Every time I think there is a possible peace , short moment of clarity, time to start slowing down reality sets in. I am finally starting to realize my once “semi” peaceful life is now over for the moment.
Don’t get me wrong I am thrilled to constantly be moving, doing, working, and being but DAMN can’t a girl get a break.
A few examples of non-stop. After a very emotional week at work I dove right into more work and volunteered for a local Triathlon organization around Richmond, VA. One of my clients I work with is RichmondMultisports. The company puts on a series of Triathlon events throughout the summer that would rock your socks off and keep you coming back for more; Check them out! I volunteered at the Kids PowerSprint and the GroundForceIT PowerSprint. I loved every minute of it and I am probably going to attempt my first Tri in August you should too!
Although work absorbed the majority of my weekend it did not stop me from enjoying some wonderful food with wonderful company. My mother came to visit because she was participating in her first Tri. We dined at our favorite place in Richmond, Virignia twice! 3Monkeys Bar and Grill you can’t go wrong and the Bartenders are pretty cute.
Hummus, feta and red pepper pizza, eggs bruschetta … brownie sundae (say what) can’t get much better! I also FINALLY watched Black Swan. I don’t care what people say. The movie was weird but I liked it.
Another exciting occasion this weekend was the purchase of my new shoes. I have been in need of new running shoes for probably oh I don’t know about 6 months now. I haven’t been running much because of my pelvis but the shoe issue was becoming a serious problem.
Introduce the Mizuno Precision 11. I’m in love except I am not allowed to train long distance in them because of the light support. Due to my body hating me I have to wear less comfortable shoes to support “The Pelvis”.
Now that the weekend is over I have already over consumed myself with more things to do. I have to pack my entire apartment in 3 days and then move memorial day weekend… bummer.
All I want to do starting Friday at 5:30 PM when I leave work is head to the beach with these lyrics swimming through my head…
“I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand Life is good today, life is good today”
Yet I will be staring down at the bottom of brown boxes wondering how the hell I’m going to fit all my stuff in and move without stress… I’m thinking its not possible.
