Travel, runs, goodbyes, and more

Hmm, what to blog about?

* School is still going well. I've been making As on all my tests, and I'm looking forward to taking some more classes next quarter!

* I have my plane ticket to go visit my family in Florida next month. I'll be there for about 10 days, and I'm so excited to see my family--it's been over two years. I'm also so excited to go spend a few days with this girl:
We've been close friends ever since we were 16 and it's been forever since we've gotten to spend any quality time together! I need me some Amy time. =)

* I've been getting back into running, after being a huge slacker for quite a few months. I'm going to be running a 15k with my aunt and uncle while I'm in FL, and I have decided to do the Seattle Rock 'n Roll 1/2 marathon in June! So I have motivation as well as deadlines, which is what I always need to accomplish most things. I know I can do it, but at the same time, it is going to be a big challenge. I was running around the airfield on post (4.3 miles) this morning and thinking, "WHY does this always sound fun until I'm doing it?" Haha But running the 1/2 marathon will also be a "last hurrah" with a few of my good friends before they leave this summer.

* Speaking of friends leaving, too many of them are doing just that. The next few months are going to contain one goodbye after another. It's so sad. =( I've decided the hardest part of military life is not the deployments, as sucky as those are. It's saying goodbye to all the friends who become as close to you as family. But as the saying goes, "It's a small Army." There's always a good chance I'll run into some of them again one day at another post!

* I have a purring kitty in my lap. Does life get any better than that?


  1. A month a month a month!! :)

    "WHY does this always sound fun until I'm doing it?" Haha Aunt Terri was telling us that after her last race :P

  2. Great update! Love the running goals, I am trying to set up some goals myself :)

  3. I'm sorry you're going to have to say a lot of goodbyes, but I think you're right--there's a good chance you'll see many of them again! :)

  4. Awesome job with the running, Sarah!!! I'm sorry the half marathon will be a "last hurrah" with some friends but I agree with Jenny- there's a good chance you'll see many of them again!

    And no there's nothing better than a purring kitty in your lap : )

  5. Yay yay yay...I seriously cannot WAIT to see you!!!
