I am a factoid person. More times than not, I usually have something to say about a variety of topics, events, or just life in general. So I decided to write it down in a personal blog. Why? Because “Life” is a journey and I’m fortunate to have done some amazing things, met some unique individuals, and work in an industry that I love. I want to share my experiences with people and ask that they will share back.
So, I’m balancing my professional and personal responsibilities to allow me to achieve some goals that I put on the back burner. Right now I’m rediscovering my inner-athlete. I have been involved in athletics and the performing arts for more than 1/2 of my life. I’ve competed in varsity sports and performed professionally in musical theatre and ballet. “Life” got in the way and I just didn’t seem to have time for it any more. Well that has changed.
On June 6, 2010 I ran my first 5K race as a 46th birthday present to me (thanks to support and encouragement from my friend Melanie). I’m now training for a 10K race. After that, I’d love to do a half-marathon. Who knows from there? To fit in my running and cross-training, I have to be more focused at work and as a result of my workouts, I have almost boundless energy.
I’m going to share my stories, anecdotes, observations, streams of consciousness, and opinions about a variety of topics. I’ll probably start with posts about my training since that’s taking up a lot of my time. I think it’s interesting that I’m in better shape at almost 50 than I was in my late 30s. I’m finding there are a lot of people who think that past 40 is only rocking chair time. I want to change it to just rockin’!
I’d love to hear back from people with questions, comments, suggestions, and stories. Thank you for coming with me on this wonderful journey.
