My First Half Marathon



The rare non-music post.  I finished my first half marathon last week and it was a pretty big milestone for me.  When I started running, I had a hard time even running 60 seconds at a time.  Hard work, dedication, and training pay off!  That applies to clarinet practice as well of course.

I’m enjoying a cup of coffee before I fly back to Dallas today. I did have a little down time while in Rochester so I was able to visit Susan B. Anthony’s home and fit in a 10 mile run along the beautiful canal path (my half marathon is in less than a week!). Of course, I had some delicious New York pizza. There aren’t any pictures of that since I was pretty famished after the run!

I’m playing the best that I ever have so I’m ready to get back to Dallas and do some more practicing. Looking forward to starting the season, I have some good concerts coming up!

I've Been Just a Little Busy...

School is back in session here in Texas so of course that means scheduling private lessons for the five wonderful schools that I teach at!  Between that and practicing, this is why none of you have heard from me for weeks.

Since I always have students asking about events around the area, one new addition to my website is there is now a “Student Opportunities” tab on the right hand toolbar.  This is going to be an ongoing list of local upcoming events, competitions, workshops, and other resources.  I will update it regularly.
Aside from being busy with back to school activities, I made a trip back to Georgia to visit family.  I was also supposed to go to New Orleans last week but decided to cancel since the weather was less than ideal! 

Next week, New York!
