This week my focus will be on moving into our new place in West Seattle; although I am running. At 5 fracking o’clock in the morning with Son Ammon.
Ammon is showing me West Seattle and pointing out some very cool places to check out. The problem is I quickly forget them, which I am blaming on the early morning hour.
I have been thinking about the similarities of moving and running. I realized that they share a very important principle – when you drop your baggage and excess weight your moving and running will be much better.
Ok, I know it’s a stretch.
This week I have been in Seattle finishing up on an house rental agreement. Oh, if you didn’t know, Shelly and I are moving to West Seattle to be closer to family and enjoy the comforts of the big city – like
cheap inexpensive beer.
On Monday, Shelly started a new position with the Seattle School District and me, well, I have been scoping out the local landscape, which has required me to drink a few beers. Bartenders are a great community resources. They know the haps.
On Wednesday, Son Ammon took me on a running tour of West Seattle at 5:00 am. We had a good run inspite of my sore foot from running 162 miles last week. Learn some things concerning the layout of West Seattle, which is a good thing.
Next on the list is to move our stuff down from Friday Harbor and into the new house. Might happen this weekend.
Hummm, there’s something else I am suppose to do besides running, drinking and playing with grandchildren (not in that order though) – oh,
loo k find a job. Best move that up on the list some. (Resumes are available for viewing if interested. Contact me.)
Next week I will be posting – “What I learned from running a butt load of miles in a few days.” This article will have all those cool things I learned while on the road, like all snakes laying still on the road are not actually dead.
You won’t want to miss out on that one.
