I'm learning to trust myself to react. When I finally commit to doing something new, I'll often find that my body knows how to react and I'm able to complete the challenge. While it's still difficult to go for the skills that scare me, this realization is helping me build confidence. Oh yeah, I also competed in my first ever competition and took second. That was cool!

We have started taking swing dancing classes which was something I never pictured myself doing. So far, we have taken classes on East Coast, Charleston, and Lindy Hop. We will be starting an intermediate Lindy Hop class soon.

This past spring, we took an spur of the moment trip to Winter Park to go snowboarding and see a concert by American Authors. We had a great time, and something about not planning it out in advance made it that much more memorable.

I completed my first Spartan Race and am signed up to do another in the fall. It was definitely harder than I expected, but I really enjoyed (most) the obstacles. Here's a summary of our race, courtesy of Tonia.
At the start of summer, my sister, Stacie visited. We had a blast! We went hiking, completed the Tour de BCycle (40 stops in one day), listened to live music, ate a ton of good food, went shopping, visited with friends and family, and completed the Lookout Mountain Triathlon Sprint. This was our first triathlon, and it felt like an accomplishment to complete it. We also went with a big group to see Sweet and Lucky, which was a really cool interactive play. I highly recommend it. I loved having my sister visit and we had a ton of fun.

Eric and I went to Top Taco and enjoyed the unlimited tacos and margaritas. (Maybe a little too much!)
