Crazy Busy

Good morning! This will be super short and sweet because I have a lot to do today.

Yesterday started out with a great run down Park Ave for Summer Streets. Woody and I went just over 4 miles, which is the longest post-injury run I've done. The road is very uneven and my foot was definitely hurting towards the end so I knew it was time to stop. I was super slow, so I know I need to work on my speed; I did pick up the pace for the last few blocks once I saw our finish line. We finished at Union Square (after turning back north at Houston), stopped by Trader Joe's and visited the City Picnic hosted by Whole Foods on 24th St (lots of great samples - yogurt, smoothies, iced coffee). Then we headed back home to pack.

That's what we're doing today. Packing. A few trips to housing works to make donations. A trip down to the new apartment to drop off the contents of our fridge so Woody doesn't have to deal with that tomorrow. I'm not excited about today, but at least it started with a good, albeit quick, workout. It's lightly raining and very humid. I hope this passes through before the move tomorrow. Very glad we have the reusable plastic boxes rather than tons of cardboard ones. Hopefully they'll shield our things from the wetness a bit better.

Okay, I'm out. Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Good luck with the move. It will all be so worth it. You'll definitely be safer there.
It will be fun learning a new area when we visit !
