So, I haven’t been here in a while. I’m going to try this route again. Let’s give you the quick updates:
- got engaged! Woo!
- marathon training for my first marathon October 9, 2016
- working on my teaching license (1 test down, 2 to go)
Those are the main updates in my life. Pretty big life changes going on here. Let’s get on with update 1!
We got engaged on our trip to North Carolina. I knew it was coming but I was still totally surprised when it happened. He proposed in a blackberry patch when it was just us. It was perfect. We started wedding planning and set the date for September 22, 2017. I’m sure time will fly.
Update 2: Marathon training. Have any of y’all ever trained for a marathon? It is rough. I’m a month out today (holy crap!) and I’m exhausted. I don’t know how my dang legs are going to carry on. I’m running on the Hanson plan, which has me only running a max of a 16 mile long run. I’m heading out on that in the AM
Update 3: Getting my teaching license has been a whirlwind of decisions from getting a secondary bachelors in English, to thinking I was going to get a Master degree then changing my mind, to now I am still getting a Bachelor in English (slowly) but I am going to get my teaching credentials taken care of as well. I will be starting an Educator Preparation Program in Spring after I pass my English Subject Area exam. Very exciting stuff. I cannot wait to pursue this path. It’s always been a dream of mine and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Those are my quick updates. Lots has happened, lots to come. Hopefully lots of blogging as well. Looking forward to having y’all along for the ride!
