Why will September be fun you ask?! Because it’s my birthday month people! I am going to turn the ripe ol’ age of 28.
I think 28 is going to be a big and good year for me. I don’t quite know what it is, but I can feel it. I mean, what not to like about September? All our favorite TV shows come back with new seasons!! Right?! HAHAHAHA.
Ok, anyhow. 28. What am I going to do in my 28th year? Well, I’ve got a few things in mind... But I’ll tell you about those when I turn 28 in seventeen days.
For now, I’ll tell you what I’ve been up to…because as much as it doesn’t amount to much, I feel like I have no time for anything! Boo!
School work has been keeping me super busy. Two classes is a serious amount of work right now. Maybe it’s because I’m still not in the groove, but I’m blaming the holiday off so things are off by a day. Yikes! Honey is not a fan of where my attention is, and is trying to prevent my sitting on the computer:
Well, I got a new version of my favorite running shoes this week. I had been wearing the Mizuno Wave Elixir 7’s since last October and this summer I decided to try out the new Adidas Energy Boost, which I’m loving, but the Mizuno’s help keep my stride and foot fall correct, so I had to buy another (I blew out the 7’s). So I decided to go for the less bright but still colorful blue version of the 8’s. And I LOVE them!
Not only do these babies help me keep great posture while I run (even when I get tired) but they helped (along with a great pair of insoles from Road Runner Sports) keep my piriformis injury at bay and increase my speed! It has been so so so exciting to watch myself get faster as I improve so much about my running “chi” (I read the book, Chi Running, and highly recommend it) and I’m hoping that as I train with this running group for long runs and speed work I’ll get even faster! A girl can dream! And what better conditions can I ask for than these, right?
I’m sorry for all of those Californian’s that are crying right now about the heat, but I’m fortunate enough to…not be. Living near the beach has some awesome perks, and that means sea breeze and lower temps. I am one happy happy girl!
But not only has running been going well (Ok, when I am running, motivation right now is…lacking) but I have also been going through some interviews to see if I can get a job! I have had two in the past two days and let me tell you, I am always absolutely wiped after these things! I haven’t done any face to face, let alone group interviews in over 5 years so I was stressing out a little bit. I’m trying not to him and ha about all the things I could have done or should have said because I can’t do anything about it now. I just wait and hope that next week I hear some good news!
otherwise been busy just with school and keeping up with life! I am heading out of town to do some extra work up in Santa Cruz again for a few days so I’m excited to be in the redwoods again! I seriously miss those big ol’s trees! Then before I know it, another week will have gone by and it’ll be my birthday! What should I do?! I hardly ever celebrate so we’ll see if I can come up with anything for this year. Suggestions?! What did you do for your 28th? And if you’re not 28 yet…then, 27? Or 26? You get the idea…haha!
