Those Moments

For the past couple of weeks I feel I keep running into those magical moments when the Universe responds with a resounding “YES!”

My thirty one miles for thirty one years project for my birthday went relatively flawlessly. I was planning on making a video, and I sitll might, but the GoPro camera pooped out after the first bike ride…. so we will see what I can do with pictures and phone camera video.

Those thirty one miles felt magical though. This was the first birthday I felt I took full control. I didn’t rely on others and hope that they some how read my mind and guessed exactly what I wanted to have happen and then perfectly execute it. That is way too much to ask. Instead, I took a long look at myself and my life and asked “how do I want to spend my time on my birthday?” knowing full well that Michael and my friends had to work. It was easy then to plan a challange involving some of my favorite sports. Here is the break down in case you missed it on instagram and facebook:

18.4 mile road bike

4.2 mile mountain bike

4.4 mile trail run

4 mile road run with Fleet Feet

On top of all that birthday fun has been opportunities in business and running that have come up. A few runners I really look up to have taken interest in my running and I’ve been invited to group runs I always wanted to attend.

Business is still limping along, but at least I have made more connections and had more confirmation that I am in the right spot doing the right stuff for the time being. It would be great to one day make a paycheck though. But this time around, I feel confident in the foundation I am building for the practice. This time I am going to have more teaching opportunities and community involvement than before. I am hoping that leads to a lot more satisfaction and less time sitting in a small office.
