis Pharmaceuticals made me a job offer today. :-) I hope to hear from UCSD by the end of the week and then can make a decision.

Waste of time interview today. Oh well, at least it was another possible option. I feel that I now have lots of interview experience.

Del Mar ocean swim. Chilly water 62 degrees. Brrrrr.

I had fun running last night and most of my body is ready to run. My foot is the exception. It hurts!!! Still not healed. I know it has not been that long. I just need to give it more time. Now is the time to let it fully recover.

Dinner this evening with Mike, Meghann, and Dave. It was great to exchange race stories with Meghann. She raced Kona the same weekend as the double Anvil. We are not back to our morning runs, so we had so much catching up to do. Dave strongly advices me to not run for a month. That is a long time! :-(

Still no job offer from UCSD or Isis Pharma. Come on UCSD!!!!! I had a call today about another position I applied for last month. The position is with Tri-City Medical Center located just south of Oceanside. It would be another long commute (like Isis) and I am so tired of interviews. Interview is scheduled for Monday. Until I have an offer, I need to stay open for all options. Things with my current job are still going okay. The job will last until late summer and they are submitting another grant for a similar research study that would extend my job and the jobs of my co-workers at Walter Reed and the Pensacola Navy Base. I am not feeling too confident the new grant will be funded and then also approved by the government. Even if it is, I really need a different position.

I want to make some decisions about races for next year. I have a list, but it is all so expensive!
