Happy Monday Everyone!
That week-long break was super nice. I’m still not going on Facebook for a long while…its been so nice not going on there and spending hours looking at pictures of people and spending more time in His Word and gathering my thoughts together.
This past week has been very long, and not really a fun birthday week like I had hoped for. I got back from Cali on Sunday at midnight and then worked Monday 9-5 like usual. Woke up on Tuesday and did the same. Wednesday I woke up and over the past couple weeks I’ve had a lot of outside stuff on my mind.
Wednesday was by far the hardest day for me. As me and my boyfriend broke up. He is an amazing person, with a wonderful heart. There comes a time when one puts off dealing with past issues for so long that it begins to affect the relationship. I wish I didn’t have to be put in a position where I have to deal with these certain issues, but I know it will be good in the long run. It would not have been beneficial for our relationship to stay together while I struggle to find myself again and put off breaking down these walls I’ve built up from past experiences. It is just so hard having to say goodbye to someone you care about so much.
Thursday I worked 8-6, and Friday 9-7, Saturday 10-8 (10-6 Austin marathon expo, and 6-8 recruiting for vb). Sunday I worked 6-1:30 at the Austin Marathon.
I have no idea how many hours that is exactly, nor do I have any desire to count, but its a lot to do on top of studying and celebrating my birthday (this past Friday). I’m extremely exhausted from a long week at work and a very emotional week on top of that.
However, working the marathon has inspired me to really get started on my bucket list.
One of the items on my bucket list is to run a marathon. So, I have signed up to run the Rock N’ Roll Marathon on June 5 in San Diego, CA with one of the most beautiful women, and one of my best friends, Laura.
I got my training plan from Runnersworld, and I’m doing the intermediate training program. I know I have never run a marathon and should be doing the beginners, BUT, it looked too easy…a lot of it is already stuff that I do and I really want to CHALLENGE myself.
HAVE YOU EVER RUN A MARATHON?
IF SO, WHAT IS SOME ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE ME?
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR BUCKET LIST ITEMS?
I’m off to go rest and enjoy my day off from work. Tomorrow I’m getting back into the hustle and bustle of things, and the fact that I’m feeling a little under the weather means that rest is very much NEEDED!
Have a wonderful day/week! So happy to be back, I can’t wait to catch up on everyone’s bloggies!
