Summer’s Coming

summer begins quote

Wow! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted. The spring has flown by and summer is on it’s way. I’m closing in on my 8th year of teaching music, and just had my final choir performance of the school year last night. I truly love putting on musical performances; I always get teary-eyed when I look up and see my kids singing their hearts out. It makes all of the practicing and hard work worth it.


Some events/happenings since my last blog post:

We went to cheer on the athletes at Ironman Texas and it was an absolute blast! So much fun to watch it from the other side, and also to meet our Big Sexy teammates. Of course, many inspirational people to motivate me to want to sign up for it again….we’ll see about 2018.

My sister graduated from college! We’re celebrating with a big shindig this weekend.

This past weekend Mike had an Advanced TRX Instructor training in Austin. He went to work, I went to play. Was so happy to see my dear friend Jesse and get to spend a day with her gallivanting around. I treasure the time we get to spend together because she is such a close friend of mine. We were best friends in college and roommates our last year. So many hilarious memories were made, and now we’re all grown up and married, so it was special to spend time just us two.

I’ve been trying to pep up my step in my training. We are about 5 weeks out from Buffalo Springs 70.3, and starting to hit the “high volume” training workouts. It’s been a bit tricky to fit in long rides and runs, especially with this Texas heat and South Texas winds! I’m trying not to get nervous about this race, but I have never done this one, so it’s the “fear of the unknown”. Actually, I don’t want to use the word fear, I’d rather put a positive spin on it and say that I’m “blissfully ignorant” about the course ahead of me. Sometimes its better to not know too much about what’s ahead of you.

Happy to have a 3 day weekend, and then the countdown is on until June 7, our last work day until summer!
