Easy Run Day

First, let me tell you about the latest giveaway I entered (because I LOVE these things!): Running with Whit is the Hostess with the Mostest for this one, and it's for the book Delivering Happiness (link takes you to Amazon.com to read all about it). Entry is easy as pie, and you don't even have to be her follower, but you might as well because she totally rocks the multisport blog scene. :-)

In other news, I got the job I was interviewing for - yay!!! I'm super excited because it's my first job in the fitness industry (I've been a preschool teacher for the last five years, talk about your career changes). I decided while looking for a job that I wasn't going to settle for "just a job." I wanted to pursue something that I could feel passionate about, and pretty much the only thing that fit the bill was in the exercise/nutrition/coaching field. My new position seems like it's going to be a really perfect fit for me.

It's strange, though, because I haven't had a new job in so many years, I'd sort of forgotten what it feels like to learn all new information, all new names, all new everything. So, I'm feeling a little stress from that. In addition, there was some household stress over the last few days and it led up to one of those mornings where I couldn't tell if I was running...or running away! LOL. I tell ya what, though, this is why I love to run so much; I could feel the worries pouring out of my skin with the sweat. The farther I went, the less tension there was in my shoulders. My head started off cloudy and came back clear. Aaaaaaaah. 4.3 miles, 7:56 pace.

Here's wishing you all a happy-running and stress-free day!
