The end in sight...

Ok, this week has been one of those weeks - yes, one of THOSE weeks... Work has been insane, school is coming to an end quicker than I can type (and I type pretty friggen fast!) and the stress level has been through the roof!

I have been juggling so many things for so long I wonder what will I do with myself after 8pm on May 4th (my last final will be done!)... To be honest, I don't know! I am typically always on a quest for balance, but I am either going 100 miles an hour or curled up in the fetal position...

This week for school, we had our client presentations for our Fitness Leadership class. I enjoyed this project so much, it really didn't feel like work at all... BTW, Christine, I am not just saying that so I'll get an A, I am about 99% sure Heather & I rocked it! Anyway, it really got me thinking about the future, once I finish this degree, how am I going to use my powers for good? I guess for starters, I am going to take the Health Fitness Specialist exam so I can be "Official", then I am really hoping to be able to start helping other people realize their fitness utopia... ahhh....already sounds rewarding, doesn't it?

Honestly, anything to get me out from behind this desk, where the only thing I have managed to accomplish is secretary butt... well, that's not true, I am awesome at my job but I want more... then again, don't we all? So the plotting and planning begins. The hardest part of anything is getting started. I figure once I start talking about it to people, I will be compelled to achieve it.

On a side note, I am totally stoked about my run last night! Everything just felt right, and I have managed to complete 3.1 miles with a 9:42 avg pace, this makes me want to get back outside and do it again! The baby slept from 730pm until 4am, well we woke her around 930pm for her last feeding, but I can sense my morning runs are not too far off in the horizon! Oh happy day!

So another day in the books, only one more assignment due for my online class, it's due on Saturday, and then my last final... and then... and then... well I'm not sure! No race this weekend, 5k on May 7th & Mud Run on the 14th... and I am sure somewhere in between will be yard work and laundry!


  1. Heather G. posted a link to your blog. I am one of her teammates. I love your story, and admire you for getting out there and running soon after your baby. It took me two years to run a marathon after my second child.

  2. P.S. You won't know what to do with yourself when school is done (actually, you will be totally busy and wonder how you pulled school off). I did grad school with one child (and then two), and working full time. I would train for a Half Ironman any day rather than do that again!

  3. Thanks Kiersten! I wanted to complete a 1/2 before I was 35, but I missed the boat! I figure I can at least do 1 before I turn 36...
