Watching while I shovel the second time today. Notice how happy he is to sit and watch rather then to pick up a shovel and start shoveling! I guess he doesn't have an opposable thumb but that is no excuse for his slacker habits!
Curious about what might be under the snow....
Rolling around in the snow
Now, covered in snow!
A close up of the result of all his rolling around!
I work as a Mathematical Statistician at the FDA. My husband, Tristan and I live with our 3 Ragdoll cats (Zaboomafoo, Sagwa, PowderPuffGirl) and Bernese Mountain dog (Gilligan).
I am a long distance runner, but go slowly (I have finished last in a few endurance events).
When not at work or running, I spend time hiking in Maryland/Virginia or traveling with Tristan. Most of our trips are geared towards me running a marathon and/or my husband climbing a peak (in fact Tristan is a peak-bagger, which means he plans to summit the high point of every state...this is good because it enables me to run a marathon in every state!).
In 2009, I will be the co-chair of a large statistical conference. This will be my first experience leading such a big event; however, hopefully the perseverance and endurance I have learned while ultra-marathoning will help me succeed.
My goal in life is to become a motivational speaker and coach. At this point I do both freelance...with the optimal emphasis on the word "free".
I hope everyone has the opportunity to live out their dream and break down barriers that stand in one's way whether actual or imagined.
