a quick update

Now that I look back on it, January was a bit of a crazy month. First off, I ran 61.9 miles all month. That's a lot, even by my lax standards! I even took nearly a few days off after spending a lot of time at the hospital. I am hopeful that February will continue this pace ahead of the half marathon in March.

So my big news is ... my roommate Lauren is moving out (boo) and my boyfriend is moving in (yay)! I have such conflicting emotions about it. I'm so sad that Lauren is leaving - I cried when she told me, and I've been trying to ignore my sadness as her moving day approaches. I knew she'd head back to New Jersey eventually, but you never quite know when these things are going to happen, now do you. But, I'm trying to look at the positive - I'm very excited for this step in my relationship, and the boyfriend and I had a good, long talk about it. It kind of felt like we were inevitably going to take this step, y'know?

We're both taking tomorrow off work for our birthdays (his is tomorrow, mine is a week from tomorrow). We're taking a 2.5 hour drive to Ikea to furnish our new space - it's going to be an office/Wii room/KNITTING room (which I am so psyched about). I plan on buying a Poang chair. Oh and I think we're going to detour to a Chipotle near Richmond. Fun day!


  1. Congrats on your mileage for January! That's a super achievement - keep it up. Yay for the boyfriend moving in! :) Oh, and I have a poang chair and it's where I do all my knitting! I love it!

  2. Congrats on your new living situation! (That sounds funny.) And early happy birthday! =)

  3. Congratulations on the big step. You will utterly and completely LOVE the Poang chair! I have a similar one (the cheapest model, but same basic chair) and I sit to have my coffee at least a few times each week. I'd have a houseful of IKEA furniture if I could. Enjoy your day!

  4. definitely sounds exciting! woo hoO!
