New GraniteGals podcast, and quick update on the DVT

The girls were away with their dad for a few weeks and they didn't have GraniteGals interviews lined up quite right to keep their every-two-weeks timing going.  To fill a gap this week, so they could produce an episode on time, they interviewed me.  :)  Here's the link to their GraniteGals site -- you can download the latest mp3 there.  They are still waiting for the blog host transfer to go can take up to 15 days and today is day hopefully that will all be figured out soon.  In the meantime, you can download the mp3s of the interviews off the GraniteGals website.

It's been about a month since I found out I have another blood clot.  I have worked hard at rehabbing my leg to optimize blood flow, and so far all is well.  I've been back at 4Ks for two weeks now.  I am now right back to where I was before in terms of hiking ability, and I've taken off about 7 or 8 pounds.  The major difference is that when I am sitting, my leg needs to be up, and I need to take more breaks when I am driving for more than an hour at a time.  Things could be worse.

The girls will do a 4K hike or two this week; keep an eye on Alex's blog, alexinthewhitemountains, for the trip reports.
