Just figured I'd check in. I'm still around. PhD'ing is tending to be a little busy. Blogging has had to take a bit of a break. Fitness-wise I'm keeping up as best as I can. This semester has been rough. I've only been able to get to spin class once a week. I do manage to get a decent amount of hiking around town though. Here is one example with Mandy (the girlfriend took the picture).
I've also just started to experiment with walking her off lease around our apartment complex. I only do it for the morning walks when the younger college kiddies are still sleeping. She's been great so far.
