Hi everyone! Yesterday was a loooong day. It was official moving day! We drove from Reading PA to Milwaukee WI! Seriously it was one of the longest road trips we’ve ever done in one day! The worst part was saying goodbye to my parents. My mom was crying of course, but my dad was also crying really hard which I did not expect. He couldn’t even watch us drive away. All of a sudden it hit me that I’m moving so far away and I took it really hard. In fact, I spent most of yesterday crying on and off throughout the day. It was hard for me to remember why I’m doing this when all I can see is how sad I’m making my family. But hopefully I start feeling better as the week goes on. If anyone has any tips for coping with these sad moving feelings let me know!
I had been dreading yesterday because I knew it would be hard to say goodbye. I also knew it was going to be one of the more boring legs of the trip. No offense to anyone who lives in the Midwest, but the scenery gets abut boring after a while and there are no fun distractions along the way until you hit Chicago. I’m clearly more of a mountain girl! Today we will be visiting my sister in Milwaukee for a bit and then heading out to North Dakota! I’ve never driven past Milwaukee so I’m excited to be driving through new territory!
If you are interested in reading my current trip report check it out over on Bearly Alaskan here! I have a bunch of trip stats over there, but here are a few more that you might be interested in:
Miles ran today: 0. But I did spend hours crying, I’m sure that burned some calories!
Best thing I ate today: Grilled Stickies at Eat N Park!
Cups of coffee: 2. I’m really going to miss Wawa!
Best car convo: Andrew clearly was trying to cheer me up so he asked me what marathon I would like to run if I ever choose to run one. I decided it would probably be Philly since it’s always going to feel like home to me!
Have you ever made a huge move like this? How did you deal with the sucky parts? If you could run any marathon in the US which would you choose?
