Wednesday Rambles

As I sit right now and wait patiently (not really) for some big work news I am anxious, nervous, excited, and somber. I am one of those people that bite their nails when anything stressful goes on and lets just say they have been a little short this week.

I have applied for this one program for the past 3 years and could really change my career for the better. It could put me in an entirely different place in my practice. I work in the finance world with mostly men and can say it has been a challenge. I try to explain this to the boyfriends who even use to work at my same company but he doesn't see or understand when I try to explain. This concept is difficult to articulate so this past week when I came across this video I found it VERY interesting.

First and foremost I am not a crazy feminist but this really did make me think. This video is from Sheryl Sandberg who is the COO of Facebook.

If you have a good 10-15 minutes I would say it is worth a watch. What are you thoughts?

First Half Marathon

The time is here!

I cannot believe my training is done and it is GAME TIME. Excited to see some old friends and spend some time out of town. 13.1 miles never thought this would be something I would do yet along want to do. I have had a deep tissue massage and a chiropractic adjustment and am feeling the best I have felt in a LOOOONG time. This month I also participated in Diet Bet with Running With The Girls and lost 4% of my body weight. There is nothing like big pants to make you feel good about yourself.

I can finally say it. I am ready, I feel ready, I am ready.


Also my goal for the race is to take a good looking photo who would have thought this would be near impossible? Has anybody ever taken a good photo? Here is one of my worst glad to know there is a club to join called Seriously Ugly Race Pics and they have posted my little gem.
Happy Running!
