Benvenido a la Casa Blanca, Sr. Presidente

Although it's been some time since I've updated you, don't fear: I have been training and what is more, cross training. Having just returned from a glorious week in Tulum, Mexico for a Yoga retreat, I feel renewed, refreshed and ready for intense training. At the Maya Tulum retreat spot, approx 2 hours from Cancun-- relatively secluded and magical--we practiced twice a day for 1.5 hours in the morning and 2 in the evenings. The food- oh the food was so fresh and it was unlimited. I have NEVER EVER EVER in my many moons digested so much goodness! I did manage to add a run to my luxurious week in paradise between massages, yoga and the digesting of delectable course after course.

And today, I am all jazzed for the inauguration. I wanted to make sure I was able to maintain the stunning physique I sculpted while doing yoga on the beach and so I got up and did a quick run around the block, easing my way in to running in the snow and ice. And I have a witness, because despite all the nasty drivers pushing me off the road (you must run in the road for best traction because people don't shovel their sidewalks well), a friend who we'll call, 'G' saw me go by near Powder House Square. Yes, part of this training includes celebrity sitings.

Even so, if you failed to see me this morning, you might be able to stream some inaugural footage via the Internet, the BBC News or what have you.
