On The Move

I’m on the move. Over the past weekend I moved from my house of six years to a bigger house a few towns over. I can say with 100% commitment that moving sucks. All of my things have been in boxes for weeks now and it’s getting ridiculous. I’m covered in bruises from running into boxes…

Moving bruises

All I can see are boxes…

Boxes everywhere

And unpacking them just creates a pile of more boxes…

Pile of boxes

I swear that this will ruin cardboard for me for life. I don’t want to see another box again ever!

The worst part of moving is how it has impacted my running. I have only run a few miles all week – and the miles I did run were painful. I’m lucky to be marathon tapering right now, so at least I’m feeling a little less pressure to get in the miles, but I’m missing running. I’m starting to get the no-running taper madness. I feel stressed, sleepy, and sluggish. I need a run, but there seems to be so many other things that need my attention (boxes!). I’m sure the cross training of hauling, cleaning, moving, and unpacking is good for me, but it just isn’t running. It’s time for a real run! I’m just going to unpack one more box first…
