Hey there, sleepy head!
Good morning! I hope you were able to sleep in a little this morning! I unfortunately did not, but it’s okay because I’m here getting ready to chat with you fine folks!
These posts are some of my favorite posts to read, so when I found out that Lynda @ Fitness Mom Wine Country, Coco @ Got 2 Run 4 Me and Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner host a Virtual Coffee (or Tea in my situation) linkup once a month, I couldn’t wait to join in! So snuggle up with a cozy blanket and your favorite warm beverage of choice and let’s get to it!
If we were having tea, I’d tell you that… my life is certainly not where I thought it would be today if you would have asked me 8 months ago, but it’s not a bad thing, like I thought it was at the time. Eight months ago I assumed that I would have a new job and would be making the move up north to live with my then boyfriend. Now, I’m getting ready to start a kick butt job that I’m stoked about and moving to Seattle solo and I’m okay with that. It means I get to pick exactly where I want to live and exactly how I want to decorate, without having to compromise. Not to shabby of a deal if you ask me. What I will say though is that I’ve never lived further than 20 minutes away from my family in my life, so the thought of living over an hour away is a little intimidating.
If we were having tea, I’d tell you that… getting ready to start a new job at a huge company that I’ve been interviewing for on and off for 8 months in a completely different field than I’ve ever worked in before is also slightly intimidating. I’ve been working in my industry for the last 7 years (since before I even graduated from college), so this is a huge change for me. I definitely think it’s the right move for me though and I see it really turning into something great.
And on a lighter note…
If we were having tea, I’d tell you that… I’m beyond excited that I am slowly able to increase my running mileage and was able to log my first pain free 1.5 mile run this week! I can’t wait to continue to safely increase my mileage and get back into racing! I see some shiny new race bling in my near future! 😀
If we were having tea, I’d tell you that… I may have bitten off a little more than I can chew when I said I would ride my first 25 mile bike ride with a group of friends in April. I tried riding my spiffy new bike for the first time this week and couldn’t even make it down the sidewalk without falling. I asked my dad if he would put training wheels on it for me and he laughed. I guess that means no then…
If we were having tea, I’d tell you that… I seriously have the best friends and family a girl could ever ask for.
Questions of the Day:
If we were having a real-life tea/coffee date, what would you tell me?
What are your plans for today?
