I've now completed 2 weeks as a PE teacher, and I am pretty stoked on the job. I have 4 periods of PE, which means plenty of opportunities to be active with the kids (my PE teacher in Middle school was a short, pudgy, obnoxious guy who just yelled at us and never did any physical activity himself). Yesterday, I ran with the girls in each class for a total of 3.2 miles, and also did 40 pushups over the course of the day. The girls were pretty excited that I was running with them, and of course an extra opportunity to run (while on the job) is pretty nice.
There are races all.the.time up here, so hopefully I'll get back into that and train more consistently so this blog will see some action again. In the meantime, happy running!
