New Faces and New Places

I’ve mentioned it a few times on the blog, but now it’s time to devote an entire post to this. I’ve moved! Or at least, am in the process of moving.

A little over three years ago, I up and moved to Ames, IA. I didn’t know anyone, and was fresh out of college. I got hooked up with the local running group and the rest, they say, is history.

Now, I’m up and moving again, this time to the Chicago area. I’ll be setting up shop (aka moving to) Naperville, and will officially get everything done and moved next weekend. I’m super excited for the change of scenery, being close to home, and of course new running locations.

I already hopped on the run with the Naperville Running Co; in my mind making the move “Running Official.” With a whole new set of trails and roads to explore, and a new training cycle coming up, I’m ready to roll.

Of course, my pulled muscle needs to continue to get better…but we’ll get there.

Naturally, it’s a little intimidating heading to a new town, again. Although, getting in with the running group is a great move to get to know folks.

I’ve already been told about a member of the club who will be excited I’m around, apparently because I’ll be close to his speed. Apparently, this dude was disappointed with a 2:50 at Berlin. So I’m thinking my training runs are about to get turned up a little bit. I know that’ll make me a better runner, though.

So if you’re reading this and have recommendations on places to run, things to see, and of course where to get coffee in the Chicago-land, let me know!!

See you all (hopefully) at the Chicago Marathon this fall!
