Road Trip

Road Trip

I’m traveling up the Hudson River by train this morning from New York City to Saratoga Springs.

To say that I’m feeling footloose is not to fully appreciate how free I feel in mind and spirit. Perhaps it’s because I have two days off as a celebration of sorts: I’ve been invited to speak at my college to the incoming group of graduate students about writing the final project. I’ll also do a small presentation on my thesis, Boundaries in Motion: Women’s Boxing. It’s a lovely honor, one that I truly appreciate. Beyond that it means I get to talk about the wonders of women’s boxing as a metaphor for perseverance, hard work and effort, and the feeling of accomplishment that one can have at attaining a goal.

I also appreciate that it’s a good thing to revel in one’s own accomplishments from time to time.  So this is a bit of an “atta’ girl” to myself, which I figure that all of us need from time to time.  Meanwhile, I’ll get to hang out at the indoor pool or tool around the town of Saratoga Springs while the students are busy having their minds blown with all the dawn till midnight roster of activities that graduate school residencies are famous for.

I am talking true post-grad heaven here.

Otherwise, it’s on to the next goal!  Crunches on the train!
