Yes, lately there has been too much
good on MY PLATE. After my trip to London,I immediately embarked in a new project. My very fist full time job ever, Coaching.
This job could not come at a better time. I've been disable to train at a higher level for the past 8 months and this opportunity along with my Community service with In The Arena and Run With US! have kept my plate deliciously full.

On the civic aspect, ITA after school tutoring program is rolling again. Now with new changes (positive ones) in schedule. We will start tutoring Mondays to Thursdays from 5:00- 6:30p.m . The first hour will be devoted to homework and the last 30 minutes will be all about being active and putting into practice all we learned in the summer with Run With US!, so the last half hours the kids will have an active activity.From time to time, I will spend a few minutes to go over some nutrition and goal setting tips from RWUS! with the kids. We have to keep the information fresh just like our dinner plates. This past week we had extra help. A few of my brothers and sisters were in town and spend some time with my ITA tutoring kids.

In the name of all of our kids that beneft from this program, Thank You Tierra Nueva, Immigrant Resource Center, In The Arena and Run With US! for contributing to make the after school program better and better each year. Our kids are excited to work hard this year and achieve some goals they set this summer during RWUS! Quite honest, Im am amazed of how much can be done when one is not fully training. Even though, I've been out of the competitive Arena for a while and at times miss it, I am very happy and excited to utilize this time to explore the professional side. No doubt there is indeed time for everything in this life and today Im absolutely happy to a full PLATE!
