The Latest

Last workout was Saturday - 00:36:27, the trashmore figure eight loop.

I can't wait until these classes are over. I jsut want to get back to my burning, music, reading, and training. Gardening would be nice as well as the rest of the yardwork, too.

Over Two Years Later!!! wow

I can't believe I haven't touched this account in forever...

Sooo much has happened. Here are a few highlights in the past years:

01. moved out of apartment
02. learned to ride motorcycle
03. the proposal
04. out of debt
05. working on master's degree
06. many races
07. waaay over weight - gotta fix that, health is really waning
08. kempo - sooo psyched about this; hope to get 1st dan in that style :D
09. new weapons
10. first mac

My main goal right now is to focus on my health. With teaching computer classes and self defense, I lack the necessary time to work on my degree. My rock n roll time is terrible. I need to get back down below 3 hours. Right now, I need to get down below 3 1/2 hours.

Last weekend, we ran the trashmore loop: 37 minutes flat. That's gotta change.

Woohoo! Back in Training!

Over the past few weeks, I have taken two trips to the boardwalk. The first time I was only able to walk approximately 3 miles. The second trip was spent walking the entire boardwalk 2x: starting in the middle, going to one end then to the other, and back to the middle.

Tonight was the third trip and training has definitely started again! I am so glad to be back running. I ran the same trip that I did the last time. That boardwalk is so not 3 miles. It is more like just over two and a half. I ran it in 01:05:39.

My training partner walked it in 01:28:22. Had his blister not been bothering him, we would have tried to walk a full six miles. Oh well, don't want to hurt ourselves before the race!

Goal: continue training on weekends in addition to the few times during the week.

A Good While

Well, school has definitely begun and I am back into the swing of things. Since my last post the Rock N' Roll half marathon took place and I am pleased to announce I achieved my goal; I broke 3 hours. Granted, I only broke it by 27 seconds...but hey, I still broke it. My goal for next year is to break 2 hours and 50 minutes. I think I can do it.

Training has pretty much stopped due to the busy-ness of everyday life. I will have to schedule some time for running, probably in the mornings before school??? Will have to see once life sorta calms down.

Some other news: I may be moving into a house within the next three months - still waiting on the realtor.

Not much more to say. The day has been busy and full of complaints that I am not in much of a mood to write.

Oh no! School!!

My last weekend of fun...poo. I don't know what I'm going to do when school starts. I'm not going to have the same amount of time that I do now.

Been a while

Just thought I would update this since it's been a while. I haven't been able to do much training because I've been instructing. School is about to start and I've also been preparing for that.

Summer is coming to a close, this has been a great summer, one of my best. So many new experiences, not enough time!

To recap:
hospital stays, sleeping outdoors, almost "dying" on long road trips, allergic to dogs, twins, finding him, playing overnight, tennessee, kung fu panda and k9, rainforest cafe and opry mills mall, the hotel room, old people, eye candy, "I know him!", so called camping (but great resort), gonna have to find wetsuits, falling for him, the ring, more of the hospital, and playing!

I am so not ready for school; I am having too much fun!

What a fun experience! I hope to be nominated again in a couple years to attend the event once more. So many martial artists of various styles willing to socialize, share techniques, and just plain have fun!

Other than the airplane ride and my camera breaking, the trip was definitely a unforgettable experience. Even if I get nominated again, the company, the dressing up, and the hotel room could never be duplicated.

To top it off, I received numerous compliments on my dress - from complete strangers!

Still battling an enormous headache, so I will post some pictures of the event at a later time.
