Speaking of passing the time away I am planning to walk a 1/2 marathon in October. You have to be able to walk at 16 minute mile pace or a bus will pick you up if you are unable to maintain that pace. Talk about an incentive to walk quickly. I walked 5 miles yesterday at an average pace of 14.40 and that was with some nice hills thrown in. It will be a new experience to walk in a "race" since in my life before IF (infertility) I was a runner. I've actually run 4 1/2 marathons (with a finish time always just under 2 hours) and I ran the Marine Corp marathon in Washington DC in 2006. Now I'm off to pass a little time away.

Stop Thinking. This was the advice I got from my acupuncturist yesterday after I told her everything I was going through right now. I told her that I felt discouraged and sad about how bad my uterus was and the fact that I have to do 3 months of menopause. She said that I needed to trust the doctors and spend the next 3 months reading books and maybe planning a trip. She also said that I could talk to her when I felt bad. Another friend of mine suggested going to see a therapist but I don't think I'm at that stage just yet. I'm not really sure what anyone could say to me to make me feel better or enlighten me. It is what it is. I've just entered menopause and I need to find a way to make the next 3 months pass by quickly.
