Wow, I didn't mean for a week to pass with no blog post. It just happened. On more than one day I did sit down with the intention of getting something posted, but would be called away before even starting. My stage/theatrical life really took over last weekend and then coming out of it I was in quite the tailspin. Although my family is very understanding and supportive I had a lot to get back to with my "normal" life and responsibilities. Anyway....onto today's post of Three Things Thursday.
1. I have talked about an upcoming triathalon that I had planned to do. So far that was all just a bunch of talk and a plan. I wasn't actually signed up for said race up until this week. Now, it's official! I AM racing in my first (in 10 years) outdoor triathlon next weekend. Mind you I have done an outdoor tri before (it's just been so long ago) and I do an indoor one almost every year (similar, but very different). It's time to get back to the real deal. I will say, I don't really know what I'm doing....other than swimming, biking & running. Like most other things I have not trained specifically for this event. I'm a wing it sort of competitor. This has it's pros and cons. For now I'm just wanting to get back to the event. I plan/hope to in the future to do more than one a year. For now I just want to get this race done and kind of get of gauge of how I compete, what needs work, etc.
2. I have a new fitness teaching position at the local community college, most commonly referred to as CSC or Sandburg. This will in no way effect my teaching, training & certifying at the YMCA where I have worked for 16 years. My new job makes me adjunct faculty and I have to actually grade the students who are taking the class for credit. I'm excited about this new teaching opportunity!
If you are interested in getting a closer look at my performance in the
Pirates of Penzance you have several options. You can see several
hundred pictures that were taken here. Or you can see a slideshow I created with the same pictures, but with less pictures here. I also talked a little more in detail about my experience on my family blog. And, as noted on my family blog, you can see some video clips of a dress rehearsal on this Youtube account.
