No.. not the kind that you write things down in.. that would just be weird. But I AM a planner.. (and I have one!). I like to plan stuff! Seriously, you should see how many ‘College plans’ word documents that I have.. They all have the classes that I need to take in order to graduate with whatever major/minor I wanted at that point. Yes, there are multiple. Eleven to be exact. Yup.
So it’s no surprise that I like to plan EVERYTHING. I mean everything. I have an excel spreadsheet for expenses that goes through NEXT December. I have a document that has ideas for what I want to do once I finish school. Honestly. I’m a planner.. I should have went into event planning, I’d be AWESOME at it!
Anyways. Since I plan my life, it’s no surprise that I already have the races that I want to do next year planned. No, I haven’t registered for any.. yet.. But I do have an excel spreadsheet for them.. Check it out.
As if you all needed MORE proof that I’m insane, right? Crazy thing is, I still plan on doing triathlons and want to get in a half ironman possibly too. But I might hold off on that until the following summer. We’ll see..
The funny thing is, for as much as a ‘planner’ as I am.. I’m also pretty spontaneous. More like I like to do things on a whim without completely thinking them through.. Not always, but sometimes. Groupon is a website for people like me.. Honestly, I would have taken 10+ trips if I had the money for a spontaneous trip and the time to take it.. Sadly I don’t have the money for the trips that I want to take.. Ode to being a poor graduate student.. (I WILL go to Italy sometime in the future!!)
Oh. and incase you’re not a runner, or you’re not like me and look at the amount of money that we pay for races.. let me tell you. It’s A LOT! The $387 is just the races that I still need to sign up for.. not the ones that I’ve already paid for, or the triathlons that I did this summer.. Aka: LOTS of my money goes towards racing. Surprise, surprise! 😉
