For those who don’t know, color runs are races (generally 5k, generally untimed) where you get colored powder thrown at you in the middle of the course. In this case, there were four colors (yellow, pink, orange, blue) throughout the race and then glitter at the finish line. Then at the after party they give you even MORE powder for “color throws” where everyone just throws their powder up in the air and it gets all over everything.
Look, I’m writing about something that’s not aerial! It’s almost as if I do other things occasionally (which I totally do – I go to work, do my homework, eat, and sleep!). Incidentally, this “story” is about work.
For the past several months, I have been working with a team to develop a new process which allocates funding for emergent, unplanned work. It was the reason for my last business trip, it typically involved having four (or more!) meetings a week, and it was generally a massive part of what everyone on the team has been doing for most of 2015. More importantly, though, we officially released the process on April 1st and it has been a huge success.
I was actually going to try to diversify my posting topics a bit, I swear, but then I had the best aerial day ever yesterday, and then another super good aerial day today, and I’m so excited that I just have to write about it. I’ll talk about something else another time.
So yesterday I passed my climb test, and then I did two inversion progressions on silks, and then I successfully pulled off a seahorse on trapeze. And today I got a push me, pull me on silks! All of these are things I have been trying and failing at, so it was incredibly vindicating to finally succeed.
But, since not everyone who reads this is as obsessed with aerial as I am, let’s talk about what those things actually are.
I’ve been really busy lately with all of the nonsense that comes at the end of a semester (and trying not to compromise my aerial schedule), but I haven’t disappeared, I swear! Upcoming posts are pending.
