Well Tuesday was my first day in 30 years that I didn't get up and go to my traditional radio sales job. It's time to move into the next phase of my life, I am so excited and so nervous. Talk about totally stepping out of your comfort zone. But this will give me the time I need to devote to Milestones Jewelry, packing up to move to Murphy NC, and training for the Chicago Marathon.
I certainly have plenty to keep me busy.
Milestones is really going well, we had a small event last weekend at Innisbrook resort and it was great. This weekend we are looking forward to The May classic, one of the biggest 5K's in the area from what I hear. and then next weekend we have our first really big time expo, "Danskins SheROX"; an all women's triathlon (2200 participants). We had to pay a hefty fee to be at the expo but I think we will do great.
Other exciting news: Our photos are all complete and my webmaster has uploaded them along with descriptions to our official website. So the website is really moving along now. I'm not sure when it will be complete but I'm thinking in a week. I'll be sure to e-mail everyone to let you know.
Well I am really sick today, hope it's not the swine flu, I think I'll go to the walk in clinic just to be safe. My Doctor is out of town until Monday and my insurance ends tomorrow.
So I'm bummed out that I couldn't run yesterday or today. I did have 2 nice runs so far this week, on Monday I did 6 miles and Tuesday I did 5. I'm hoping I'll feel better in the morning and can get in at least 3-4 miles. we are working the May Classic race on Saturday so no run that day but should be able to do a long run with Christine on Sunday. We only have a few more long runs together and then I'll be running solo in the mountains of North Carolina.
I will miss running with her a bunch.
well gotta run........lots to do and got to get to the Dr.
Have a great day.
Oh I just have to tell you what my long time childhood friend wrote on my face book in response to me leaving my radio job and moving to NC and starting a new business,
he wrote, "Melody, life is not a 100 yard dash. Bless you on your "marathon" in life! Here's wishing you a "personal best" in your journey".
How cool is that. I am lucky to have such great friend and family.
