Fall 2013

Oh hey! I would like to apologize for my absence… I have had a lot going on in my world.

Let us start with the a few little things and work our way up! I ran and finished two races! I have been an athlete my whole life, playing basketball, softball, volleyball, tennis, swimming and of course playing soccer, but I have never participated in a run/race in my life. Becca does not enjoy just running. I like to chase a ball, run over bases or cut through the water. I chose to do this because I am turning 30 in May and I wanted to challenge myself. I was in decent shape, but anyone who runs will tell you that running is a much different sport then a team sport. It is much more mental and you only have yourself to lean on (for the most part). In other words I had to “beat” myself. I had to be the one who got me over the finish line. So, I pushed myself through the pain, boredom, and doubt and made past the finish line. The first race was a 2 mile run benefiting heart disease and the second run was the Columbus Color Me Rad fun run. Both were awesome and I am very proud of myself.

Another thing that has happened is that I have spent the last 2 years trying to crawl out of the financial hole the was dug during my divorce. I found out today that my score is at its highest point since my separation! WOOOHOO!!! This latest climb has brought to a lower risk tier J I still have a ways to go, but I am getting there and it feels nice to have made this progress.

Last, but not least…. I am dating someone. I have known him since High School, but we were never more than friends until now. One of my goals for the year was to put myself back out there and go on at least one date. I have done that and it turned out to be a surprisingly wonderful choice. That is all I will say for now :)
