I feel like I have so much to talk about, but the thing I'm the most excited about is the class I went to this weekend. I decided to get my RRCA certification and they had a class in Denver-yay! My husband got to spend 2 whole days with the boys by himself, which was quite a change for my boys. I think it was good for them to have some "daddy" time, and I also think it was good for my husband to get some "son" time too without me around.
I really enjoyed the class, not only for the information that I learned, but for the contacts I made with other local runners. It was nice to be in a class where everyone there was an athlete. During the breaks we would share stories and get advice from each other. It was great!
I also feel like I learned a lot about training and training plans. Yes, some of it was basic and pretty self-explanatory, but there was some information that made me have some "ah-ha" moments. When I was deciding which marathon training plan to follow, I looked at all of my options online and then picked the one that I thought would best fit into my life and schedule. I didn't really research the plan to figure out why I was running certain things or doing runs at certain paces. I know there are a lot of different philosophies on running, but what I learned from this class really made sense to me.
I still have to take a test and complete my CPR/First Aid class, but I am excited to become officially certified so I can use what I learned to help others become better runners. My first
On a side note, it is AMAZING how many blog posts I have missed! I am trying to get caught up, but some I'm just going to have to let go. :(
I hope you are all having a good week! I CANNOT believe that today is the last day of summer! Where did the time go?
