The Start

Hello all! This is  my attempt to start a blog about life, goals, excitement, and anything else that I would like to share. The title of my blog comes from an old Nike shirt that I wore while running track back at Smithson Valley Middle school. I don't even know if I realized what that quote and shirt would mean to me later on in life but it has come to define the way that I desire to live. Some might say that it means that I am super busy and don't have time for you. Others might argue that I am in way too big of a hurry. The truth is that I set goals and won't be held back AND when faced with trials I sprint ahead with the one who Saved me and Saves me everyday (that is Jesus). 
and of course I run and don't like to get beat and set goals! I plan on keeping you up to date on my running as well! In Runner's World magazine they totally reccommend writing down in a log your running I will. 

So we begin...

Last night G.R.A.C.E. Ministries (Girls Raised According to Christ's Example) had our summer kickoff concert with Lindsey Kane. It was amazing and she spoke some truth that all of us needed to hear. 

Today at 3 I must make an appearance at the Travis High School graduation where I helped write the smart speeches (I am the speech teacher). I find it odd that now at the age of 24 I got to aid in the writing of a graduation speech. They are good speeches too. 

At 6 I am having dinner with Lorretta Greenwood who has a husband who is in Iraq and a beautiful baby girl named Faith. Can't wait.

I have a few things that I MUST accomplish in the next year that I plan to start working on this summer!
1) I am going to run that marathon! San Antonio in November!
2) I am going to learn how to play the guitar. I know about 7 chords and need to get WAY better at strumming.
3) I am going to clean out that closet
4) we are going to (we meaning my husband and me) become executive managers
5)I am retiring from teaching


  1. WOOT WOOT for first blog entries! And I so need to clean out my closet too......and by the looks of it, it isn't going to be any time soon.

  2. what does excatly mean "retire from teaching"? Does that mean your retiring from summer school or school school? And if you don't teach what will you do? (Hey, you should come teach at my school! That would be so cool! We could so hang out together!)
