A Little of This, A Little of That

Today I wasn't able to come up with much to write about. Because of this, this will simply be a hodgepodge of information. I apologize in advance for my ramblings.

Wednesday was the first day I purposely did not do some kind of physical activity in I can't remember when. Even my rest days have been active rest days for the past month or so. I am going stir crazy after only one day. I don't know what to do with myself.

I am in the midst of working out a plan for myself. That at least will keep me busy for the next few days, hopefully. I will be sharing what I come up with in the next few days so stay tuned. I'm interested to see how these workouts turn out.

Wednesday night I joined a few women in my church for a new Bible study. It has been quite some time since I was part of one. It is only 5 weeks long, so it is not a long term commitment. We are studying a woman in the Bible each week. I am excited about it. It is something I definitely need lately.

Having the Bible study does fill up my week nights quite a bit though. Tuesday nights we have planning meetings for the church we attend. (Some friends of ours are in the beginning stages of starting a church and we decided to join them along for the ride.) Wednesday is the Bible study. Thursday is my yoga class. Oh well. At least the Bible study is only for a few weeks.

Kristy over at Runaway Bridal Planner did a runner spotlight on me today. I was very honored that she would feature me on her blog. So go check out her blog.

Also, if you haven't already, there are a number of ways to follow me and my blog. There are links on the side that will connect you in just about any way you'd like. Email, twitter, facebook, bloglovin, networked blogs. I am just getting into all sorts of social media recently. I am amazed by the support of other running bloggers. However, some of you need to come out of lurker status. You know who you are. Give me some love people. I promise I don't bite.

Just a reminder, because you know this post is just a rambling of thoughts today, if you'd like to register for the See Jane Run 1/2 Marathon or 5K in Seattle this July you can receive 10% off with this coupon code: SJRSEAAMB13A. I unfortunately won't be able to go. I will, however, be doing their triathlon in October. I can't wait.

Just gotta keep moving!

Have you done a See Jane Run Event? What is your next event?

Do you have backup workouts in case of injury?

What is your favorite song right now? (You know cause this whole post is completely random.)
That's a tough one right now. But I'm really digging Radioactive by Imagine Dragons


  1. Finally getting to check out your blog!! My computer at work blogs all .blogspot sites so I never get to look at it! That bible study sounds good, I wish I had something like that once a week to refocus! I'm just now figuring out all these ways to get involved in the running blogger community and already I feel like the support is incredible!! I can't wait to dive in even deeper!

    1. I'm glad you were finally able to check me out! I'm looking into possibly changing my site in the near future so you'd be able to read from work then! I am looking forward to the Bible study. It is something that I really need. And yes the community has been really great!

I'd love to hear what you have to say! Otherwise, I feel like I'm talking to a wall, much like I do with my students. :)

Weekend in San Diego

I was looking forward to this past weekend for a number of reasons and a number of weeks. First, it marked the beginning of my Spring Break. I cannot tell you how much of a needed break this is. To start the break off right, J.R. and I packed up our bikes (and some clothes) and headed down to San Diego for the weekend.

Saturday J.R. arranged for us to ride with a former coworker of his. We knew he is quite a bit slower than we are, but we simply wanted a nice, relaxing ride. What we did not know was that this would be the worst.ride.ever.
I want to preface things by saying I know things could have been far worse. I, also, know that if this was my worst ride, I should consider myself lucky. However, all that does not change how horribly catastrophic this ride turned out.
Problem #1 should have become very readily apparent the minute we started. J.R.’s former coworker chose the route. This man is not a very experienced rider, because of this he shys away from the road. That’s fine, however…

Surprises: The Good and the Bad

Solving Life's Questions

Today's prompt was:

If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Now that is a difficult question. So often we put so much of who we are into the job we do. I am no exception. Much of my sense of being, of who I am rests in my career. I believe much of this has to do with my chosen profession. Teaching is definitely not for the faint of heart. 

However, I also believe this has to do with the fact that I feel this is more of a calling. It is what I was created to do. This makes my job an essential part of who I am.

It is no wonder when I lost my job a few years ago, I was seriously tested. The lack of income was a struggle and hardship. However, my ego and my self-esteem took a major hit as the years came and left leaving me unable to find a teaching job. It was then I was first met with the question of if I'm not teaching, then who am I.

I came to this conclusion, I am still a teacher. Even without a classroom to prepare les…
