Half-Marathon Training Week 1

It's time for me to get serious about my half-marathon training! I'm running the Rock n' Roll Half-Marathon in Savannah, GA this November. This run has been on my Bucket List. I trained SO hard for this run 2 years ago and on the day of the race I was 8 weeks pregnant with Sarah! I chose to sit that one out and since then have been dreaming of the day that I can FINALLY finish my first half-marathon! I've been running again ever since I had Sarah, and now there are only about 11 weeks left until race day. I'm switching my training runs over to the ones found on the Half-Marathon Trainer Pro - Run for Pink app. I'll be posting my training runs here so that I can keep myself accountable each week. I'll update this post once my workout is completed and post my stats from Garmin! Wish me … [Read more...]

Hi everyone! My name is Bethany McClure and I'd like to welcome you to my blog, Learning is a Journey! I started my blog a few years ago as a way for my students and parents to stay up-to-date on classroom happenings. Since then, I've expanded my blog to not only include topics pertaining to teaching and learning, but also topics that are important in other areas of my life such as my family, running, music, and Auburn to name a few! I would love for you to take a look around and follow my blog via one of the options listed on the sidebar! Here is a little bit about my sweet family... I have been married to Scott for 4 years! We met at Auburn University. War Eagle! Scott was getting ready to graduate with his engineering degree and I was finishing up my 2nd year of teaching 1st grade at … [Read more...]

I'm so excited about my new blog design! I've been working on it all week. I've decided that I just can't manage two blogs anymore so I'm combining my teaching and personal blog into one. I hope this will bring a bit more variety to my blog as I include posts related to teaching, as well as my family and personal interests. Watching the War Eagle/Roll Tide special on ESPN2 this morning really made me excited for football season. I can't wait to see Sarah in her new cheerleader uniform! Only 3 more weeks... WAR EAGLE! I've just finished reading Chris Powell's Choose More, Lose More for Life. He and his wife Heidi Powell are so inspiring to me and I'm hoping that by following their Carb Cycling plan I can lose my last 15 lbs (or more!) to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. It has … [Read more...]

Thirty-One Round-About Caddy!

Since joining Thirty-One, I have been finding SO many ways to organize our daily life with these products. One product that we use daily is the Thirty-One Round-About Caddy. We have two of these that we use for completely different reasons. We use one Round-About Caddy to hold all of Sarah's bath items, and the other we use for pool and outside toys. The Round-About Caddy retails for $25 and it has a mesh bottom. It also has water resistant fabric, so no need to worry if it gets wet. It can easily be wiped clean! Uses for the Round-About Caddy: bath items bath toys shower caddy make-up holder pool toys gardening supplies craft items crayon holder snack holder How would you use the Round-About Caddy? I would love to hear your ideas on how you would use this item at … [Read more...]

Thirty-One Launch Party Giveaway!

I am SO excited that I've recently become an Independent Consultant for Thirty-One Gifts! I have always loved Thirty-One products and am so excited to offer them to my friends and family. So, why did I join Thirty-One? When I was expecting my sweet baby girl, my first grade class gave me a Thirty-One bag full of baby items. I have used that bag so much (Organizing Utility Tote)… especially when traveling. It is the perfect size and has just enough pockets for all of the baby items I need to take with me on the go! It also makes the perfect "teacher  bag!" Since receiving that bag, my wish list of Thirty-One items has grown… As a consultant, not only do I enjoy trying new products but I also love helping family and friends find the perfect gift or organizing accessory to make their lives a … [Read more...]
