Social Distancing

What day is it? What week? What is real life like? I’m not sure about all of you readers out there, but the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing have really flipped things around in my brain. Without a daily routine outside of finishing online requirements, quick workouts, and isolation, the days have seemingly merged into one. That being said, everyone in my life has continued to practice CDC guidelines and we are all still healthy! I hope that each one of you are feeling the same.

Camping and COVID-19

Hello to all the readers out there! Man, it feels like a whole lot has happened since I last wrote to you all two weeks ago. 

To start off this blog, something I was eager to share was that I went camping for the first time since I was about 10-years-old! Two weekends ago my run club and I had a trail run out in the woods, so we turned it into a camping trip. My girlfriend and I, being the young members of the group, lacked all camping equipment and had to borrow from our teammates. The only thing that I had was an air mattress which, of course, had a leak and went flat after just a few hours – at least we had a tent over our heads! I ran the quarter marathon and ended up placing first in my age group!

My girlfriend also placed first in her age group and we received some fun first-place pint glasses as an award. After resting up for a couple of hours we got up and took off on a three-hour hike around the nature preserve. By the time I realized how crazy my club is and how tired I was we were a couple of miles away from the campsite! It was a fun adventure and led to some fantastic pictures you guys see included in this post. The weekend thoroughly wore me out (sleeping flat on the ground didn’t help) but I cannot wait to camp with them again!

Always on the Run

It is race season here in Florida and I couldn’t be happier! I have chosen as a 2020 goal of mine to try and attempt completing 20 races, be they weekend road races, obstacle course races, or an open water swim. While it may not seem like too many, 20 races equals about one race every two weeks, without much wiggle room to miss a weekend. It also means I have been spending a good chunk of my free time training–working on my running endurance and gait all while trying to fight off injuries that have begun to develop.

A Busy Couple of Weeks

The last two weeks have certainly felt busy and even though I have done so much, I still feel like I still have so much to do! My classes have been good, we had our first round of early assessment quizzes and I was randomly assigned all of my trimester presentations early this tri, so balancing studying with other course requirements has proven to require a lot of work.

A Busy Start to the Tri

Just three weeks into this trimester, and we have already hit the ground running! To start things off, we had our trimesterly Club Lunch event. This is an opportunity for the upper tri students to meet the incoming class, as well as give our student clubs a chance to showcase their activities and events for the upcoming trimester. The new students are then able to sign up for clubs and begin getting involved pretty much as soon as they begin their courses.

STOP...Clinic Time!

Hello to all the readers out there! I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and the New Year is off to a great start. I was able to really enjoy my month-long break with a visit home to Albuquerque. I spent some wonderful time with my family hanging out and eating some phenomenal home cooking. My girlfriend was able to come out for a week of my break as well, we had a fun time exploring across town and getting lots of tourist things done. After my visit home, I still had a couple more days of break to enjoy in St. Pete and even managed to fit a 5K race into the schedule. All in all, I was able to relax, rejuvenate and slowly start to get ready for my next trimester of school to start.

ChiroGames 2019

Every year, most of the chiropractic schools across the nation send students to Cocoa Beach, Fla. to compete in a wide range of sports against each other. This time around, NUHS – Fla. sent a Flag Football team and a Swimmer (me). Outside of the games, RockTape sponsors’ dinners and socials both nights of the evening in order to give students from every school an opportunity to meet one another and network. I was really excited to have friends I made last year from several schools that were able to come again this year and it was great to see them again!

November Already?!

This year has flown by at an insane rate! This trimester especially has gone by so fast I’m shocked that I am not falling behind, but am somehow managing to stay ahead of the assignments and exams that have been given, which has given me a little more time for fun the last couple of weeks.

Sports Council Miami

This weekend was absolutely amazing! I was able to head down to Miami, Fl to attend the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council (ACASC) Annual Symposium. This is a great conference that brings the best and brightest sports chiropractic minds together for a weekend full of quality education and great networking opportunities. This was my second year attending and it was my favorite symposium of the year!
