Hello all! I hope you have been having a wonderful Holiday Season, whatever one you celebrate!
I have not had a chance to blog in a while. I go through these phases. If you’ve been following me for a while, you already know that.
My last post was about my thousands of jobs that I have had this year. At the bottom, I alluded to a new job!
I would finally like to share with you what that is.
Drum roll please….
3W Races is a local running company in the Arvada/Westminster area. As you might know, I have been an Ambassador for them for the last year. What that meant was I volunteered a lot for them at their events and run clubs to promote for them. In exchange I got to run their races, fun freebies like 3W race shirts and above all I met numerous amazing people! I’m super thankful for the Ambassador program.
About a month ago, I received a phone call from the race directors and owners and they said they had a really cool opportunity for me. I called them back and found out that they wanted to offer me a job!
I was ecstatic! Like dancing and jumping around in my car ecstatic! A good, big girl job with a RUNNING company! An actual running company! Something that all of us bloggers talk about all the time! Amazing! It’s perfect for me!
So what will I be doing? I will mainly help with the marketing side. That’s dealing with sponsors and helping get the word out about our events. I will also be helping with the very program I was/am involved in: The Ambassador program. I’m really excited to help with that. And I also will help with some race production, volunteer coordination, registration, packet pick ups, water stations, set up, etc, etc. Basically anything they need help with, I’m there!
It pays off to be a Jack of All Trades!
Needless to say, this is an amazing opportunity for me. While it is only part-time for now (but growing fast) I’m still really excited that they thought of me for the job! I will still be personal training and coaching group fitness at the rec center and I will still be coaching high school cross-country and track and field. I may keep a few promotions jobs like the liquor promos because those are super flexible and usually at night (plus it’s good money, and I pretty much get paid to socialize – win win). But I am getting rid of all my other random jobs and no more Substitute Teaching and dealing with awful teenagers!
-I am going also be a 2015 3W Ambassador as well. All that means is if they don’t need me to “work” a race, I’ll just volunteer to cover my needed volunteer hours.
-Running….going better for me than it has been. I am working on re-building my base again. It’s tough work but I’m sure I’ll be back to where I was in no time. It’s just really frustrating and part of me so desperately wants to be FAST! More on “running and me” later.
-Snowboarding…the season has started! I have gotten in a handful of days already!
-Relationships…meh we wont get into that! I am learning to just “go with it.” It may not work out in the end and that’s ok, but as long as the journey is fun, I know that someday I will find someone willing to stick by me.
-Hmm….what else is going on? I was driving a rental car for almost a month after being rear ended by a hit and run driver (I was not injured). But upon getting my car back, it decided that it didn’t want to start very well in the cold and the shocks and struts are gone…oh boy…and I was stuck with another rental (but this time is was a Dodge Challenger!!) Can I just own a horse and buggy, please??
-Holidays…I had a great Thanksgiving and Christmas. I had a friend visiting from California and he joined for X-Mas dinner and we went snowboarding at Breckenridge two days in a row!
I think that’s about all the updates I can think of right now! My new job has been keeping my very busy! I’ll leave you with a view from Breckenridge!
