Full Moon Dreamboard

Today is the Full Snow moon. Jamie Ridler writes:

Sometimes we bury our dreams and desires deep within, as though hiding them under layers and layers of snow. Protecting them. Protecting ourselves. Waiting until the time is right for them to grow. Now is the time to tune into your heart, to let your intuition and your dreamboard express and reveal the dreams that are hidden inside. Let the creative process take you below the surface, beneath the layers of safety and protection, guiding you to the innermost dreams sparkling in your soul.

My dream is to get hired for a job. It’s been my dream for awhile, but I’ve always had 1001 reasons for ignoring it. Well it is now ready for its big reveal & I am ready to both step into my dream and get out of its’ way.

Numbers Don’t Lie

Well, sometimes they do. But in this case, they totally don’t!

My #TwitterRoadRace 5k times:

January 21, 2012       40:25

August 4, 2012           38:30

February 23, 2013      35:43

These were all done on my treadmill under the same conditions: dirty laundry room, kids & husband afoot, squeezed in during family life.

And, by George, I’ve gotten faster! My running has been more consistent, and I’ve been pushing myself a little more, and it shows. 

Until the weather breaks, I’ll be running on the treadmill–experimenting with incline, speed drills, distance/time goals. My 2013 goal of a 34:00 treadmill 5k is definitely achievable. Maybe not before I get outside, but by the time I come back in for late fall/winter training fer sure!

After my dismal performance on NYE, I hope to see similar progress on my outdoor running throughout the spring/summer/fall racing season. 

Wishcasting Wednesday–What do you wish to welcome in?


Today’s Wishcasting Wednesday from Jamie Ridler  is especially poignant, as I am deep into a job search.  I wish to welcome a JOB into my life. The job I wish to be hired for will be: 

  • rewarding–the company or organization will have values and/or a mission in which I believe
  • flexible–the job will be part or full time. If full time, there will be some flexibility in terms of schedule
  • meaningful–I will gain new skills and knowledge during my tenure in the position
  • offer opportunities for growth–move from part to full time; assume additional responsibilities

I also welcome the challenges that will come with my return to the workforce, including:

  • finding childcare for the kids
  • maintaining the kids’ schedules of activities
  • being more focused and disciplined re: the house & fitness
