Oh man, it has been a chaotic end of the summer/beginning of the autumn. Unlike this spring, when I was able to focus on running and racing, without too many other distractions, I am a busy woman once again. I am now an assistant coach for track and cross country at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. I am having a blast; we have a great group of student-athletes; I am not as excited about the recruiting. In exchange for coaching, I attend free classes at Augsburg, and I just started my first business class in my quest for a Masters of Social Work and Masters of Business dual graduate degrees. In my Tuesday night class, Social Entrepreneurship, I am being given $300 by the college to start my own business. And although I am sure I will appreciate the skills I am going to learn in business school, there is no way I ever want to have a business.
Since I got home from racing in Europe, I’ve run a couple road miles (the GNC Liberty Mile in Pittsburgh and the Minnesota Mile in Duluth). This weekend I am taking a crack at the 5k road USA championship in Providence, Rhode Island. Afterwards, I will take a break from running! My body and mind are in great need of some time away from working out, plus I need to get my wisdom teeth out. They are driving me crazy!
Short update, but I need to get back to the homework.
