Its been a while since I've posted real confessions. I know, you all have been dying to know what is in this seedy little brain of mine.
I posted Wednesday about being nervous about teaching others the sport that has come naturally for me. Still nervous but definitely in a different perspective now then I was then. I think part of my concern is that people will show up at Fleet Feet with expectations that night and I won't be able to deliver. I thankfully have enough people who have volunteered to either help me or be my friendly face in the crowd, I should be okay. Public speaking is not the issue here, that's for sure. I do it all the time.
I've not been traveling for the last few weeks for work and I love it. Today, I got up at 4:45 AM, heading to PAI for TRX/Yoga combo, came home and spent the entire day in the workout clothes I wore. Yup, I am a special kind of smelly now. I guess I'll take a shower before bed so I can be less smelly tomorrow for my 10 at 6:30AM!
I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Yup, last time I checked, I am already grown up with a car payment, a mortgage, a marriage certificate & a little credit card debt. The job I am doing now is not fulfilling and I am doubting it ever has been. Time to make a change but I am not sure what to do. Is it too late to go back to school? I need a sugar daddy. I borrowed a friend's NASM Physical Trainer book and I definitely found it interesting and a route I might want to go. It was thick and I haven't studied in years. I know I can do it but......
I am so excited about the Summer Olympics starting up next week I can't stand it. I am hopeful we'll get to see some racewalking. Keep your fingers crossed!
My first Olympic du is Sunday, July 29th. I am doing the Giant Eagle Multisport race which guarantees me a second medal for finish both this and a half marathon I did back in May. I sure hope I don't disappoint myself and DNF. I've done a lot of training so I think I am ready and even got my last brick in yesterday. I am still trying to get over the fact that I dropped a water bottle off my iFitness belt over the bridge but at least I ordered 2 more. $7 with shipping due to a random code I found online! I am excited to receive them! My 10 miler tomorrow will stink with just one bottle but I'll get over it. May just use my crappy belt instead.
I sold my entry to the first Color Run being held in Columbus because of MIT commitments tomorrow. Am I crazy? The more I thought about it, the less I wanted to do it. When I saw someone post about needing a bib for a friend from out of town and how easy it was to transfer to her, I did it. I am not regretting it until I see my team's pictures. It'll be awesome fun! I'll be with MIT for 10 miles, a celebration of 11 years of MIT with pancakes & a few clinics at the store and then they are giving us a coach certification class from 1-6. I sure hope I make the Farmer's Market at some point too!
I am extraordinarily sad about the shootings that happened early this morning in Colorado and I have been praying all day for the families. I am sure we'll hear much more as the weeks go on but I will never understand how humans kill humans. It just makes me sick to think of what those people experienced today. I am so thankful for my easy day in comparison.
Come on, be honest. Share with me in the comments whether or not you know what you want to be when you grow up.
Any advice for my first multisport event?
