Oh, Martha….you knowI love a challenge and being called out and such…*sigh*
#1 – Virtual Races – I am just loving the idea of running without the anxiety of the crowds and the tendency to push harder than one should causing burnout. I do miss the cheering of a sidelong crowd – but I feel so much more comfortable with the timer and myself. Plus I think this is my way to protest not being able to run with my girls….Stay tuned as I think that I am going to host a virtual race series!!!
#2 – Running Blogs – I think it is so awesome to connect with someone based on a mutual interest. I have been able to find these blogs and share them and gain so much information, friendship, and funnies along the way. I couldn’t tell you how many I read over the course of a week – but I know that it takes a lot of time!! Another fun part is that Martha and I share them a lot so we can chuckle over them together!
#3 – Hours of Sunlight – Up here in Alaska we have so much light right now! I couldn’t tell you how much – I just know when I go to bed it is light and when I wake up it is light. I am not talking the brightness of early morning or late evening. I am talking middle of the day light. I didn’t know how I would do with all of this and at first it made me really tired because I kept forgetting to go to bed! Now it is kind of nice. When I get up – I usually am up and ready to go! Every couple of days I am tired, but all in all – I am feeling so much better!
#4 - Dallas Seavey - the 2012 Iditarod Champion . He was a guest at the Alaska Pacific University Gala and a dog sled ride was auctioned off. We raised a great bit of money – but the highlight of volunteering was seeing this man dressed super nice with a smile and a great attitude.
#5 – The Idea of My New iPhone – I say the idea as it is on its way so I can’t say I actually have it yet. The reason I am so excited is that it will be my first one. I can now use Instagram, I can now use MyFitnessPal, I can do FaceTime, I can now have Google Maps to navigate this place as my GPS in my car apparently doesn’t have the “Alaska package”…I mean really?? I am just excited to be able to use the fun fitness things all the FitFluential people talk about and I can now join in!!!!!
