Whoa. I almost forgot all about this post! Iâ€™ve been writing a “currently” post every two months for nearly two years. This is the first one I didnâ€™t have planned out in my heads weeks in advance. Not kidding. Usually Iâ€™ll be dealing with some random part of my life and think “oh, thatâ€™s definitely a ‘currentlyâ€™ thing”. This time? None of that. None. Maybe itâ€™s because Iâ€™ve been busy but really, I think itâ€™s because Iâ€™ve been so focused on whatâ€™s happening in the exact moment Iâ€™m floating in that I literally have not taken the time to reflect. Maybe thatâ€™s a good thing, but I kind of miss looking back on the recent crazy of my life…so here goes!
Which leads me to…what the heck have I been doing with my life lately? Honestly, living. A lot. And changing things up. A lot. Luckily, I like change because this is whatâ€™s been up, lately…
…living in Mexico. I wandered around Mexico City + Monterrey, played in the mountains + laid on a beach.
…enjoyed lifeÂ on a beach, for nearly a full week. Even I was shocked. More surprising; I miss the beach!
…rocking the socks off some new tanlines; most notably at my ankles + across my shoulders. Itâ€™s like body art.
…finally snagged a summit at La Malinche. More details on that story coming up soonly. Probably.
…inhaling salads like itâ€™s my job. Partly because Iâ€™m really enjoying them, partly because I have no stove.
…attempting to ramp up my miles in the name of training. Because, summer ultras.
…covering more vertical upness than miles per week, but Iâ€™m having fun doing it.
…sleeping in. Like, every day. I have not heard an alarm in weeks, I like the quiet sunshine wake ups!
…working, a lot. Even with all the exploring Iâ€™ve been doing Iâ€™ve also been hitting 40-50 hours/week. #adulting
…getting comfortable in a new culture + talking to friendly strangers on the trails. People are amazing.
…hand washing my clothes, because going to a laundromat requires too much planning. Itâ€™s surprisingly easy.
…not eating very many tacos, lately. But I ate them every. single. meal. at the beach!
…getting excited for my official summer to kick of in just over 10 days. Itâ€™s almost time to move into the #YourLead van!
…learning to understand myself + holding myself accountable for being me, even when no one is checking!
…feeling extremely thankful for technology — itâ€™s the reason I still have friends “back home”.
…making plans with new people while traveling + really liking the interaction.
…fighting off a very strong urge to impulse adopt a kitten, then train it into an adventure cat.
…sort of hating on my logical side that is vetoing this cat idea. Itâ€™s a multiple-times-a-day thing now.
…discovering that rain in Mexico is 42% petroleum jelly. Furrealzies, everything is deadly slippery when wet!
…loving on the almost daily thunder storms that roll through Monterrey. [I could live here, mabye, for real]
…watching way too much Netflix/Amazon Prime — I think I have 7 shows + 2 movies partially finished.
That is definitely not all I have going on right now, Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™m missing many important details but for right now…that is what feels important. Everything is going to get turned upside down again in two weeks and Iâ€™m okay with that. I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™m ready — I really do like it here in Monterrey — but, bring it on life.
