Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Back To School

On Monday, I went back to school. OY VEY! It has been a long time since I was last in school and since the school I'm at right now will not accept any of the credits I received back in Canada, so I am really starting fresh.

So, Monday I was a ball of NERVES, so I hit the gym for a run and weight training. My run was alright, I tried pushing myself a little. More than anything, I just needed to work out a little bit of the nerves and stress I was feeling about school. I even hit the weights, it had been a LONG time since I had touched the weights and I knew that I would feel it on Tuesday and did I ever but it was a good hurt. My return to the gym on a regular basis in a non Zumba teaching capacity has been long over due, and it feels great to be back. I even went back for another run and more weights and core work on Wednesday... bad ass, I know. Tuesday and Thursday, I just had a date with the elliptical because I teach Zumba on Tuesday and Thursday nights and I didn't want to do anything crazy.

Guess what I am going to do on Sunday.... the Hot Chocolate 15K. I'm excited about the race because there's chocolate at the end, and you know the whole running thing is pretty cool too. Did I mention the chocolate? I hope the race doesn't disappoint because the expo/packet pickup today was kind of disappointing. I'm optimistic that it'll be a good race and a great time will be had by all.

I too got squat in transfer credit for my Canadian Bachelors degree when I went back to Nursing school here in the US. VERY frustrating to say the least. Good luck!!!!!
