RT: You have a bachelors degree in history and a masters degrees in college counseling and youre working on another masters degree in history, plus you work 40 hours a week. How do you fit it all in?
JG: Im an academic advisor at Cal State Long Beach, my alma mater. Its not a very back-breaking job, and Im thankful for that. I advise students on classes with questions they might have. Its full-time, 40 hours a week, but I have a very supportive boss who is one of my biggest fans, and I can get time off for races. I live about a block from work, so I can go home on my lunch break to take my naps. I try to do everything I can to still be in that running lifestyle while Im working and enough to set money aside for savings. I love to be doing stuff and love to be busy, so its all working out very well. Working full-time and still going to school has really kept me on a system where I really have to be very efficient with my time. But I work better like that, under that kind of time commitment, because it helps me focus on what I am doing.
