running the race (results).
Sunday, 12/14, I ran in the Make Room For Santa 5k. I've been walking and starting to run all year, so I thought it fitting - plus the race course circled my house. This is not the start of massive change - I won't be racing every week. But I've completed it to the pride of my husband and pride of my son. And then watch my son in the kids race. I hope that, in about four years, all five of us will complete a race, together.
I have options at work - to join the corporate team on a data definition project that, while highly valuable, will be most frustrating. Really, how often are manuals used? In IT, defining "master data" is the ultimate instruction document that will be used by no one. Or, I can join an operations team, made up primarily of women. I would be truly a translator for the operation. Not really where my passions lie.
In January, the Chinese calendar ushers in the year of the Ox. Being an Ox, I anticipate stable forward movement from all, so I need to make change to then carry th plough forward.
