EAGER FOR SPRING OPERAS, NEW FAMILY, AND RUNNING
During the last bit of winter, I start to get bad cabin fever. Do you experience it too? I’m itching to hit the trails and get to warmer weather. You’ll often find me scrolling through travel websites this time of year, lost in palm trees and beaches as I consider sunny vacations to one tropical location after another. Though the dreaming usually stops at the bottom of the page, just imagining a sunny day on the beach gets me through the long days of winter.
opportunities in Utah, they do miss Idaho. I’m excited to see what the future holds for them.
Something else I’m excited for is the start of running season. I’m planning on participating in the annual Race to Robie Creek this year, so I’d better get running! After Robie, we’ll be starting up our Run Club, which is open to anyone who wants to run (or even walk). Our PTs and staff, including certified running coaches like myself and Kayla, will be there, as well as supportive community members. It’s amazing how much more motivating it is to get outside and run when you’re doing it with other people. You can read more about Run Club and how to join inside the newsletter. I look forward to seeing you there.
While our family would be excited about a spring trip, there is enough going on this season that we’ll happily stick close to home. Our first grandson arrived on February 16th! His name is Jens, and we’re excited to spend more time with this new arrival to our family. On top of that, Jens’s dad, my son, Bryan, is performing in an opera in Utah, and we’re going there to support him and learn more about his passion. After studying music in college, Bryan sang in his first opera at the College of Idaho. Last summer, he was invited to an opera camp and immersed himself even more in the art of opera. The experience prompted him to move to Utah, where he’s currently studying at the Utah Valley University in their vocal program.
I have to admit that it’s been a bit of a culture shock to our family to see Bryan pursue his musical vocation. Opera is a little different from the Foo Fighters, which is more along the lines of what I usually listen to. Bryan admits the storylines can be cheesy. If they weren’t sung in foreign languages, you’d realize the storylines aren’t too far from a soap opera. They sound so much cooler in Italian or German! But we’re learning to appreciate this new medium, and I’m really glad we’ll get to be there for Bryan’s performance this spring. It’s been an adventurous first year of marriage for Bryan and his wife, Julia. They got married, moved to Utah, and now baby one has arrived. While Bryan and Julia have found some amazing
Have a great March, and until next time,
