Jill of all trades

I guess you could call me, "The Jill of all trades and the master of none". Just when i was begining to take off in running, i was pulled out of my little comfortable world and tossed into triathlons. In the midst of my unbalanced training schedule, injury crept in and utterly rocked my world. Going from doing the things i love, to sitting around and counting every little calorie that goes into my mouth is HELL. Some of you know what i'm talking about.

To dig myself out of this sort of hell, i have turned to 3 things. God, Physical Therapy and Yoga. I have found a peace with this trinity but amongst the peace, i can't seem to let Yoga just be a crutch i use when i'm injured. It has captured my heart, just like running has.

Running for me is unexplainable. "You like running -you ACTUALLY like it?", I hear from people all the time. "Yes, i do", i oddly reply. In today's world, runners are a rare breed. Yoga is similar. It is magically unexplainable. The feeling when i leave the class is peace, clear minded, vibrant, glowing. Why do i feel this way?

So with that question and along with my love for running, i start a new quest. A quest where i can sink myself into a new world: Yoga Certification. My certification starts in 10 days and will be held for 5 weeks. The schedule is a little crazy, but with a little organization, i should be ontop of it all -right?
