Ok, I totally just made up that title. But seriously, since 5pm Tuesday has been awesome!!!!
1. THERE IS A MOOSE VISABLE FROM MY HOUSE RIGHT AS I TYPE THIS (5:44PM AKST).
I ARRIVED HOME, HE WAS WALKING THROUGH MY YARD INTO MY NEIGHBORS YARD, AND THEN TO OUR OTHER NEIGHBORS YARD. I AM USING ALL CAPS BECAUSE I LITERALLY WANT TO YELL HOW MUCH THIS EXCITES ME FROM THE ROOF TOPS.
This is probably one of the greatest things about living in Alaska. I freak out (joyfully!) every time I see a moose, and they’re starting to appear more frequently in our neighborhood (Reference my instagram if you don’t believe me) In a packed city moose still roam free and act as if they own the place. (They do, no one wants to go up against a moose. Cars usually lose that battle.)
2. I now have a personal trainer and coach who will help me reach my half-marathon and fitness goals!
I’ve come to realize I am not as small as I was in high school (or college), and I want to get back in shape and at a healthier weight. So, realizing I need the guidance for motivation and nutrition, I have hired a personal trainer with an athletic background who will get me back into tip top shape. This is awesome because I am running a half-marathon in June, another in August, and going to the Virgin Islands in December with my family and I want to look hot in a bikini.
3. Someone finds my running lifestyle cool enough to blog about it! For Big Wild Life Runs, we’ve been profiling runners coming to the race in August to share on our blog and hopefully get people excited to run and sign up. The first guy I profiled happens to be a local Alaskan, and he asked if he could profile me! Being the narcissist that I am, I obviously said yes. He wrote super nice things about me, if you want to read it!
What is happening on your super awesome weekday?
