How's it going?

Hi Everyone,
I know I haven't been the best at keeping my blog up to date, but life has been difficult the past few months. I'm finally organized and happy and back on the fitness and exercise plan so all is good.

I've had a hard time with work the past few months, I just haven't been happy and work has, well it's been work. My mom always said that when work become work, it's time to find new work. I wasn't exactly looking for work, but it just so happens that a tremendous opportunity came up. After a lot of consideration, a lot of conversation with my awesome husband, and the advice of a couple of people I made the decision.

After 18 years of working in the Travel Industry, 15 of it with the same company, I've taken a new job. Not just any new job, something entirely different.

Now any of you who have been hanging with me for any length of time, know about my passion for the battle against breast cancer. I've walked the 60k's in 2 days a couple of times. I've been a team captain for several years for the CBCF CIBC Run for the cure. I've volunteered for them for a few years and I have been the volunteer run director for a couple of years.

Well, as of April 18th, I will be joining the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for a 14 month contract as their Manager of Volunteer Development. I am so excited about my new role!!!

I'll be working in Vancouver, and thanks to the West Coast Express, I'll be having a great daily opportunity to get in daily exercise. The train station is about 15 blocks from my new office. Almost 2km's in each direction, I'll be walking (quickly) as I'll only have 20 minutes from train arrival to start time to make it in on time. As well, from what I've been told taking your Lunch break is required and there's a ladies only gym just 2 blocks from my office so I should be able to fit in a minimum of a half hour work out each day.

I'm so excited about having this built in daily exercise. I can hardly wait.

I promise I'll update more often, as I'm back to my old self, happy and healthy. Take care....Katie
