And belated Happy Easter. I could give you a run down of my weekend which included a brutal 11.69 mile run (the first 6 was great, the second almost 6, not so much.... this is why recovery is important kids) and a class with my gal Brittany over at Studio Fit... but instead, I will just give you this video from this 9 year old phenom. Fish sticks.
I know, I know, I just gave you a Monday edition of what I am reading, but I had saved this article to read for awhile and finally did and think it needs to be shared. I've had many conversations with people recently about how you decide on what you would actually like to do and go after it. It's not always as easy as some bloggers make it out to be. Yes, you follow your heart and maybe that thing doesn't work out. Or maybe you can't afford rent for awhile and that's kind of a big deal. Or maybe you have to spend less money on Nike and Lululemon tights (but don't you remember the days when you wore strictly Old Navy anyway?). There is a fine line of following your heart and landing on your feet and following your heart and being hungry, but even if you can only make your happy thing part-time, it's more important to just be happy right? The 5 Biggest Regrets People Have Before They Die
There is a lot going on in my life right now. Which is true of basically everyone. And as much as I feel like a lot of things are falling apart, a lot of things also seem to be coming together. So to focus on the good... 1) I am pleased to say that I was chosen as a RAM ambassador this year which means that I will be repping the race series and Fleet Feet at various expos.
2) I've been picking up lots of shifts over at Coop. All this running around has me somewhat exhausted but I am gaining valuable and awesome experience. I work in Downsize which is a program for folks who have lots of weight they want to lose. I have a few regulars who are awesome and strong and have beautiful form. In the past week we've also had some newbies: one woman who has never worked out before and a 62 year old woman who doesn't need to lose weight but wants to. They both require lots of attention and modifications but they are both trying so hard and I respect them so much for joining the program. This all means that I need to look up some more modifications of course, but it's pretty darn cool. I only began my fitness journey a few years ago but it's easy to forget how it feels when you start. It's hard. It hurts. It's somewhat embarrassing. But that all goes away so fast.
If you had asked me a few years ago where I'd be in a few years this would not have been the answer but I'm so glad it is.
