Well, thanks to the inspiration of missredrunner and oneredhotruby, I've decided I am going to give this blogging thing a try. I've never done it before and I don't really think my life is extremely interesting, but I do love to write...and talk...a lot. So I'm going with it! I don't know how often I will write (blog), but I will give it my best...maybe. I'll start with a little bit about myself, and the things I will most likely be writing about. I am 25 years old, a teacher and a coach, I live in West Texas (heaven on Earth), and I have a pretty awesome boyfriend and extremely awesome dog. The only reason the dog goes over the boy is because he can't talk, and he always does whatever I say :) .  The boy is actually very amazing...I'm sure I will ramble on about him a lot...he deserves it. My dog is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Tuff...his name does not really fit him, because he is actually a princess with boy parts. He is very spoiled (my fault) and very laid back (not my fault, but I'm very thankful he has such a cool personality). He's never tried to fight other dogs or attack intruders coming into my backyard, so he isn't very "tough". But he is my baby, and anyway, I didn't name him to describe his personality, I named him after Tuff Hedeman, duh. When I get another dog, I'm going to name him Lane. Tuff Hedeman and Lane Frost, 2 of the greatest bull riders ever. Another love of mine (that I may mention from time to time) is rodeo. My best friend and I have been big fans since we were very young. Call us what you will (buckle bunnies???), the sport is awesome and the people are very cool.

Another thing I may talk about on here: My job. I teach middle school (6th-8th grade) and I have some interesting experiences. I will, however, refrain from going into too much detail or using names, since the Internet is a lawsuit waiting to happen (thanks Dad). I also LOVE LOVE LOVE to cook, so new recipes or cooking successes/failures may show up from time to time. Just know there is a major difference between cooking and baking...and I'm not so good at the latter, but I'm trying! I really like to read too...don't know how much that will make it into my blogs, but you never know. Random things...I like them.

And finally, I am going to use this blog (and hopefully some followers that I get) to keep me accountable. See, I recently rediscovered the HELL pure joy of running, again thanks to missredrunner. We discussed a couch to 5K plan one night while we were out, and the following Monday I started it. I am on Week 5 and doing much better than I thought I would. My secret to success seems to be the fact that I can get it done during school (I run during my conference period) so I'm not using my free after school time. AND I have a gym that I can run in, because (unlike you, Danielle) I absolutely hate running outside. I'm hoping to resolve this animosity between the outdoors and my running shoes, but it hasn't happened yet! Maybe someday I can blog about the joys of running in 70 degree weather up and down hills with the wind whipping through my hair (HA)...but for now I will enjoy the complete silence of the gym except for my shoes hitting the hardwood...
