I haven’t been talking about it much, but I was scheduled to sit for my personal training certification this past Friday. I haven’t been talking about it because quite frankly, I’m really disappointed in myself for slacking on the studying. So Thursday afternoon I was faced with a tough decision — take the exam, severely underprepared and know that it would be quite likely I’d have to retake the exam (and pay another fee) or just reschedule and go into it more prepared and pay a lesser fee (and not have to drive the hour and a half each way to the exam site). Ultimately, I decided to pay the rescheduling fee and wait until March to take the exam. So friends, you might not see me much between now and March!
On another note, I wrote a little “what I’m thankful for”-type post over at We Run This Blog — check it out! On a less serious note, here are a few of the material things I’m thankful for lately:
Stouts — especially this one. Sad note to add to this one. Really working on cutting back on my alcohol consumption (that makes it sound like I drink WAY more than I do) because it’s one of my migraine triggers and I’ve been having them frequently again. Bummer.
Urban Decay makeup setting spray — it’s an oil-control makeup setting spray and really works wonders!
All the coffee.
non-news, a little later than last year, I’m starting to take a look at races for 2014. I mean, last year at this time, I had already committed to running Ragnar Relay. But unlike last year, I’m not really itching to run again. I’ve kind of been enjoying the time off. And I’ve been loving the high intensity spin classes I’ve been taking bright and early on Tuesday mornings.
With all of that said, I just signed up to run a turkey trot tomorrow morning — maybe I’ll get to 20 races this year after all!
Happy Thanksgiving, y’all.
