Things are finally settling down around here and I’m beginning to find some balance. It honestly took much longer than I thought to adjust after the move and figure out how to manage school, work, blogging and a corneal abrasion that won’t go away!! Sometimes I’ve had to sit back and realize I am not Superwoman (although my Dad did name me after Wonder Woman Lynda Carter.) I had to accept that something has to give when you’re overloaded and adjusting to living on your own for the first time in 4 years. But I’m back and although my eye is acting up again, it is healing and I am getting everything back on track.
So let’s talk fun stuff! Here is what I’ve been up to lately:
I Dissected a brain last night for Anatomy class and was geeking out along with another classmate who is a fellow Grey’s Anatomy lover. I realize I may be in the minority here but cutting is fun! The only thing missing was McDreamy and scrubs. Mmmm.
I get scared at times when I think about how long the journey will be, but moments like these remind me of what I’m working towards and make it worthwhile.
In other news, I Tried out the new Kinvara 4 viziglo shoes I won from Fitblog LA during my runs for Every Mother Counts Charity. They are fantastic! picture glowing orbs of lighted feet streaking through the air as you fly street to street in the dark and you’ll get a good idea of what it’s like to wear these. I’m a total night owl so these are a great way to stay safe when I run outside at odd hours.
Oiselle is doing a challenge this month that is helping to raise money through Charity app. It’s really easy and free to participate if you want to help out. Just download the app on your smartphone and run or walk as usual with your phone. Charity app will donate money for every mile you complete. Easy Peasy.
My Announcement…..Sort of 😉
Destiny is bringing me to one of the most amazing places for my first marathon. After 2 registrations that I had to back out of because of some obstacles and personal reasons, I am finally FINALLY going to be running 26.2 miles!! This time feels right and I have got to believe that ” 3rd time’s a charm” means something.
Can you guess where I’m heading to?? I promise to share all the details tomorrow I know, I know, I’m such a tease. I’m dying to tell you so here’s a baby hint because I really can’t help it:
One more day till the long weekend!!
Are you training for any races?
Ever had to post pone a half or full marathon?
Do you have a pet that makes you smile??
