Two weeks already?

I've not been so good at updating the blog recently, I will try harder. I've been back 2 weeks now and it's certainly been an interesting couple of weeks (what with the tsunami and all). Not too much exciting has happened though, just the usual work stuff. I've also had 6 (knockout) migraines since I got back which I am totally unimpressed with (I only had 1 while in Canada, and a relatively minor one). I did go and see my nice migraine doctor on thursday though and have another handful of drugs to try (Imitrex works ~50% of the time, which i'm pretty happy with, but there are others to try too). I've also lost my reading glasses, which has been a real pest. It does tell me just how much I need them these days though, so that's rather depressing. So combined with the migraines, my laptop has probably had more of a break than it's had in a while!

Early this morning though I did do a 10K with my friend (and landlady!) Alison. 6.2 miles around Diamondhead. She did the Aloha run (8 miles!) while I was away, so wants to keep it up, and it's about time I get my butt back into gear! It was really fun, 2000 women all out there, from the really fit to walkers and strollers and everything inbetween. We did great - 1.5hrs! A good start to the day, the rest of my sunday is cleaning the house, laundry and errands, but my friend Laura is coming back this evening from Antarctica, i'm excited about that!

The before.....!
The after.....!
Instead of medals they gave us roses as we crossed the finish line - I can't remember the last time I was given a rose!

awesome about the race, rhian.
do you think stress and climate have anything to do with the migraines?

I've been internet searching for environmental triggers for Migraines and haven't come up with much (and forgot to ask the dr), stress is definitely supposed to do it, but to be honest I don't feel that much more stressed than when I was in Canada, so don't feel it's that in total.

Be good to get a better handle on it, completely wiped out my "relaxing" saturday.....:0(
