Update on the Chiropractor

I've had a few people ask about the business, so I guess it's time to update you. Things have been going as good as a new business can in this economy. We've been able to cover our overhead every month, so that makes us happy--luckily we've gotten away with very low overhead here in Cali. A few months ago, Adam started working for another doctor on the side to bring in some extra dough for our apartment. Unfortunately it only lasted a few months. The doctor didn't keep up with what they had originally negotiated, so they both agreed it just wasn't going to work. And even though the money was helpful it wasn't enough for the time Adam was wasting on him when it could be used to build his own practice. Which brings us back to this. We are hitting it hard with an awesome August promotion, so if you know anyone that needs a chiropractor in the Sacramento area the time to let them know is now. I had a lot of fun creating this flyer--I can add Marketing Manager to my resume now! :) We have this posted on our door and we printed up 5x7 cards that we've been taking around to all the local businesses and such. We really hope this will give us a good foundation to go on since the summers are slow for chiropractors anyway. We look forward to a good month and many, many more to come! Even though times feel tough and making ends meet is hard, we know this is what we should be doing and we are loving every minute of it!

You Would Not Believe It!

If any of you ever watch Little Einsteins you would be hearing Leo's voice while reading the title to this post just like I am! :)
Yup, that's me. I ran a 5K! Should I say it again? You would not believe it! I almost didn't! I'm sure my gym teacher was laughing her head off somewhere. I am not a runner! I did everything I could to get out of running the mile in high school. I was even lucky enough to get in a minor car accident and I milked that for at least 3 weeks! My sister's the one that started it. She's been training with a friend of hers for quite awhile--their next step is a half-marathon. No, you will not be seeing any pictures of me doing that! So, anyway, she signed up for this thing on the 4th of July and my Dad decided it would be kind of fun, so he signed up too. The charity that was hosting the run accidentally charged my Dad twice and they didn't call him back to fix it, so he asked if I wanted to do it. Mind you, this was 3 days before the big day--I said, "sure, why not, sounds fun." Adam and I ran Friday morning for about 20 minutes. I felt pretty good, thought this would be a piece of cake! I finished in 36 mins 48 secs. To all those real runners out there, I know that stinks! But for me, I was so proud of myself. I ran the whole way, except for the few seconds when my ribs were about to collapse on me after I downed a cup of water they were handing out! See. I'm not a runner--everyone knows you don't drink that water! Wowsers! It was very exhilirating! My favorite part was seeing my family waiting for me at the end when I knew I actually did it! I didn't give up! You might even see me doing it again next year! :)
