New Opportunities = Big Life Changes! 10.1.2018

Good morning. Happy Monday. Happy October!!

This month is going to be FLOODED with newness for me. Big changes and new things to do, schedules to get used to, new people to meet, and I am exhilarated and ready to go!IMG_20180923_185054_155As you know, last weekend I ran my 5th marathon and absolutely loved it! While I didn’t PR, I had an outstanding and VERY consistent race – up to mile 22 I was running with only a 10 second variation per mile for each mile!! I am so excited to run the next one!! (Any suggestions?? Message me ideas!) This entire week I’ve been resting (for the most part πŸ˜‰ ) and relaxing now that my big race for the year is done.IMG_20180923_152814_853But that hasn’t been the only change that’s come in the last week or so…Β The time has come, and now you all must know.

I am leaving my full-time gig at H-D and transitioning into the fitness/wellness world again. To put it plainly, it was a “now or never” type of feeling that hit me about 2 months ago, so I began pursuing opportunities and voila! Here I am on the Monday of my last full-time week at my current job, and as of next week Monday, I will be onto the next chapter of my newest journey.Β I’ll be working at two gyms to start (personal training and teaching group fitness classes). This will start as all part-time, with ample opportunity for me to grow in the health and fitness world that I adore so much! I am filled to the BRIM with love and excitement and anticipation for what this new journey will bring me.IMG_20180920_074315_577I will miss my comfortable 8-4:30 time at my desk with my team, where I’ve been for the last 18 months. I have never done anything like this before, I’ve always worked at a desk and in a corporate role, and it was incredibly daunting at first thought. But once I sat down (multiple nights, multiple journal entries, multiple conversations with my sister/mom/Patrick) and I knew this was the choice to make. I did my homework and due diligence, and my brain and heart were pointing me in this new direction.

If you have any interest in my new career path, please message/text/email me directly and I would be happy to chat more about it!! This transition has been seamless thus far, but lawdy when next Monday comes, who knows what will go down. πŸ™‚IMG_20180921_064358Thank you to everyone who has supported me along this journey. Truly, I feed off your positive light and vibes coming my way and feel so grateful from the bottom of my heart for every single one of you. This is my time to grow and I am READY!!

I also have set a goal for myself to post a blog weekly, so I will be posting another blog shortly about some new nutrition/wellness/health goals I’ve been working on! Stay tuned! πŸ™‚

Peace & love always,

xoxo, Shannon
