What a crazy month it has been. I can’t believe we are already in May, with summer quickly approaching us. Now that the warmer weather is here, the training gets that much harder. I can’t tell you how many times in the past week I have wanted to just sit, but I forced myself to get out and run anyway. I know I haven’t written much during the month of April, but I haven’t given up on it. I have been super busy with work, school, teaching and staying on the road. I am so excited, I finished my spring semester so I have a month off. I hope to get some blog post in during that time. I only have two more semesters before graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Technology Leadership. The month of April is also a very busy time for us at work because of state testing going on. With all of the students testing on laptops, we are pulled in so many different directions. Testing is now over so hopefully things will slow down for us. Among everything else, my Yoga class on Monday nights is going great. I have 10 students signed up for the May session. I love teaching and watching my students make progress week after week. I have a wonderful class and I’m so thankful for their support. I start teaching on Sunday afternoons in the summer in Braselton starting May 20 and will go through every Sunday throughout the summer unless noted. I have two outdoor classes to choose from. There will be a beginner yoga class and a power yoga class. Power yoga goes at a faster pace and is perfect for those who are looking for a great workout at a great price. If you have friends near the Braselton area, I would be very grateful if you could help spread the word.
Let’s talk races! April was once again filled with some awesome races. Here is a list of all the races I have done over the last month. After getting back from Charleston, I ran the Johns Creek’s Finest 5K on April 14th. It was a great run with awesome awards. Can’t believe I was able to place third in such a large race.
April 21st we ran Paint the Pavement Purple in Suwanee.
April 28th we ran Pounding for Paws in Arcade. This is one of my favorite races because it helps raise money for food and shelter for dogs.
May 5th Dad and I ran the Make A Wish 8K at Stone Mountain. It was 5 miles around the mountain. I have found, Stone Mountain is a great place to run. The path goes all the way around the mountain, it is nice and shaded and has the right amount of hills for training.
This coming weekend we will be running the Marigold 10K in Winterville. May and June are both busy months of being on the road. We have some pretty fun races coming up so look for more blog post soon!
