Lately I’ve been feeling so blessed for the amazing opportunities God is putting in my life. I want to share some upcoming awesome events/things that I’m excited for and looking forward to!
First, I can’t wait for my trip to New York City this week! I leave Thursday in the AM for a short trip to NYC through the business honors learning community that I’m a part of at OSU. I visited New York for the first time when I was 16, and I can’t wait to go back. The mini vacation is much needed. I’ll be returning Sunday morning- very early though (like 2 am!). Can’t wait to share pictures and memories with everyone.
Soon I will also be going to Italy and Ireland! I’m weeks away from that trip as well. It’s a study abroad trip through OSU. I leave May 10th for the trip and will be spending 10 days abroad- 5 in Italy and 5 in Ireland. It will be my first time flying alone and flying abroad! I’ll definitely be sharing more information about that trip when the time is closer…
I just bought new running shoes if you noticed my last Weekend Wrap-Up. Why? Because I’m running my first half marathon! This fall I’ll be running in the Columbus half marathon. It’s not until October, but I’m currently trying to find a half marathon a bit sooner than that. I’ll also be running 5k’s throughout the summer- like the Color Run maybe? 😉
I’ve been looking into different heart rate/fitness monitors lately. I’ve done research into all the options and I’ve finally made my decision to buy the Polar FT40 watch! I can’t wait to get it in the mail and try it out. Knowing me, I’ll never want to take it off! I considered the UP by Jawbone, but I realized that it wasn’t going to fit my needs. I wanted a monitor that tracked everything without me telling it what to do, and I wanted it to specifically count my calories and heart rate during fitness activities. I went for the FT40 because it is meant for people wanting to improve their fitness level. (i.e.: ME) I feel like I need to kick everything up a notch and that this watch will definitely help me!
Do you own a Polar watch? How to you keep track of your activity level?
Have you studied abroad? Where to?
What’s your favorite place to visit in NYC?
