Running Instead of the Super Bowl

I'm assuming that I ran on the treadmill during the first half of the Super Bowl, since the half time commentary on FB came after I was finished. It's not that I don't care about the Super Bowl... Well, actually I don't, so I'll move on.
EMT refresher day 2. Still pretty fun. Did two really fun activities today, including a practice MCI (Mass Casualty Incident). I was involved in triage; 56 patients, and I had to sort through about 33 of them to figure out their critical status. Made a few mistakes and learned how I could organize it better, but it was actually really fun. Later in the day we broke down into groups of 4-5 people and went through 18 different medical scenarios which we had a set time (way too short!) to finish. Surprised myself on how much I do actually know. My group (which was made up of people on different services with different backgrounds) pretty much got every patient figured out correctly, so that helps boost my confidence that I do know more than I think I do.
After class, I picked up John from my friend who had been watching him all day for me. He had had a really good time there, so that was good to hear. Came home and snowshoe ran the dogs up Heavenly Hill in the dark with a headlamp. I hadn't broken the trail up since the last snow storm so it was thick, soft snow the whole way. Brutal, but short, run to the top where I stopped and enjoyed standing in the moonlight for a few minutes. The run down on all of that fresh snow was awesome. I just flew. So much fun. Once back at the house, I jumped on the treadmill for 6 miles at a decent pace. Listened to my "Pump" playlist. ha ha. Two of my dogs came down to the basement to stare at me for the last two miles because they were hungry. Pretty annoying and I almost kicked them out, but I didn't feel like stopping. And that pretty much wraps up my day. Back at the refresher in the morning.
