Today was training for the spring semester of Girls on the Run! The Husband and I spent the entire day at headquarters (GOTR was started in Charlotte). I was actually trained last season, but since Iâ€™ve switched counties, I have to be re-trained under Charlotte policies. Iâ€™m really excited to get started and be a head coach for the first time. Doing it with the Husband is an added bonus!
I only got six hours of sleep after Nicoleâ€™s partyâ€¦ So this AM, I required a lot of coffee and a warm bowl of banana oatmeal:
Training was well-organized and interesting. Plus, they fed us twice! 🙂
Anyone whoâ€™s coached for GOTR knows the best part are the Energy Awards. A deserving girl gets an Energy Award at the end of each practice.
This one is my favorite one. 🙂
Plus, I loved to watch the Husband practice the Energy Awards â€“ hahaha!
We also reviewed all the official procedures.
And I snacked on a bagel with hummus.
For lunch, a sprouts, hummus, basil, and veggie wrap.
And Baked Cheetos, which were the boooomb.
Last, but not least, we got our coachâ€™s box, which contains all the goodies for the season. One of the BEST things about GOTR is that everything is so organized and easy to follow.
Came home and snacked on a leftover vegan cupcake from Nicoleâ€™s birthday!
Guess what? We are actually leaving for VACATION tomorrow! I am very excited becauseâ€¦ let me tell youâ€¦ I NEED a vacation. :)
This trip actually began as a business trip because GOTR asked me to speak about Operation Beautiful at their annual summit. I said, â€œOF COURSE!â€ Then, the Husband and I talked about it and decided that he should come along, and we should extend the trip to make it a vacation for the both of us. So, I have to work on Tuesday but otherwise, the Husband and I are going to try to relax and enjoy ourselves.
Soâ€¦. weâ€™re going to pack and cook some dinner. And then I need to get to bed because we have (wait for it) a 6:30 AM flight out to Phoenix. :( Ugh!
