I apologize

I have not taken any pictures. Alex left for Indiana Thursday and I’ve been missing him every since. He will come home hopefully tonight!!

We got a lot of snow yesterday. I would estimate about 4 or more inches. So obviously my workout was done in the gym. I did 3 miles @ 8:20 pace and had to stop because I got this chest pain. I’ve been getting it a lot and it’s very upsetting.

Today I have to do 5 miles. I was supposed to race tomorrow but since the weather was bad, I didn’t go home. So I’m basically MIA in that series because I missed 2 out of the 5 races. Hopefully that still qualifies me for something and hopefully they will send it to me?

Oh well. I mainly signed up for that one because of the sweet asics jacket and long sleeve.

Exciting News!

I might be double majoring with Family Consumer Science Education and also Dietetics. I have a lot of nutrition classes and the one that really sparked my interest was Sports Nutrition. I absolutely love it! Last semester my nutrition teacher stated how she started as a FACS teacher and then went into Dietetics. So I sent her an email asking about it and how I could do the same. She’s absolutely thrilled and said that not only will Dietetics be a good backup but it will broaden the things I can teach if I decide to make teaching my first priority. She said I would be able to teach science and health as well as the cooking and family classes. Which we all know helps a lot since most schools only have about 2 FACS teachers.

What I plan on doing?

After college I would love to move to colorado. I’ve never been but the thought of running at altitude and raising my kids at altitude gives all kinds of advantages for runners! Not that I’ll force my kids to run…but I hope they will grow up loving it. I want to either teach or be a registered dietician. I think I’d want to start being an RD to rack up some money and then once it becomes time to settle down and have children, I would move to teaching so I can be home with my kids when they are home and also have the same breaks like summer break! 😀


What are your goals for the future?

    Colorado…haha, that’s so random, but I love your reasons for it, it’s kind of sweet yet real.
    Yay for your new major goals! I’m glad you made the change to something you are truly interested in.

    My future plans: Travel more, experience more, and get a good journalistic career, and finally go to seminary school, and work full-time for my church.
    and unlike you, I don’t want to get married or have kids. Hee.

    It is so exciting to have an epiphany about the future. Sports Nutrition is very popular and I assume very interesting. I like your adventurous attitude about moving to CO – it’s beautiful there. Good luck with your studies. Dietetics is tough =)

    The double major thing sounds like a good idea. I actually plan on going back to school to get get a degree in dietetics in the next year or so. Good luck!
