Wow guys, the last three weeks have been SUCH a whirlwind! First, sorry about the radio silence! I’ve hardly had time for sleep, let alone keeping you all in the loop. So I guess its time to start catching you up on everything thats been going on…
#1: My first triathlon is TOMORROW!!! I’m getting really nervous, I can’t believe I’m racing already. Its been really hard to fit training into my schedule the last couple of weeks because of items #2 and 3. But I think I’m ready. I’ll get in a short easy run today and maybe some yoga to keep my muscles moving. Hopefully I’ll start my triathlon career with a bang Sunday!
#2: I have been offered a HUGE promotion at work. I am the new store manager at Great Outdoor Provision Company in Greenville, NC. I am really excited about the new opportunity. I’ve been at the store training all week, and the staff there have been really welcoming and helpful with my transition into the shop.
#3: Because of the job offer, we’ll be moving to Greenville, NC. We’re going to move slowly. I’m in Greenville now, staying in a hotel and working on finding a place to live. Andrew has a contract with the Whitewater Center that ends in November, and our lease ends in November. Sometime this fall Andrew will join me in Greenville.
#4: This is the one I’ve been dreading sharing. Because I am starting a new position in a new shop in a new city, Andrew and I have decided to delay our thru-hike. Don’t worry, we will still complete the hike, it’ll just be sometime next year. Hopefully you all choose to keep following along our now-extended training timeline and the thru-hike eventually!
