First reason is....I love teaching. As a bonus for taking students from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions, I get credit vouchers. I have decided to use those vouchers to work toward an advanced certificate in teaching! So I have been spending many nights reading, researching, and writing for school.
Second Reason... I am on a training hiatus.
I have no races currently scheduled (although there are 70.3 thoughts in my head). I have decided to take 3 months off from formal race training (which I haven't done in over 3 years), to work on really losing the weight I need to. I have tried so many times, but race training tends to leave me exhausted and stressed, and hungry! So for 3 months, I have a new best friend.
