So as you can tell, I recently got my blog redesigned! I absolutely love how it came out and it’s been a long time coming. I just couldn’t decide how I wanted it to look and when I saw the lovely Leap Designs, I knew I would want to work with her. It it much more ‘me’ and I’m so glad that it is all changed up. It looks so much cleaner to me as well. There are still a few more small tweaks for me to update, but it should be totally completed by this weekend. If you are looking for a blog design, I totally recommend Blair from Leap. She is amazing, fast, creative and doesn’t cost a billion dollars.
Another big change for me is that I am going to be starting a new job on Monday, August 13th. Though I am very sad to leave my current job, my new opportunity is much more focused solely on social media and it’s a great opportunity for me to continue my career with what I’m most passionate about. When I started here, our facebook page was at 153 likes, and we just surpassed the 18,000 likes mark. I cannot lie, it made me a little teary. I have enjoyed learning a lot here and will miss all my emails from participants and the crazy schedule but I am very, very excited about my new job. And what can I say, I’m already considering running Long Beach this year… we’ll see :)
This week has been pretty busy. Monday morning I went for a little run in the morning but I was pretty sluggish. Monday evening was a ton of fun with a Kelly Clarkson concert with Kristy and Shea. Needless to say, Kelly is amazing live and it was a fun girls night out.
Of course, both B and I were totally sucked into the Olympics on Tuesday night cheering for the USA Women’s Gymnastics team. So that was a late night, with no working out on Tuesday.
Last night we went to a local restaurant that is called Lazy Dog that allows dogs on the patio for George’s 1st Birthday! If you have one by your house, you should totally go, the food is awesome and the environment both inside and outside the restaurant is fantastic. It’s not super expensive and we both got a box to take half our food home. We went with his best dog friend, Mogley. He belongs to a guy who works at B’s station, and they are usually partners on the ambulance, we hang out with the couple a lot. It was a nice evening and the dogs were really well behaved. Mogley got George a little Angels shirt. :) I even made them birthday hats in celebration.
Needless to say, this morning I was pretty tired and didn’t go for my run as planned. :/ Tomorrow morning I’m going to the gym and I am going to catch up this weekend by hitting up the Legacy Running Store Run Club meet up on Saturday and trying out a new spin class at our gym on Saturday as well. I wish they had better times for the class, but oh well, I will try to go when I can if I like it.
Hope you like the new look over here!
