And some of you might be thinking that it is sweet that, I have a cat who watches TV, while others might be scratching your heads about how I have only one chair in my apartment.
2016 took off with a bang! I was catapulted to Houston after my plans and arrangements had fallen through to move to the OBX. I have been here four weeks, and my role as Youth Triathlon Coach is just starting to unfold. This week programming will begin. This week is the week I have been waiting for since I arrived in Houston.
Upon arrival in Houston, I was living in a hotel. Houston is not necessarily a friendly city when searching for housing. And of course, everyone has advice.
I was thrilled to find my apartment!
Unfortunately, while I was residing in the hotel and not working, I spent money I did not have. And the piggy bank is beyond empty!
I have had a few moments where I wanted to throw in the towel, a few where I cried and earned my award for the best drama queen, and many, many others where I am singing and dancing and thrilled at the opportunities I am being presented.
- I am serving as an ambassador for Kids Triathlon, Inc.
- I found a Master's Swim Group
- I am teaching indoor cycling
- I might be coaching field hockey this fall
- I have been asked to start a youth Tri team, as well as a women's team.
And I am thrilled. I do not expect any of it to be bump or obstacle free, but I am truly excited to be here in Houston and the opportunities it brings.
And yes, I am still knocking off those miles, one at a time. Updates to come.
