I haven't blogged in FOREVER! I kind of lost my motivation to do so after the half marathon. I ran the Buffalo Half and it was pretty much a disaster, mostly because it all of a sudden got REALLY hot, and also because injury had kept me from continuing my training. I have been running sporadically but not like I had been.The heat and humidity are making it very difficult, and it seems to zap my motivation. I did get a nice shiny new bike a few months ago, a Quintana Roo, which I love riding. I can easily go out and do 10 miles and have fun with it. That seems to be my exercise of choice lately. I am actually registered to do the Summer Sizzler Duathlon next month- it is a 2 mile run, 13 mile bike, 2 mile run. It is the shortest I have seen and the distances are not overwhelming to me. So my focus is really just keeping up with running as much as I can in the heat and get faster and better on the bike.
Another reason for my limited motivation is a very big life change. We are moving to Philadelphia in about 6 weeks! I got the most amazing job and I am so excited about it. Moving is scary and stressful, but I am hopeful that it will be well worth it in the end. We found a house and are currently working on getting everything in place as far as that goes. It's a really great house and I am really excited about it. It's a quick walk to the train, which I will take to work on most days. I am hoping that I will be able to get out and do some more running now that I will be living in a better neighborhood and will have so many new and exciting places to explore. It will certainly be an adventure!
