So this past week I have registered for a 5K and a 10K. The 5K is in 5 weeks and the 10K is in 7. I've started training and taking supplements to help with my endurance and muscle gain. The supplements are horrible tasting but the extra protein is definitely helping give me more energy. The 10K is going to be insane! It is called the Dirty Dash and is run through mud. I am entering the event as a team with a few of my friends. We are helping each other stay motivated and have a common goal of just finishing the event! We don't care about times or places, it is strictly going to be about pushing each other and meeting our goal. I'm having a hard time with my training schedule because I can't go running outside and a treadmill is just not the same. My neighborhood is too sketchy for a young female to go running around in the middle of the night and I can't leave my unit at work to go running. I will get there though!
School is going well. I just finished my bioethics class and definitely benefited from it. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get at least an A- out of the class which will keep my GPA around 3.8! Woohoo! I've started a management class and can already tell I'm really going to have to force myself to do the work because it is so boring! How many times are they going to teach us to be a leader in nursing school?! Only 3 more classes though, that is 19 weeks!!!!
This past week I also gained a new family member! My sister had her first baby! A beautiful, healthy, and sweet little girl! I am so happy and excited! I usually have a general dislike for most children, but she is just too wonderful to not fall in love with. My sister and brother-in-law are going to be amazing parents and I am so happy for them! I can't wait to spoil my little princess and look forward to all of the fun things I'm going to teach her and take her to! Life is amazing!
