What’s next?

Sorry I have not been posting regularly, life had just been very busy lately. I just wanted to share with my followers. My husband and I have started the process of adoption. We have set up a go fund me account if anyone would like to help out. http://link.email.dynect.net/link.php?H=WpfRqTFmqv694QBxhWWqw%2F4KOnHQCEirdHUzekFHPbiYD3GShdnlomgs4hnyHyoBo%2FPqMP3q4IA%2B6iHrnXmYeDaemCzpSD24w%2FFZCwYgEfE%3D&G=21&R=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gofundme.com%2Fo2r3eg&I=20150306191716.02FB910F3248%40mail6-03-pao.dyndns.com&X=MHw3NzY2NjI6VEVNUElEXzQ5OzF8Nzc2NjYzOlFVRVVFSURfMjE2NzExOTc5Ow%3D%3D

Training week 1

Standard

Well I have started a twelve week half marathon training plan. If I follow the plan I will finish the week before I run my half marathon. Recap of the week.
Sunday – rest
Monday – 2 miles
Tuesday – rest
Wednesday – 4 miles
Thursday – rest

Friday – 2 miles
Tomorrow – 5 miles
I think tomorrow’s run will be hard because I haven’t run that far in a long time. Oh I got a garmin forerunner for Christmas and I am loving  it. Anyone else training for a half?

13.1 anybody????

Standard

Well, I have wanted to run a marathon for a very long time. I decided I should start with something a little more manageable. I will be running my half on April 11 along with my husband. I am not sure how I talked my husband into paying to run more than 13 miles but I
did. My goal is less than two hours and ten minutes. I am gonna try to publish weekly about my training. I hope everyone is have good December and enjoying the holiday season.

Getting ready for December!

Standard

Well, I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! My husband and I had dinner with friends. We even went black Friday eve shopping. We didn’t get into really bad crowds either, I got clothes, shoes, and my niece’s Christmas gift. Well I don’t know if I said this before, but I have been working nights for the last few months. So I have a hard time making it to the gym. So, I am going to join a 24 hour gym on Monday. I really want to be able to workout after work which these days is usually around 2a.m.. I am also setting a 60 mile goal for the month of December which is big for me. Oh Christmas tree goes up tomorrow so pictures to come! These are two of my Christmas projects.

Boat……..

Standard

So I got to experience what life on the boat is like. I went on my second DET, and it was on the boat. Well I guess the good news that I got from the experience is I don’t get sea sick like some others. This was definitely a different experience than anything else I have ever done. It took a little while to get use to the fact that the boat is almost always rocking. Also things run much different on the boat. I also learned how hard it is to inspect an aircraft at night with a blue light, it is difficult. I did get to sign off my first yankee DT out there I am a real dual qual now. So that is what I have been up too. I don’t want to go out on a MEU, I probably will at some point, at least I know I can handle it. Sorry about the randomness in this post. Have any of you been out on a boat/MEU? What did you think/any tips?

Well I will start off by saying I can’t believe it is already the end of October!  So, I said that I went on a DET in august and it was a lot of fun and a huge learning experience. I am about to go on another DET it will be short which is nice only about two weeks, but I will definitely learn what being on the boat will be like. So since my last update I went from day crew to night crew. I love night crew it means longer hours, but it is more chill and I like the people on my shift. I also became a dual qual plane captain, I guess that means I will be working on CDI soon. I talked to my command about putting in an ECP (enlisted to commissioning program) package. I have already started my flight physical and took the ASTB which I am going to retake in January. I will have to submit my package some time in March, which means running another CFT and PFT. Also I finally got a composite score but it is not even close to the cutting score. Well I think that is all for now. Feel free to leave advice on putting in a good package.

2014 so far…..

Standard

Well I haven’t written in a long time. I got to the fleet in March, and that was awesome. I love my job and my unit. I picked up plane Captain ashtray and will be a dual qual soon. I hopefully get an AO syllabus soon which means I will be able to fly. I have already been able to go on my first DET which was awesome. Well that pretty much sums up the last
five and a half months.
