JonI want to send a big THANK YOU to my big brother Jon Gettinger for making the FIRST donation to team Hoagie’s Heroes! I love you and you are awesome!

We are raising money for the Scope it Out 5K Washington DC Presented by Chris4Life and running the race in honor of Scotty’s fifth year colon cancer free.  Consider donating or joining our team!! And make sure no matter what that you become familiar with the signs and symptoms of Colon Cancer! 

There is so much good going on my life it seems to make the things that aren’t going as they should be seem magnified.  One thing I have learned about myself over the years is I am a thinker. I tend to have a very raw knee jerk reaction to something, then I step back and think about it –and ultimately fix or get to whatever it is I need to do.  People that don’t know me well tend to react from the initial knee jerk reaction and it obviously causes issues for both them and me.

The past few days I have been stuck in that initial knee jerk reaction phase and all I have to say is Thank God for good people in my circle. I asked for some pep talking and I got it. I asked for support and help, I got it.  And think I am now thinking and acting on some things that need to be cleaned up. I know I am being vague but sometimes the actual issue isn’t the point — it’s what you do when you are confronted with something that is throwing you off balance in your life. And how you work through the fear -of the unknown, of failure. It’s really about discovering yourself and making progress and change. It’s hard and sometimes it sucks and you go kicking and screaming–but usually what’s on the other side is so much better.

One of my friends yesterday shared this quote with me as a part of her kick me in the ass pep talk:  Leap, and the net will appear. -John Burroughs

I am going to keep that quote close to my chest as I work to make a leap….

A snowy morning in Northern VA! Nothing major but enough to delay the kiddos a few hours so the roads can be cleared. It looks so pretty outside and it was pristine at 530 this morning!

I only got up to 125# because my technique is off with the hip drive. It’s frustrating to know I can lift more if only my form was dead on. I have to keep working on learning how to use my hips to drive weight up! Bam!
