When life throws a curveball …

In a quick turn of events, things for me personally have changed as I have accepted a job in Richmond. Kind of weird that I’m training for the biggest race of my life and I’ll be moving to the host city in a few weeks. I won’t have so far to drive now. I’ll be blogging about this more on my myspace site once my self-imposed myspace ban ends in a few days.

My point on here is to address maintaining a training schedule once I start moving. My goal, obviously, is to stay on track, but I know it may be a bit hard. Moving furniture will provide some good cross-training days, but my biggest concern is putting aside time for my long runs and not having long breaks of not running mixed in. I will miss having my weekly morning group, but I am sure that I will find plenty of support in a considerably larger city. I’ll start looking this weekend for help in that aspect. At the same time I have worries about my training, I’m excited to have somewhere different to run. It’ll be a great way to get to know the city better.

Lastly, I will be changing my URL at some point soon, so I’m not locked into the city I’m living in now. I thought of that when I first started blogging and wish I would’ve chosen something different. I’ll let you know when that happens.

    Congrats on a new job. Many years ago I relocated, switched jobs all at the same time I was training for a marathon. It can be tough to juggle all of it. Best wishes on both!
