...Then I'm going to go to the sun.
One month from today I am quitting my job. And then a few days after that I am boarding a ferry to Bellingham, Washington. From there I'll have a week to make my way down the coast to run the Miwok 100k (north of San Fran.) on May 3rd. After that I'll head East a couple states and spend the rest of my spring riding my bike in Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico in preparation for the Great Divide Race which starts on June 20th.
To say I'm excited for this summer would be a pretty serious understatement. Not only will I be taking the summer off from work to run and ride as much as possible, but for most of this time I will be living outside on the Colorado Plateau.
Alaska is home in the sense that I currently have a job, apartment, and all of my stuff here; New York is home in the sense that I grew up there and my entire family lives there; but nowhere do I feel as much at "home" as when I'm in Southern Utah living outside. And lucky for me this is what I'll be doing most of the summer and likely into the fall. I'm not sure if I have enough of a credit card limit to fund this adventure but I intend to find out.
