medicine, running

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

So, here I am in New Orleans.  I’m attending a medical conference.  In New Hampshire, all physicians are required to complete a minimum of 50 hours of continuing medical education yearly.  For the past several years, I’ve done most of mine online, as getting away for a conference was tough, what with pregnancy, childbirth, infants and breastfeeding, etc.  I do find that I get a lot more out of actually attending a conference, though.  It gets me into that learning mindset, and I just get to concentrate on doing nothing but absorbing new information.

I have to admit, it’s also nice to have a change of scenery.  Thanks to my awesome parents, who are pulling babysitting duty, both Patrick and I were able to get away for a few days.

I always like to go for a run after I travel to a new place.  First of all, it’s a great way to stretch out all the kinks after a long flight.  It’s also a terrific way to see some of the sights and get the lay of the land.  Here are some pictures from my run yesterday.

This is where I will make up all the calories that I burn during the run (if you’ve never had a beignet, you’re missing out).

More blogging from my conference tomorrow!
