I Finally got to...

run my first half-marathon!! I was registered to run the Half-Marathon in Myrtle Beach in February of 2010, and it was cancled due to snow (a definite first and probably last time that it will snow in Myrtle Beach!). The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon was a great race! It was the inaugural race and everything was so well organized and put together! I finished in 1:56:23! A new PR for me!

On the other hand, I just registered for my very last class of my E.d. S. degree! Whoohoo. It really is a feeling of bittersweet. I am so ready to be done with school and get a job, yet I am going to miss being in school, the friends that I have met, and the atmosphere and comradere of the University of South Carolina! I can't wait to start my career!

This weekend is my second half-marathon of the season! I am running the Pecan Festival Half Marathon in Florence. I am exited about the local race and being with all of my running friends in our area! This weekend is also Charlie's Pig Pickin weekend; the Hewitt's anual family reunion weekend. I am excited to spend the weekend with my soon to be family!

Oh yeah....199 days to go!!! I can hear those wedding bells!!

Begining again...

Okay, well I started this blog in 2008 and I didn't get very far. A lot of changes have occurred since my first post in 2008! With some inspiration from friends and new hobbies that I love to talk about, I am going to try my hand at blogging and give it a second shot!

A quick catch up....began my E.d.S. degree (Masters + 30) in Counselor Education in June of 2009. I am specializing in school counseling. I became engaged to my sweet fiance on December 25, 2009.

I have always been an athlete and cared about phyical fitness, but in August of 2009 I signed up to run my local YMCA's half marathon. I began running with a group from the Y every Saturday morning to train. It officially has become a hobby, something that I enjoy very much. In addition to running, I have become very food conscious and I like to refer to myself as a moderate health nut! 

So, this blog is dedicated to my running, my soon-to-be new family, and my journey through adulthood! Enjoy!
