life is so busy it gets in the way of blogging

  After my New York City/Mind the Ducks trip I have had a hell of a time blogging. There just doesn't seem like enough time in the day and with less time it also means less creativity. I still have not blogged about my trip or all that I learned and now there is a virtual pile of reviews and new exciting things to blog about.  This is where I jump in.

  The very short version..... I took a trip on a train to New York City stopping off in Chicago and Washington DC.  In DC I met up with Miss Zippy and MCM Mama both fellow bloggers and barefoot runners.

I stayed in Brooklyn and commuted up to Manhattan Chelsea Piers Blue Streak sports complex for a barefoot running coaching course for 5 days.  I was invited to the class by Terra Plana VIVOBAREFOOT and the course was taught by the amazing Lee Saxby.

  You know those anatomy books with the vellum pages that each have an overlay for the different systems of the human body.  Each page adds a layer of complexity to the image before it.  In short, that's what this class did for my running. It added layers of complexity that I had previously not know existed. Now I am working on being certified as a coach and still have some homework to get done to get said certification. Three guinea pig before and after videos and I am set.    We are working on making our own weighted bars instead of shelling out over 30 bones for a silly weighted bar.

  I fell in love with NYC the minute I looked at her.  It was truly love at first sight and by the end of the day after class and then wandering around with my dear friend Tina (thanks for the use of your write up!)   I was either studying or basking in sweet fatigue that comes from happily challenging and busy days.

  When I first was invited to do this coaching course I wasn't sure how it would fit in my life however I saw a significant potential in it and knew that I would see more direct possibilities as time unfolded.  I am quite happy with myself and my foresight!  I usually find it difficult at best to predict the future or to trust that things will make more sense later down the road.  Now I see coaching as a tremendous opportunity that fits right in with the rest of my life.  I keep getting better at it and want to continue to learn.

Nuun is for all movers and groovers and this form of movement coaching is too.  So that I love....
Right before I left for my trip to NYC I was promoted to Midwest Sales Manager  and have been working hard to spread the nuun love in the Midwest.  The Midwest is a big area!  I just got back from a trip to Kansas to our home town and managed to stop by several stores as well as get some new companies on board selling nuun.  It is never hard to sell something I believe in and how cool to be able to effortlessly combine work and play!

 Dam to Dam 20k is next weekend.   This will be my 3rd year running Dam to Dam!  Any one else running it?  I will be practicing Running Smiley!!  Have you heard of the Run Smiley movement?  Check out the collective here.
