Remember when ...

I did this ...

(Ran for Logan High? I look so happy, I know.)

And then when I did this ...

(Ran for Utah State? 10 gold stars to anyone who knows where this track is located.)

I decided it was time to go back to my roots. I began coaching at a local high school about two weeks ago. I.love.it.

Favorite conversation so far:

Boy: I don't think I know any of your girls' names. What's yours?
Girl #1: Erica.
Boy: And what grade are you in?
Girl #1: 10th.
Boy: And what is your name and what grade are you in?
Girl # 2: Kandyce and I am a junior.
Boy: And what is your name?
Mindy: Mindy.
Boy: And what grade are you in?
Mindy: Uhm, I'm your coach.

(Behaviorist by day ... Coach by mid-afternoon and workin' the corner by night. Sigh. The busy life I live.)

that's so awesome! I'm sure you're a fabulous coach! AND... the conversation is funny... I once had that happen at my school... except I was not mistaken for a high school student, I was mistaken for a SIXTH grader! hmmm... yeah, the person was shocked to learn that I was a teacher, not a student!

Hey, Congrats! "Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life..." Right? As much as I dislike running, I think if you were my coach, I would learn to love it. :) You'll be fantastic!

I think this is a fabulous thing. You WERE my coach my senior year. You were the only one I would listen to, you know your stuff. Those kids are lucky to have you, seriously. I love it!

Your a coach!!! I love it! Track totally in Provo, it is looking at Heleman halls. Stars for me!! Hooray!! I am glad that you are not moving, sad that you have not met that special someone. I miss you.!!!

Katie said...

Yay!!! That is absolutely perfect for you! Are you going to specify which "local high school" it is??

Mike said...

You're working the corner??? That worries me. Also, I believe that track is at BYU.

Susan said...

Oh boy are those kids in for a treat! (: Congrats, you will be great!

Avree said...

Haha, well you haven't changed much since high school, that's what most people are striving for so I guess you're pretty lucky. It was so good to chat with you last night!

McCall and Eric said...

I have been waiting with baited breath! I am so excited for you. I feel like you were one of my coaches, and you are awesome! Yay, those kids are so lucky!
