Let me catch you up on what has been going on in my life. I know I have been MIA from the blog world for a long while but apparently training for an IM, moving across the country, applying to grad school, taking prereq classes, and working a full time job all at once is all hard to balance and I needed a break. I needed time to get my feet planted in Denver. I needed time to not have many obligations. I needed to relax.
I’m back now.
So to catch you up to speed…
Phil and I bought a house! It is a beautiful home with a large backyard in a great area of Denver. I’m so excited for this next step in our lives. We move in in two weeks!
I am finished with all of my prerequisite classes for PT school! It took two years, but they are finally over. I am all set to start my doctorate program in August!
I finally feel comfortable and settled in Denver. It took a little while and it took some hard realizations. Luckily, I met some amazing people early on that made settling in a little easier. The hardest part about moving is having the realization of “who your real friends are”. My mom told me it would happen, and (like always) she was right.
I am only signed up for one triathlon so far this season. The reason? Money. Triathlons are expensive and with buying a house and taking out loans for school, I had to sacrifice quantities of races. There will only be one 70.3. But I will train hard and execute it as best as I can. I can still consider myself a triathlete even though I’m not racing every weekend, right? (Separate post to come on this topic soon)
I am becoming a certified SPINNING instructor on June 17th. I’m really excited. It will be a fun and great way to make some extra cash while in PT school.
I am spending the long weekend in the mountains with a ton of people this weekend and I am so excited. It will also be Brizzy’s first camping trip. I’ll let you know how a pug does with camping.
I am heading to San Fran with one of my closest friends, Kate in two weeks. The same Kate that broke her face when we wrecked our bikes. I am cheering her on during a tri and then we are spending the next several days drinking wine in Napa.
I get to spend 2 weeks at home in Philly in August for my sisters wedding. There is also a beach trip planned with my college roomates. We are all super close and it has been a long time since we were all in the same place at the same time. It will be epic. Yes, I used the word epic. Twice.
That’s a quick summary but I’m excited to be blogging again be back next week with a recap of our camping trip!
