Happy Friday, friends! Was this week incredibly busy for you too? I have lots of updates to share, but since everything does not fall under the “random training thoughts” umbrella, I figured a new title seemed appropriate.
Guess who got a big-girl promotion!
Not in reference to said promotion, but still funny. ‘What? That’s totally crazy! I am super chill all the time!’
I’ve been doing community outreach for a while and absolutely loving it, but I wanted to take on more responsibility—and I got my wish! Now in addition to doing outreach for my store specifically, I’m also in charge of managing partnerships with clubs, teams, and charities, plus I’ll be doing a lot of type-A/logistical stuff: staffing expos, coordinating volunteers, etc. I’ll still work the floor a bit—it’s important to interact with runners, listen to their input, know our products, etc.—but I’ll mostly be a “real person” now.
With SoBe rapidly approaching, I’ve been dialing in my nutrition. I know it’s a sensitive topic in both the endurance and blogging worlds, and I don’t want to get into it too much right now. That being said, though, it is astonishing how fueling adequately—pre-, during, and post-workout—makes a difference. Again, this calls for its own post, but my run has finally started to click, and I think it’s because I’ve leaned out over the past few weeks.
My Slice will make its maiden outdoor voyage tomorrow. Again, with SoBe only 22 days away, I need to get comfortable riding in aero. Or at least ride without falling off. That’s the goal right now.
Can we talk about “House of Cards” for a second? My normal jams include “Parks and Recreation” (obviously), “30 Rock,” and “The Office,” but holy cow, why did it take me so long to hop on this bandwagon? Who would’ve thought a comedy-lover like me would enjoy a political thriller?
That’s all I’ve got today. Have a great weekend!
