A Fresh Start

The end of 2011 was a VERY busy time for me. In a matter of 6 weeks I moved to a new city, started working in a new location with a new job title (yay!), found a new gym to workout at, put my house up for get the point! I can't say that those 6 weeks were easy (not even close to be honest) but they were exactly what I needed. I learned a lot about myself, what I want, and where I want to be going which is something I might not have been able to say had I not decided to do this.
The beginning of 2012 has been busy, but in different ways. It started out with an amazing "vacation" to Florida. I wouldn't say this was a relaxing or traditional vacation, it was actually quite the opposite. It started with a late flight out Thursday night getting into Miami about midnight with a quick turnaround Friday morning to get started on the Miami to Key West Ragnar Event. Pretty much means I lived in a van with 5 awesome people while we took turns running from Miami to Key West (in total just under 200 miles). No sleep, showers, running anywhere from 23-42 miles each...26 hours later we were on Duval Street in Key West at the finish line! gets better. Two of my van-mates got married on the beach after a quick shower...awesome (congrats Ty & Kim)! Something about this trip sparked something in me. Having some really amazing miles to run at all times of the day and night gave me a lot of time to think. Why have I been complicating everything? Why all of these expectations? Why can't I just enjoy what life is offering me? Why do I figure this out at 11am while I'm running mile 22 of my last leg after I haven't slept in over a day?
It's so simple, figure out what you love, who you love, I've got that down...then figure out ways to make those things and people a bigger part of your life...that's what I'm working on.
I'm SO excited about this year and the possibilities that it can bring. I have a lot of plans, ideas, thoughts, and goals for this year which will all help me spend more time being with those people and doing those things I love. As the year goes on I will keep you all updated on where I'm at and how things are going.
First things first, a full weekend of Anusara Yoga with Desiree Rumbaugh at the beginning of February. Can't wait!
