NO ONE TOLD ME..........

OK, No one told me how hard it would be to start my own business or how exhilarating it would be either. No one told me that when you work for yourself you rarely know what day it is.
It's Saturday and I just found out it's Memorial day weekend. Are you kidding? I can't take off on Monday, too much to do. No one told me that when I was pitched this big curve ball that I'd step up to the plate, take my stance, choke up on the bat and prepare to "hit it out of the park". OK, I haven't actually made contact with the ball yet, but I can smell it coming at me. I can smell the dust that the ball and bat striking right in the sweet spot will create. OK, I'm getting a little carried away.
But my website is painfully close to going live, and I'm so close to my BIG move to the mountains of North Carolina. AND least we forget; painfully close to my OFFICIAL Chicago marathon training program. My coach says I'll be more than ready with all hill work outs but I am always paranoid that I'll get injured. My knee kept me from running on Friday and today it was 100% great. who knows. age I guess:-)
Next weekend we have a big 3 day event in Madeira Beach,FL, The MADDOG Triathlon. I love that name. They are a huge Tri club in the area. So stay tuned for our story on that next week.
Sense my last post I've been super busy with the business, ordering, doing the website, designing Jewelry and Marketing. I am wondering how I got up every morning for 30 years, Monday-Friday, got showered and dressed, drove 40 minutes to work to sit in a cubicle and call on clients in other cities and states, write meaningless reports and have some one do roll call to make sure I was in my seat at 8:30am and 5:30pm. Really what year is this? As hard as I am working, and how I worry sometimes, I can not believe I didn't do this sooner. I have never been happier, (I have my moments) But this is what life should be about. I run and workout when I feel like it and work the rest of the day until dinner, sometimes fix dinner and then work again.
I could have never done it without the support of my husband, family and friends. I love you all.
Stayed tuned for quite a bit of adventure in the next months as my website launches, I move to North Carolina, and make contact with that fast pitch coming my way.
Watch out world..........I love home runs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but I'll take a base hit for now if I have to.
Keep on pushing yourself to do whatever you have dreamed~~
