This picture was taken at a LA Jets Meet 2008 Birmingham High School 6 Years ago. It seems as if it was just a year or two. A lot has changed but many things are, for now the same. I still have the same passion and drive for the sport I love so much. What has changed is that, I now have new “hobbies” that compete with track as something I could do day in and day out as time allows.
My original focus of TrackMom.com was Age Group Track oriented,now it will be a much broader scope of age group through Pro’s and also much broader topics and post that will reflect my above mentioned interests and passions.
My focus as a TrackMom has not changed, but I do focus on much more now on how track affects her academic and future life endeavors . Fortunately she has always been a very good student and I didn’t have to monitor so much. Now she is still a good student .But trying to get extra academic activities in with training and regular school work is tough. Need I mention a social calendar, I would have loved but didn’t have much of as a teen.
She is a Student Athletic Trainer at Oaks Christian and she takes her job seriously. I am laughing while writing this because while it is a good introduction to the field it really is just a truck load of fun for the kids to be out there on the field while the game is being played. Heck parents pay to be on the side lines(which I am not one) and enjoy that view as well. Lots of things are important and I am blessed She and WE all enjoying our new journey.
A male colleague of mine earlier this week said that “You think very linear”… He went on to say, many men do but he felt women rarely do. I said “is that good or bad?” It is true, I can be very much like a horse with blinders and the finish line is the only goal,very methodical not a lot of fluffy decorations in my way of seeing the world.
So yes, I may be more “linear” but I still want to expand my interests pool of topics and I hope you will drop me an email and let me know just what you want to see and hear about on TrackMom.com What Are You Thinking About?
Until Next Time
