Well hello there!
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written a blog post, and to be honest, I’m not even sure why I haven’t.
It’s not so much that I intentionally stopped posting or that I want to stop blogging, but every once in awhile I find myself with not much to say…
And it’s not because not much has been going on! I figured I’d pop in and share a quick update and then we’ll see how it goes from there, hopefully I’ll feel inspired to start writing more soon!
Not much new here! Still running roughly 3 times a week and I have a half marathon coming up over Memorial Day weekend. I had hoped to train for a PR attempt, but my running has been fairly up and down with some really good runs (like my recent 10k PR at the Cape Cod Beer Race to the Pint), and some really bad runs where I feel completely drained of energy and my legs feel like lead, so we’ll see how that goes!
I’ve been teaching a lot, but unfortunately going to classes and practicing on my own not a lot – I’m hoping that will change come summer when yoga on the beach starts!
Ah yes, school…
As I write this I’m sitting in the library studying for my final exam for my last pre-requisite class. For 3 years (a whole year longer than I planned!), I’ve been working my way through these pre-requisite classes I needed to apply to physical therapy school and here I am, finally about to complete them.
In just about 3 weeks I’ll actually be starting physical therapy school, and with that comes A LOT of change.
Jason and I will be leaving Cape Cod and moving to Boston for a few years while we both go to school. I admittedly don’t deal well with change, and I feel like we really found our home on Cape Cod. We have a great group of friends, a run club we love going to and I’ve gotten very involved with the yoga community. We’re comfortable here. We finally found a place we love living, someplace we really feel like we belong and now it’s time to up and move.
Making things even more difficult, we struggled finding a place to live in Boston and for a few weeks I was not only incredibly stressed about it, but I truly began to believe I had made a huge mistake. That maybe Boston was not the best choice – the cost of rent was crazy and we don’t even like cities, what was I thinking?!?
But, things finally came together this past week when with the help of my dad we found an AMAZING place to call home in Boston for the next few years. And not just a place we’re settling for, a place we are really genuinely excited about. (Honestly, I have no idea what Jason and I would have done without the support of my parents through all of this!)
I feel fortunate that we get to make this transition slowly, I think that’ll make it a bit easier to handle. For the summer I only have class Monday-Thursday, so I’ll be in Boston during the week and come back to the Cape on the weekends and then starting in September Jason and I (and Madison of course!) will be in Boston full time!
While I lived in Boston briefly right after college, I really am excited about exploring the city, finding new places to run and heading to the North End for some Italian food and gelato!
So many fun new things coming up and I can’t wait to share them!
What’s new with you??
Are you looking forward to summer?
