Exercise is what is keeping me from hopelessness. It seems so unfair to have the program I've built up the last five years at work destroyed. I never wanted to do administration until something came along that I so deeply believed in, and now it is coming to nothing. I shouldn't complain too much, my job isn't at risk (though a 10% pay cut is likely). But I still feel like the things I care about are being stripped away from me. At least I still have my triathlon training. I got in a 19 mile bike ride with a friend today and felt so much better.
