Plunging over the Cliffs of Insanity in my scrubs and running shoes.

This blog is my attempt at mitigating some of the anxiety that is mercilessly inflicted upon me by my job (emergency nursing) and my favorite hobby (running).  No, “Fartlek” is not some derogatory name by which I refer to my patients (I have better, much more creative terms for that!).  A fartlek is Swedish for “speed training” or “distance training” (I really can’t remember, but does it really matter?  Both of them will ultimately leave you in a sweaty heap, counting the minutes until you are done, when you will finally be able to rip that saturated sports bra off and indulge in some well-deserved ETOH).
