What a few weeks it’s been, whew! I have been super busy with work, interviews, you name it! Where do I start!
Well, last I let you know I was interviewing for different positions at several places. I got a call back for one, and found out last weekend that I got one! You are now looking at the new fit expert in the shoe department at Road Runner Sports!
I’m super excited to start learning so much more about running, running shoes and the community this company has! Thank goodness I just bought two new pairs of running shoes to show how much more dedicated I am about running again! Remember these?!
I’ll soon be able to tell you ever detail about these two shoes…but for now, I’ll stick with how awesome they are and how they have made running so great lately! So great to the point where I have been excited to go to my Tuesday Speed/Hill Workouts with the local running club and upping my miles to train for a half marathon! I finally decided which one I’m going to run too! It’s local and I’m super excited since it supports a great cause!
I thought about doing one before that but I have several trips I’m going on that will hinder my training and even now makes me a little nervous! But, it’ll be great and I’m sure I’ll have fun!
And what better than to fuel for some awesome running, right? I have been frequenting the new and local Whole Foods in the area and boy, so freaking dangerous. I have been on a breakfast food kick as I’ve been in a rut eating cereal for the past few months, but have discovered a few other things! I have been eating a variety of bagels from local bakeries like it’s going out of style, but also these vegan scones I found at WF. OMG I die I want one right now! I have had the chocolate chip, carrot raisin and some other mixed one they have had in stock. Here’s the chocolate chip:
I also found an awesome little local bakery that has some vegan goodies too! I met the owners of Sticky Fingers yesterday and they were so wonderful and energetic! I purchased their popular morning glory muffin and hot damn, I am in trouble this place being so close. Maybe if I ever get treats there I’ll make myself walk…make up for eating all these sweets! HAHA!
But let me say, there has been a fair share of chocolate consumption from all the stress I’ve been under. I had a project for one of my classes that had me stumped for DAYS (no joke) and by Monday night when I finished it at almost midnight I was absolutely exhausted. Guess that’s what happens when you take graduate school courses, right? Goodness gracious!
Honey feels my exhaustion, because it means I have been staring at the computer instead of at her. This is one pissed off cat, who now has decide that the only way to get my attention is if she bites me…on the face. No joke, takes my cheeks and jaw line and bites! Little rascal!
But, in the midst of all of that, I did take a trip back up to the redwoods to train a new technician. It was so wonderful to be back in the woods and really, the redwoods. There is just this feeling I get when I am surrounded by trees and well, trees!
Oh, and I did take some time this weekend to appreciate the outdoors with the Aloha Festival taking part at the local beach park! Whit got his shave ice that was as authentic as home and I got to watch the hula dancers! Of course we watched some surfers for the surf contest and saw some of Whit’s friends.
Anyone been to any festivals lately!? I know apple season is right upon us so there are bound to be some going on soon!!!!
