This has been one great weekend. Yesterday was my birthday and I spend it running a 5k with my husband and sister in law, and also watching my dad run a 10 mile and watched my mom complete her first 10 mile power walk. I was so proud of everybody. I did pretty well on my 5k. My goal was to run the whole time and not walk and to run under 30 minutes. I accomplished bo... Sun, 27 Mar 2011 16:35:55 EST A Little Catch Up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4102764 So I realize that it has been a long time since I've logged onto Spark People. I had some problems with some viruses on my other computer so I hadn't been getting on the internet with it. I then got a new computer, and just forgot about it.

I'm not really sure if it is a good idea to run in below zero weather. I can barely step outside for a couple seconds without my nose running and my hands turning really cold.

Tue, 8 Feb 2011 19:10:34 EST What to do? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3988184 So, I am sitting here today wondering about my future. I recently graduated from college in May. I currently have a bachelor's degree in Physical Performance and Sports Studies. As of right now, I work in food service and it's just not working out in my favor. I love the work I do, and I make decent money, but I really want a career change. I want to do something that I went to school for. Here's the problem: I don't know what I want to do. The degree I have makes it hard to find a job. I can... Thu, 3 Feb 2011 19:37:15 EST
