Getting back into the swing of things

I have been home about four weeks now. I can't believe it has been so little time. I feel like it has been months since I was teaching a workshop or strolling through the park...I really really miss it. The good news is that I have been keeping my eyes open for cheap tickets. If all goes well I should be headed back in 28 weeks. Yeah I am a nerd I know, but it seems that I left something down there.

And I think that I should have taken more pictures! I am starting to go through mine and I honestly feel like I have most of them memorized. That can be either good or bad. I'm not sure which.

I started my hard core marathon training yesterday evening. It was funny because I had to get a physical for work yesterday and found out I had gained back a lot of the weight I had lost in Chile, so I find myself strangely remotivated to get into my training habits. I am running with a good friend of mine who ran track and cross country in high school and college so I figure he'll know what is safe and what not. Yesterday we put in 4 miles on the tredmill. It felt good, but my legs are a little sore today. I'm sure today will not be near as much fun.

I am learning how determined I can be. Lately I have been having to excercise a lot of self control and realizing that certain things in life are decisions, not circumstances. We have to committ to being committed. It isn't something that just happens. So my training and other events in my life that will be revealed at a later date are proving to me that I can do 'all things in Christ which strengthen {me}' and I feel great about it.

So good news blogging world, you will be updated on my marathon adventure!

And a side note, though I still have one more class to finish before the end of the month, I currently have a 4.0 for last semester. Yeah...I am STOKED!


  1. Way to go Miss Motivation! I am super impressed. I hope you find what you left in Chile. I bet it's pretty important! Congrats on the 4.0. Love you!

  2. Thank you for the comment and the update on your blog!!!!! I miss you girl, I am getting married in 9 days. Scott will tell you at my pictures on monday-- I was a bit of a baby.
