Bangs friend wrote about her experience with mental illness in the Friend to Friend section HERE! She is so amazing and I am so grateful for her sharing her experience with others.
I thought I would share a few random things I’ve seen on my runs over the last few months!
You never know when you are going to need a bagel or two during your drive.
I see these types of rock piles all over the trails and they always make me happy. I need to build my own one day.
Not sure how this drinking fountain keeps running all winter long.
A dad pulling his kids around on sleds… you could hear their giggles from a mile away.
My footprints running in circles on my driveway because I was .04 away from hitting the mile when I got back!
A cougar… okay, not so much random and mostly terrifying but I’m hoping I never see one on the run again. (Cougar is not in this picture, but my friends looking at it were)
Something I saw during my Peloton ride… Knox bringing me my helmet for safety:)
I love it when I see this because it means I am at my favorite running spot!
So Janae just asked if I could do a quick update on what is going on for me right now. So I am 1 year into Nurse Practioner school. It has been pretty tough to go to school and work full time at the hospital during a pandemic so my school gave me an opportunity to take a few months off before I dive back into school. I have another year of classes then I will finish off the program with full-time clinicals. Overall, I have 1.5 years left to go.
I was looking forward to kicking back for the next few months and just working my normal amounts of shifts and having a balanced life, then I received a random email saying that I signed up for a 25k trail running race in March haha. First, I thought it was a mistake, but I know Janae better than that. So we are running another race together which should be fun and she might kill me!
Thanks to all the readers who recommended the Peloton when Janae was injured, I absolutely love it when I can’t ride outside. I have been loving building your powerzone programs and it kicks my butt every time. I didn’t realize how competitive I was until we got the Peloton!! Let me know what classes are your favorite!!
He is excited… don’t let him fool you;)
Another reminder of Bangs Friend’s post!
Tell me about any random things you’ve seen on the run lately….
Has anyone ever signed you up or convinced you to run a race?
Who is in school right now?
Bagel or donut… which is supreme in your opinion?!
