I'm not quite ready to go 100% public with this news, but Peace Corps has officially decided that I'll probably go to wherever in mid-July. We're in the 'sending your updated resume to a country' & 'can you deal with lots of people dying of HIV/AIDS?' (HUGE hint, I think, there) portion of the placement process. It is SUCH a relief to know that I'll be able to give myself a little more time in London once we get back from Kosovo and that I'll have a bit more than a month to travel to say goodbye to people, take in a Proddies concert and be home for our stamp show in July (dorky, I know). As soon as I know more, I WILL let you know!
But, one of the delightful side effects of all this is that I'll still be able to do my Cancer Research Race for Life 5K this year! I was so bummed when I thought I was going to have to leave the country before I could take part. Last year was so awesome and I'm hoping to beat my time this year (I already have in training & the event's a little over a month away).
If you'd like to sponsor me, my fundraising page is at http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/joyceadams
. Thank you for all your support last year (especially Jenni who was my first amazing sponsor) and I can't wait to do it again!
