End of track....J.O.B.

Well, I'm all finished with my collegiate track career. It was an amazing, fun, hard, four years and I get sad thinking about how I most likely won't be running anymore sidewalk 200's, 300m hills, or repeat 600's ever again. I am also happy however to be able to pursue different types of physical activities. I have been doing crossfit workouts which I love, and am starting to go to different classes at the gym, Craig and I recently started playing tennis together and it is SO much fun. I'm also wanting to eventually take up golf so I can join Craig every once in a while. I am also excited to play some indoor soccer, and start playing in volleyball tournaments, and doing triathlons.
So all in all, I'm okay being finished with track. I'm hoping my slight identity crisis will start to fade as I begin to do other things with my life. It has been a pretty nice transition thanks to my new job. I just recently started working for ThomasArts, an advertising agency in Farmington, and I L-O-V-E it. It's a lot of fun, and I'm so lucky to have gotten a job in my field for an awesome company. Not going to lie though, 40 hours a week is way harder than I anticipated! Well thats me for now.

Craig and I are excited to go to Montana this summer with my family, and hopefully we'll make it to the Oregon coast with his. I'm just happy to finally have some nice weather!

Well I took the GMAT last week. I also had 8 days of track meets, finals for spring semester, and my first couple weeks at my new job. Needless to say; GMAT was unsuccessful. I was hoping I would be able to somehow wing it and do okay since I am a Senior in college and all...but i was very wrong. So...plan B: possibly retake exam and apply for MBA program in January instead of August.

I guess thats what life is about though.

Making plans. Changing plans. Figuring it all out as you go.

In the end I think it might be for the better, I wont be finished with my undergrad until December, so trying to do that, and my job, and start my MBA at the same time probably would have just been too much.
