Hey guys! How is everyone’s week so far? Mine’s been pretty crazy! In my last post, I mentioned going for my “trial shift” at one of the local kickboxing gyms. It went great! I was hired and had my first “real” shift today! It’s a lot to take in, but then again, so is any new job, or anything, for that matter, that you take on. I’m super excited about getting to know my clients! The ones I met on my trial shift were happy to see me back today!.
Also this week, I taught my very first karate class completely on my own! (Sensei was in his office in case I needed him……..he didn’t throw me to the wolves!) It was so much fun! My students were kids between the ages of 6 and 10 and were white, yellow and orange belts. These kids were wonderful with me! You know how kids seem to get out of hand when there’s a sub because they think they can get away with it? Not these kiddos! I could not have asked for a better group of students for my first class on my own! The next class was the intermediate students; green, blue and purple belts. I called out the line drills in the beginning of class for them, and then I helped out for the remainder of the class. The past couple of weeks have been amazing learing experiences for me and the coming weeks will continue to be the same. I look forward to each and every minute!
Among other news, I have signed up for my very first……wait for it………5K; and it’s in two and a half weeks!!! I have been inspired by so many of you! All of the spirited posts I’ve read have convinced me that I just HAD to give it a whirl! Courtney even signed up with me, too! I’m not sure if Greg will be able to participate with us this time around. The run is in the evening, and he may not be able to get off work in time to get there. (There’s always next time, honey!!! ;))
To help me with my new and exciting endeavors, I desperately needed a new pair of sneakers. I have been wearing the same ones for four years!!!! I finally got a pair yesterday and I LOVE them!!! Check ‘em out:
