I had a fabulous run this morning. The sun is shining brightly in western Massachusetts without a single cloud in the sky. Yes, it may just barely be 30 degrees, but I love the sunshine! *Knock on wood* the winter hasn’t been nearly as bad this winter as it was last winter.
Last winter I STRUGGLED a lot with the cold weather. I was always cold and it made me really down and depressed. I also was in a really tough living situation that didn’t help in any way. I am happy to report that I am doing SO MUCH better this winter than last winter. That doesn’t mean that I am not ready to move to a warm climate in a year and a half, though.
I have been thinking about moving to Arizona, Austin, The Carolinas, or Orlando, FL. Any input or anywhere else you think that would be awesome to move to? My last/4th year of graduate school for my program is an externship year, so I can go anywhere I want and work for a year. This is definitely my opportunity to embrace a change and move away for a year. It will be hard to leave my family and dogs, but I know it will be for the best. Okay, I still have a year and a half before this happens, but it is still fun to think about! Any ideas?
Okay, back to the run thing. I ran with my Garmin on my run today and did a familiar route that I have been running for awhile. Before I used my Garmin, I always used gmap-pedometer.com. I always thought that this familiar run I did was 5 miles, but today my Garmin only said it was 4.75 miles. Realistically, that isn’t a big change, but I want to know WHAT TO BELIEVE. I always thought gmap-pedometer was accurate, but now i’m not so sure. WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?!
