Alright, it's time for another linkup! At the end of every month, us fitness bloggers share our Runfessions - about running, lifting, working out (or not working out), or whatever we have to get off our chests! Thanks so much to Marcia at Marcia's Healthy Slice for hosting!
Runfession #1: We'll start with an actually running confession - I've hardly been running at all lately. I started this blog because I was getting deep into the racing scene in Chicago, and I was truly loving it! Right now, I'll blame the cold and snow and ice for why I'm not lacing up more often, but the truth is that I'm focusing so much more on teaching fitness classes and building muscle through lifting and cross training. Hopefully I'll re-inspire myself to run more again when it warms up, at least for the puppy's sake!
Runfession #2: Related to #1, this blog is kind of becoming not-a-running-blog, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I started blogging for two reasons: to keep myself accountable as a newbie runner, and to help inspire others the way other bloggers inspired me when I was beginning this fitness journey. Over the year and a half since I started, this blog has evolved along with me, and I'm trying to accept that it's okay for these changes to happen. I have some new things I want to try here, and hopefully people will keep reading. I do know that blogging DOES still keep me accountable to some of the fitness commitments I have made, and that much I KNOW I like!
Runfession #3: I'm starting my new job pretty soon as a race director (maybe that'll help me run more eh?) and I'm incredibly nervous about it. There's no doubt in my mind that I can handle the job and excel at it, but it's a big career switch, and one that I want to last for a very long time. I've never had a job that I truly expected to love, so my biggest worry is that maybe I won't enjoy it as much as I expect I will. I'm getting a little old to keep assuming I can switch careers easily or even at all, so I really want to both enjoy and perform at this new job so I can finally have an actual "career path."
Runfession #4: I turn 30 in a little over a week. 'Nuff said there, right?
What runfessions do you have? What's your dream job, and are you lucky enough to be in it right now? How do you handle nervous jitters?
