And So the Winds Change…

Yesterday, I accepted a job offer.

A dream job really.

Someone is going to PAY me to blog.

And to learn SEO, marketing, Google, design, etc.

My excitement is immense.

My attitude is a 180 degrees from blah.

I can still run my kids around.  Work out.  Do everything I’ve been doing…

I can’t wait to see what the future holds!!

I am LOVING Blogging…

I’ve been blogging now for eleven years.  I’ve been with WordPress that entire time.  Some blogs of mine are defunct, but I currently run three blogs.

And I’m having the time of my life!

As some of you know, my other passion in life besides CrossFit is writing.  I’ve written eight novels (none of which are published).  Last year, I decided to take a break from novel writing because the rejections from literary agents was killing me.

I started this blog.  And then another.  Along with one I’ve had eight years now.  Besides my time every day doing CrossFit, this is my favorite time of the day.  Writing.  Sharing.  Connecting with you all.  Reading what’s happening in your world, on your side of the globe, and where you all are traveling to and what makes your heart sing.  It has been a true joy to see all of this and learn so much!

I started thinking, “Maybe I’m meant to blog instead of write novels.  I’m insanely good at this after all this practice.  And I love it.”  I even interviewed with a company to blog for them (that I’m hoping to hear from next week!).

Only time will tell.

Right now, I’m embracing every minute of this.  I want to thank you all for making this so enjoyable.  You visit my blog.  You leave comments.  I visit yours.  Learn about your world.  I feel so very blessed being able to do so.

The internet is many things to many people.  Here I believe is one place it shines.  Opening up worlds that before would be unknowable.  Seeing what you see.  Visiting where you visit.  Learning what you know.  Being a part of your world as much as you can be on the Internet.  I am so very blessed…

Thank you, everyone!  I look forward to the future and what you all bring!

Happy blogging!!

All I Think About is CrossFit…Is that Normal?

I’m on vacation in Steamboat Springs, CO, one of the most beautiful places on earth.

And all I can think about is getting back to the box.

I’m checking my app to see the workout for today.

I’m re-doing my CrossFit blog (and my Christian blog as well).

I’m planning my workout schedule this week.  Seeing what I need to work on.

I’m focused on the Open, trying to string together longer and longer moves.  Praying I get my handstand walks before the Open but knowing I have a long way to go.

I’m researching Comps (I have one in January and one in February, but I want to squeeze one more in in-between before the Open).

I’m writing up my 2018 goals and the most complete and specific are my CrossFit goals.

And in between I’m watching it snow!

But I have problems.

I readily admit them.

“Hi.  My name is Jen.  And I’m addicted to CrossFit.”

Happy New Year!
