Yes, time flies. 1/12 passed for 2014. And I feel likethat I did not do much for this year yet.
First, I ran 176 miles for Jan, it was the highestmonthly mileages I have even run. I know I could do better, but I decided to slow down. I was stillunder "recovery" after the December Marathon.
Did a few speed workout, and I also had a very good training this morning for 14.5 miles.I still kept writing blogs for my running:ericfang.blogspot.com. It might be boring for most of other people, but I think it is goodhabit for me, especially it is good for recordingmy training. Another benefit is that it help meto remember other runner's name. I am one of thethree asian runners in the club, so it is easy forothers to remember my name. But I am not good at remember other's name. I kept calling Alison as Wendy for two years; And I messed up Beth's namewith Nancy just because they both have thebraids. But It did help me another way.During last Tuesday's workout, one girl ran with me and kept talking to me since we ran CIM together(she qualified Boston), and I foundher name later when I checked my blog back home.
One insurance agent called me last week and askedme whether I was interested in selling somefinancial products since I have the license.I told her that I would still focus on the mortgageside, that's my strength, and I can help my clientsget better rates.
My rates are still among one of the bests, so it didhelp me get business even at this slow market. Janwas the best month for the last 8 months(after therate went up), And Feb will be good as well since I have plenty loans in the pipeline.
Currently I am working on the licensing for other states.If I pass the test this Friday, I could do loans for a few more states, like WA, TX, etc. We are stillworking on getting more lenders.
Wish all of you have a good time, especially thoseChinese celebrating the Chinese New Year, don'teat too much, unless you can burn the fat by runningmore than 10 miles.
