On tap for this Tuesday? Well, I write all. the. time. about running and fitness, but I promise, I have so many more hobbies and interests.
I absolutely love running and active things. Fitness is a huge part of my life, and the basis for this blog. However, here are the things I do when I’m not lacing up and logging miles.
I’m a writer.
Whether I’m writing for my own personal pleasure or on deadline for a freelance assignment, writing has always been my first love. (In fact, I actually graduated University of Miami with my Bachelor of Science in Motion Pictures for screenwriting). It’s very hard for me to share my fiction with the world, but blogging and writing for other media outlets allows me to express myself via the written word. I prefer pen and paper to the keyboard and I’m fairly sure a day doesn’t pass without my spending some time just writing.
I decorate cakes.
Completely self-taught, I’ll have you know. When we first moved to North Florida, I had left my job and really had nothing to fill my time. I loved baking and decided to try my hand at cake decorating. I only bake for friends, and it comes in handy for little man’s birthdays.
I love being behind the camera
I am a very behind the scenes kind of person. Photography is one of my hobbies, although I haven’t had much time to spend on it lately. I have a trusty DSLR, but I also go with the notion that the best camera to have is the one in your hand at the moment. I like doing photo shoots for friends, but I really love taking pictures in new places. And photos of food.
Helping out is my jam.
If you read here enough, you probably see that I do a lot of volunteer work. I am currently the VP of little man’s PTA, the Assistant Cub Master and Den Leader in his Cub Scouts pack, and am often out and about on beach cleanups or assisting at different events. I love doing my part for the community and hope that I set an example for little man to instill the same values in him.
I have a wanderlust “problem.”
I admit it, guys. If I could be doing anything, it would be traveling. There are so many beautiful places in this country and in the world, and I want to see them all.
There are certainly worse hobbies I could have, but it does get pretty tough with scheduling. I’m so excited for our summer vacation – we will be taking a New England road trip, and it’s going to be amazing, especially to get to share it with little man!
I am hoping we can swing an Alaskan cruise, a European trip taking on Ireland, Scotland and Iceland, and a tour of the Southwest in the not so distant future. And I’m also still chipping away at the 50 Races in 50 States goal I set for myself.
What are your favorite non-active hobbies?
Do you get to spend enough time on those hobbies?
