Spin Instructor...To Be!

This is the longest I've gone without blogging; a whole week!
What is my excuse reason? Because I've had a relatively boring week, and I didn't really want to bore you with the deets!
 Today is the first time in almost 2 weeks that I finally feel good! I haven't done any running just because I've felt miserable. I sure am missing it! 
 I did go to spin class on Tuesday. A couple weeks ago I mentioned how that I might be able to start teaching Spin, and that I was going for an interview. Well, I did that on Tuesday, and I start training in June, and will start teaching in July!!! They also want me to teach Pilates and a strength class.

 I cannot put into words how excited I am!! This is just a dream come true. It will start out as part time, volunteer. But they will teach me everything, and even pay for my certification, if I choose to get certified. (Umm...yes!!!) Hopefully someday it will turn into a full time position. And even if it doesn't, eventually I would be able to go somewhere else and already be experienced.
 Now, let me tell you how terrified I am!! TERRIFIED! I've always hated public speaking. I am horrible at it! I've had to do it a couple times and I always feel like I humiliated myself because I was so nervous! So now I will be speaking in front of a group, while trying to catch my breath! I feel like there are so many moves, how will I learn everything? What if they don't like me? What if they think I'm too tough (I'm ok with that) or too easy...aughhh!! 
 But I want to do this SO bad, and have wanted to for SO long, that I'm just going to crush that fear and DO IT ANYWAY! Hopefully they'll like me. :) 
What are your plans for this long weekend? I'm going for a 10 mile run tomorrow and I cannot wait!!
Are you running or racing?
Would you take my Spin class?



  1. I love that you're going out of your comfort zone to teach these classes, and following your dreams-- SO awesome! I know you will be great!

  2. Congrats to becoming a spin instructor! Sounds like a fun and exciting adventure. Happy Friday!

  3. Awesome - congrats!!! That is so exciting - way to go girl :)

  4. That is so awesome! I am excited to hear what certification you go for. Will it be separate for spin, pilates and strength? They are all so different!

    And don't worry! After a few classes you will be less nervous about the public speaking part! :)

  5. Congratulations! How exciting! I'm running 8 miles tomorrow and 28 on Sunday! I'm loving the B2B runs!

  6. I would definitely go to your spin class if it was local. That's so exciting! Congrats! I've got the Woodford Wag XC 5K tomorrow morning. Then we are off to Louisville for anniversary festivities. Excited!

  7. Congrats!! I have been taking spin since January and I am HOOKED! I love love love it!! It is a great amazing hard workout. Meeting with my running group in the morning then helping my husband install a new dishwasher!!

  8. No races; I ran my 5K last week and now I'm just killing time until it's time to begin training for Chicago!! I will run every day all weekend because I am sure to eat too much on Monday!!
    There is a parade in a small town near where I live and we have a couple of antique John Deere tractors that we take and drive in the parade. After the parade, I have family and some friends coming and I'm grilling hamburgers. I expect many desserts to arrive with the guests!!
    Of course, I'd take your spin class!!
    Have a great weekend!

  9. YAY! I was so excited to see your post in my newsfeed today!!
    I am SO excited for you Katie! You are going to be amazing! Life begins at the end of our comfort zone!! Wish I lived closer so I could take your spin class!! :) xoxo

  10. What a great opportunity for you! I would love to do something like this, it's a great way to keep fit and earn some money at the same time =)
