living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

In limbo

This week and next are nothing but difficult when it comes to running. Personally and professionally, there is a lot going on. While I have plenty of time to run, it's hard to focus on it. For a very short time, I'm staying with my sister, so this week I've been familiarizing myself with a new neighborhood to run in. While I will miss the benefit of Lynchburg's steep hills, I already realize that Richmond has some good hills to run on.

After next week I'll once again have a new neighborhood to adjust to. Despite the stress of a new job and moving, from a running standpoint this is great, as long as I get up and do it. For a couple of weeks I have to run in one neighborhood, while this weekend I'll get one last long run in Lynchburg. Then I'll have my neighborhood to discover on foot ... before I know it, it'll be October and the Richmond Marathon will be a month away. I am hoping that I can incorporate some of the marathon path on a couple of my long runs. I like running in new places, and quite honestly I was getting tired of seeing the same things every morning.
