I am back! I never left, I just didn’t post because I have been generally overwhelmed for the past 6 months. After many failures, and many “incompletes” in my life, I have finally learned that in order to succeed, one MUST prioritize. Actually, I have been using the term “triage” a lot because it’s a lot more accurate. Speaking of more accurate terminology, let’s call my failures and incompletes “not yets”, like we do in ABA.
I have, however, during this blog-intermission, been following blogs and reading books on running, fitness, and nutrition, as well as continuing my own little experiments with my own. Also, many of the goals I have discussed here, remain unchanged: I still want to change the world with ABA, I still want to run, and run well, at the Boston Marathon, I still want to lose 5-10 pounds, I still want to learn to manage my health (read: auto-immune disease be gone!) optimally, and I still want my goal list to grow and grow.
I’ve had experiences since my last post (in March!) that I really want to share , they will come, one at a time. Right now, my plan is to post approximately once per week. I will supplement those posts with training updates for those of you who are also training for Boston, or for a BQ, or who are just plain interested in following along. Welcome!
Here is a brief run down of the aforementioned “experiences”:
- Completed my Master’s Degree
- Finished and defended my Thesis (as a part of above)
- Got a job as a Behavior Analyst on an amazing grant funded crisis team (I am sure I will post lots about this)
- Took the BACB exam (behavior analysis certification board), results posted in November (eek).
- I re-applied, and was accepted to the Boston Marathon 2012!!!
- My foot has healed nicely, still sleeping with a splint, but I can run-run-run.
