Last night was a full moon (if there had been no cloud cover) and Alexi (my new workout partner) and I decided to do a running race that was at night over on the French side. It has been a long time since I had run a race, and I think a first with a headlamp on as it was really dark without the moon. My body does not like working out at night and the humidity was really high - so I was happy to complete the race in one piece and it felt good. It was Alexi's first race ever and she did amazing. I wish we had some pics to add but we just looked like we came out of a shower we were so sweaty, so noone is missing anything special there. The best part of the race - well to help re-hydrate from all that sweating they provide you with beer. Only on an island I tell ya.......it was alot of fun - glad I did it.
We are in the middle of Block Weekend (the weekend before all the med students have all their exams on Monday) so the power is going out a fair amount - everyone inside with air conditioning on feverishly studying. This means it is a good time to get out and explore the island. Look for some fun posts to come as I experiment with my new toys for my camera - with the help of my sister while she is here.
