    I still had the lovely burning in my sinus' but generally felt much better today. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and have been taking sudafed to cut down on my congestion. Tonight I decided to go to the pool and get my heart rate up a little. I felt pretty good.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Still unpacking and getting used to Pittsburgh. It's going to be a long adjustment process, I fear. I'm constantly getting lost. My car GPS is a fail. Not that I'm driving my car at the moment after getting rear ended. I felt a little more like myself at last night's practice with all the UW work.

    Lil Fort is doing much better than me. She loves her newly renovated suite and has been training with the high school girls, which she likes. The coach has said she can run with them throughout the year.
