I honestly had no idea what to blog about this afternoon. I’ve so far only left my house to walk Bailey, I haven’t worked out yet, I haven’t eaten anything exciting, I haven’t had any blog-worthy epiphanies. (Or any non blog-worthy epiphanies either.) Ali suggested I think about some fun stuff coming up, and I’m in a slightly better mood already.
I’m going on a hot air balloon ride tomorrow for a blogger event with Hershey. (Yes, like the chocolate.) I’m equally terrified and excited. Flying in a big, sturdy plane terrifies me, so I am sure this will, too. But do one thing a day that scares you, right? I have a feeling it will be well worth the fear.
I’m going sailing with Ashley and Bo on Friday. There was a Groupon a few months ago, and I bought it fully intending to go alone and look for cute sailing boys, before Ashley told me her and Bo also bought a Groupon. They’ve been informed they will be playing wingman and lady for me.
I’m excited to run 13 miles this Saturday. I haven’t run that long since I ran the More/Fitness Half in April. Thirteen miles is an incredibly legit distance, that makes me feel like I’m really training for a marathon, and not just running a lot. That long run will be followed by a bagel, obviously, and then some fabulous outdoor birthday celebrations for friends.
Maine! I’m going there in a few weekends to see Lizzy and my friend Lindsay, who’s back from Hawaii for a few days. I will also be running the Freeport Half while there, meeting Joy and it will be awesome.
There will be lobster rolls involved.
HLS! I will be speaking about how to use social media to network and make friends, and I’m excited. You know, as long as I don’t throw up all over myself first.
I will have 17 miles on my marathon training schedule, and I’m sure there will be other marathon-training bloggers to run with in Philly. I’m excited.
I’m also hoping that sometime in the next month, I will have an awesome new job to tell you about. Fingers crossed, okay?
What are you excited about? And do you have any advice for staying sane during a long job search??
Also–my running coach has agreed to do a running Q&A here on the blog. So, leave a comment with any burning running questions you’re dying to have answered by a coach!
