High School Over?!

Guess who graduates high school on wednesday? Yup that would be me. I don't think it has truly hit me yet that I will no longer be going to the same school everyday but I am definitely excited for college. Today I was able to sleep in and relax. I woke up at 8:30 am and watched The Killing (one of my favorite shows). The season finale was last night and I absolutely had to watch it again. Way to leave me hanging the producr of The Killing, now I have to wait till next season to see what is going to happen?
I have been branching out and expanding my exercise horizon. I haven't run everyday like I used to and started switching it up and making it more exciting. Zumba, Strength Training, Running, Elliptical, Walking, Biking and playing basketball. It has been so much fun. Not only am I working out but I am actually enjoying it and breaking out of the "it's a job" feeling. And to make it even better some of my friends actually want to start running with me!! YAY! It's great to have someone to run with and talk to sometimes during runs, it makes it go by so much faster.
I still want to accomplish my 1,000 running miles in 2011 so I want to run about 20 miles a week, but since I ran plenty more than that during half marathon training I almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!!
Oh and another thing I am super excited for is_____ I start my summer camp counselor job next monday!!!! I used to be a camper at the place where I work now so that means I have been going there for 13 years, yes 13 years. I am definitely comfortable there and there's a family vibe. I get to work with the kids that are 5 and 6. I can't wait. I just love being a counselor.
Well that's it for now.

Busier than Expected

The  last couple of weeks have flown by. I can't believe that my last day of high school is tomorrow!!!! Yes tomorrow. Over the past couple of weeks I've been getting all my work done for school and just trying to enjoy my last bit of high school. And to make everything better, my passion for runner has been burning brighter than ever!! I am loving running just for me and nobody else. I have been trying different interval workouts and pushing myself. it's been wonderful building my confidence up and feeling better about my workouts. Yay!!
I've been spending more time with my family too. Can't spend enough  ime with my mom, dad, and brother. I even went to my cousins' dance recital and danced at intermission in the ZUMBA demonstration on stage!!! So much fun. And in between the 2 recitals we went to an amazing little restaurant called Yvonne's Cafe in Ocean Grove. Let's just say the food was delicious and everything was fresh and made to order, nothing frozen :) I had the veggie burger and side salad with balsamic vinagrette and have never had anything that great in my life!!
And I went dress shopping for graduation! It only took four hours and about 10 stores before I found the perfect dress at H&M.
Well I will keep you updated more often now that I won't be so busy and crunched for time.

Happy National Running Day!!!

It's National Running Day :) Oh how I love running. I knew that today wassupposed to be extra steamy in Jersey, I woke up early and went for a run before school. That means I woke up at 5:15 and went for a little more than 3 miles. Even running that early, I couldn't even escape the heat. I plan on running another 2 or 3 on the treadmil and I am heading to Zumba tonight with my Aunt Annie.
Words can't describe my love for zumba. I think the reason I love zumba so much is because of the instructor that teaches the class that I take. Jane is the absolute most amazing person ever. Her personality and energy keep everyone moving and in a great mood the whole class. At zumba I just let go and let loose, enjoy myself and get my weekly dancing in. Not to mention listen to some of my favorite songs while getting a kick-butt workout.
More news to come later..
