I'm a surgical resident so I'm usually running around the hospital at all hours of the day and sometimes night, but I'm currently on a rotation that doesn't demand so much of my time. What can I say? It's liberating! I want to use this time to see, explore, and enjoy what's out there! In my free time I like escaping the city to seek out beautiful open spaces. I guess I'm a country girl at heart.
In the past I've been more of an indoor gym person, but I've recently discovered that I enjoy running outside when it's 40 degrees out. I've been running along the East River most days. I put together a playlist of old and new songs to run with, and the ones I get excited about have inspired a super cheesy but maybe true theory. Like a great song, a true friend and lover should certainly put a spring in your step when you're feeling fresh and strong. More importantly, that person should be able to give you the resilience, courage, and heart to push past your shortcomings and achieve great things! Maybe we can do that for each other?
