It’s official!

It wasn’t easy forking over the money for this, but I am now so excited that I finally took the step. I’m already looking forward to spending a lot of time in coffee shops studying — just like during grad school!

I’m pretty sure that I can’t read another “went for my first run of 2013” Facebook post/tweet/blog entry. It makes me too sad. Even though I’ve run a few times since I’ve gotten sick, it’s been made clear to me that I shouldn’t try that again for a few days. It’s even harder since these showed up today:

I love Running Warehouse.

Not the cutest shoes, but I'm excited!

NEW RUNNING SHOES! BEST THING EVER!

They feel a little big (between where my big toe ends and the top of the shoe) but I’ll wait to test ’em out on the treadmill before exchanging them for a smaller size.

Registration opened yesterday for the Point Bock Run — one of my favorite races of the year. And I saw a Facebook post this afternoon that the race filled today! Glad I got registered right away ๐Ÿ™‚ The Bock Run is race #4 for 2013. I need nine more for my #13in2013 challenge.

Hope everyone had a not-too-painful return to work/reality today! Oh, and thanks for all of the great input on my protein powder dilemma ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I was about to embark on some marathon blogging about Christmas, New Year’s and my first run of 2013…… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Good luck with pursuing your personal training certification and getting back out there and running! I also loved the student days of going to Starbucks all day long and studying. When I first was teaching, I would go and do marking instead.

  2. Ha, no, they are not exactly beauties. ๐Ÿ™‚ At least you got blue — I bought mine from RW on Black Friday, but all they had super cheap was purple/yellow! Gah!!

  3. Money well spentโ€ฆ congrats, Hyedi! You’ll be awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ If you need a coffee shop study partner, let me knowโ€ฆ I’m always game for some study / writing time ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. You’re going for the Ace cert? nice! I haven’t decided which one I want yet. It’s between Ace, NASM and NSCA…my school teaches us the core concepts for all of them.
