The last few Weekly Wraps, I've been forgetting you tell you things. I feel like my post get too long and I wrap them up as quickly as I can... but I keep remember this awesome, sometimes funny things I wanted to share with you! So, today here it's a random collection of stories.
On the Phone With Yoga Baby
My 2 year old niece and I do yoga together... Well, as close as you can get to Yoga with a 2 year old child. On Sunday Mornings, she randomly calls me and throws her legs over her head and waits for me to do the same. We call that her Yoga Baby Routine, and she only does it with me. So, the Saturday of the Squirrely Tail Twail run, around mile 6, my phone rang while I was running, and it was my niece, ready for her Yoga poses. And of course, I answered it!
First she called me and sang me Let it Go and the song from Zootopia, I listened and sang with her. I passed a man wearing a Hello Kitty hat, while sang Let It Go into the phone, it seemed we had an understanding. Then she facetime me, and did her stretches. I had no option but to stop in the middle of the trail and show her my stretches. She then hung up on me. So I got up and kept running. She called again, but I didn't pick up this time.
I love this phone calls with my niece, before she came along, I would never offer my phone to my son to talk to anybody else, but now this moments are precious for me. It makes me regret not having done it with my son before.
What do you need your GPS watch for anyway?
A few weeks ago, I had this conversation with my brother
Him: Can I borrow your GPS watch?
Me: Yes, of course. Now?
Him: Nah, you can give it to me before you leave.
Me: Before I leave go to where? home?
Me: uhmmm.... how long do you want to borrow my watch for?
Him: only for the rest of the Semester.
Me: No way! how am I supposed to track my runs?
Him: Wait, you actually use your GPS watch? I thought you only wore it to look cool!
Me: I don't need to GPS watch to look cool! I am cool
Him: So, that's a no on borrowing your watch.
Me: Yes, that is absolutely a No on the watch.
My brother doesn't pay attention to anything I do. When I asked him later how much he planned to run, he said an average of 3 miles per week. Insert Roll eye here!!
A friend at work and I were recently interviewing a candidate for a job in our office. The internal candidate works in our York office, she was a single mom, who spoke Spanish ( I want to say that she is from Puerto Rico, but I'm not 100% sure and don't want to assume). Anyway, my friend asked me if I felt that I would be competing with her... his question surprised me, and made me ask him "Competing for what?" he didn't have a real answer, he just answered that he felt sometimes women can be competitive with each other.
I work with a majority of women, and have for most of my career. I have never felt competitive with another woman, in my head, we each have our jobs, we each have our strengths and our goals. Why do men think we are competing?
