I was thinking about numbers today and thought I would try to figure out some things about my year
22- Emergency Medicine Residency programs where I applied
11- Programs where I will interview
6 - Programs West of the Mississippi
5 - Programs East of the Mississippi
1- Place I will match
5- Planes I will be on in the next 48 hours
5- Times I have been at Phoenix Sky Harbor International this year
But what got me thinking about all these numbers was my intense desire for coffee. In my 5 trips to PHX, I have never had a hard time acquiring a cup of the highly addictive Starbucks coffee. Why is that?
There are eight, EIGHT Starbucks at PHX. I blame this airport for single handedly feeding my addiction for the black stuff. Bastards.
On the positive side, they have free wireless and the most convenient rental car center in the country. So they aren't all that bad.
Some other numbers that I have been pondering...
23- Number of planes I will have boarded between November 11th and January 11th
7- Rental cars this year
3- Christmas presents I have purchased
7- Shopping days left
And now for something relevant to the blog...
0- Times I have been in a pool since November 15th
2- Places I have bikes set up on trainers at the moment
0- Times I have been on either of them since Saturday
100- Times I am trying to run in the next 100 days (slow base miles)
0- injury pains of any sort I have had in the past 1.5 months
3- Pounds I have gained in the past 2 months
Ok, enough of this foolishness. I have a plane to catch.
