Gearing up for Summer

Summer is here (finally, for those of us in New England, it took a while). Like many of you, I’m trying to keep up with a busy summer schedule. I’ve got a lot of things going on, and I’m excited about most of them.

First up, is vacation. I am looking forward to a little time spent enjoying my family and friends, and the beach.

Next up, is IamLUG! August 1 and 2 in St. Louis, MO. I am really looking forward to this. It’ll be nice to travel again after a bit of a break, and I’ve always had a great time at IamLUG. I’ll be speaking again. And attending lots of great FREE sessions. And seeing good friends. And I hear there are some fun surprises in store this year.

I saw a friend the other day, who said “I’ll see you at Lotusphere” and I realized I might not see him til January. I hope many of you can make it to IamLUG, so we don’t have to wait so long to see eachother!

Lastly, or concurrently, I’m training for a marathon. Yes, I’ll be trying to find a way to run in August in Missouri, without passing out. If you see me, hand me some water, would you?
