I ran a half in Nashville, just to see how it felt. I hope you get that sentence. If not, it's ok. To my recollection, I was on Pintrest (looking at things non related to food and crafts) and found the Nashville Country Music Marathon and Half Marathon on a top 10 list of races to do. I felt that it was close enough for me to drive....so why not? I signed up!
A few weeks, or months, I don't remember.... Yoga Girl, Rachel Brathen, announced that she was going on a U.S. tour in honor of her debut book, Yoga Girl. I was so excited that she was going on tour, I immediately checked the places and dates. Holy shit, she will be in Nashville the same weekend as my half marathon?!?!? Wowsa. It was meant to be. I have been following Yoga Girl for quite some time. Her eloquent, raw, honest writing drew me in immediately, her amazing and beautiful yoga poses struck me as fascinating. I had to meet this amazing yogi.
After following her facebook page for weeks, registration for her tour was finally open. I remember going into a yoga class on that day and at that time that registration opened, thinking that I would sign up after my yoga class. I blissfully walked out of yoga, stepped into my car and proceeded to do the usual checking of the phone and email. I checked out yoga girls page and clicked on the links to sign up. Holy shit, SOLD OUT!! Awe man, what a bummer. I really thought it was meant to be.
Life proceeds, as it always does. Ready or not, here is life....moving on, moving on......
So a couple of weeks later or months? I don't remember. Yoga Girl sent out a notification.....she was adding classes to some locations. HOLY SHIT! I immediately dropped everything to check out her page and see what locations.........HOLY FRIGGIN' SHIT.....she added a 2nd class for Nashville....the DAY AFTER MY HALF MARATHON! Holy alignment of the stars batman! THIS was meant to be! Hell yes, I signed up immediately and secured a spot!
TO BE CONTINUED!
