Hey Everyone, sorry for the late blog post. It feels so long that I have posted. I've been busier than I had anticipated. I did not end up going to San Francisco, I got called into work. There was a crisis at my job and I'm happy that they had me on mind to help. Working full- time Behavioral Therapist plus working for an Agency called Latin Nation Live. As you see on the right side, Derius and I are working really hard. ;) haha (It was our break!) Plus training has been a big madness. As work does drain my energy. I'm happy that I am able to push myself to train everyday. It's hard to step out the door but once I'm on the door. It feels amazing. It's a rush of excitement and adrenaline. This week is the second phase of my training. FINALLY WORKOUTS! =) I had my first workout on Monday. Boy was it tough and fun. I ran 20 min easy, 20 min tempo at 6:10 pace and 20 min cool down. It's only the beginning! I am excited to get dirty and down to business. :) On Thursday worked on some speed and the other day ran recovery pace.
As for special moment, last week my twin sister graduated from Cal Poly Pomona. Finally my twin sister can train with me officially. I love training with her because we both have the urge to be competitive with each other. Of course we want the best for each other but it is so much better to have a sister who is the same pace as me! Who drives me to become better and who knows exactly when I'm going to run faster or I try to kill her by striding faster to get away from her. (It never works) lol It's like she's reading my mind. YIKES lol Here is a photo of her BELOW. Isn't she beautiful. :)
Did I ever mention that my house is under construction and has been for the last 3 months. I'm excited to finally move back in to my room, tomorrow. Father's Day. All this change. I am excited to walk into my new and changed house. My new jobs and a new coach s certainty a big change. Change is definitely good and scary at the same time. I was worried that I am not able to be successful in what ever I do. I then realized that what makes people better people/ inspiring is that they are more willing to face risk with hope. This may seem cliché, but my new rule is, I'd rather fail a hundred times in pursuit of my dream, than have never known. I want to be more willing. Willing to hope, risk, fail, dream, go, speak, do, and live. Until next time, puss puss! =)
