One of my really good friends got married on March 19th. My parents, Jessica(best friend) and I traveled to Scottsdale Arizona, and stayed for the whole weekend. I had never met her husband Jonathan before since he lives in England so it was nice to finally meet him. They met while Samantha was doing a semester abroad. The wedding was great, and the best man’s speech was hilarious!
½ Marathon Training
As many of you know I have been training for a half marathon. Well on March 18th, the day before Samantha’s wedding I ran 7 miles and made really good time, but my knee was killing me. I was limping around for the wedding and was really starting to worry about my knee. Well after the wedding I traveled back to Granite Bay to have some quality time with my parents and get some much needed appointments taken care of (got my hair done, yay!). Well I continued to run while at home, my Mom biked while I ran. My Mom mentioned along with Bryan that I should go get my knee looked at. So I went to an orthopedist, and ultimately got referred to a physical therapist. The good news is that there is NOTHING wrong with my knee, I just have a really tight IT band(muscle that goes from your hip to your knee and attaches to your outer kneecap) and I have a very weak vastus medialis ( inner quad muscle that attaches to the inner kneecap). So basically my kneecap is being pulled to the outside every step I take. So I have lots of stretching and exercises I have to do every day and it seems to be getting better.
So while I went to Samantha’s wedding Bryan got to go to Island Park with his family. They have made it a yearly trip and snowmobiling is a must. This weekend was shorter than last with Bryan and his family going up late Friday afternoon are returning early Sunday.
So I had my first Intel interview. It was over the phone and I was so nervous. I have been applying to Intel in Folsom since December and this is my first response from anyone at the company. The interview went well, but next time I will be more prepared. He asked a bunch of technical questions and I realized I needed to brush up on the basics a bit since I haven’t had an intro computer engineering course in a few years.
Snow in April!
Well last night it snowed a ton here. It felt like winter all over again. So this morning I took the pup to Tanner for some fun in the snow. We haven’t been to Tanner in a month of so since it has been so muddy. Kumo was so excited, he started whining as soon as we got on the freeway.
