First time home owner?

Well, kids.  Faster than a blink of the eye, I am on my way to becoming a first time homeowner!!!! 

So, I mentioned I will  no longer be an uptown girl. I will need help renaming the blog as I will be relocating to Brooklyn!  Send me an email for more specifics:)

So yes, as mentioned in the comments, I did run a half in January.  The half?  Personal worst but personal best as far as vacationing in South Beach:)  Considering I had exactly one long run before the run and had averaged an awesome 10 miles a week.  I’m pretty impressed:-p

Running has definitely taken a back seat with the impending events to come in the next few months.  As mentioned in the last post, I’m in the middle of the housing search.  Things have heated up to say the least and I’m still in love with the neighborhood I found a couple weeks ago.  I’m visiting a few places a second time tomorrow with an agent.  Is this real?!

I find myself wondering how it’s possible to be where I am but hey, we have one life to live.  Go for it.

I’m not ready to reveal to the world the possible new ‘hood due to my superstitions about everything.  I would hate for something to happen to cause this to not happen.  However, let me just say, I will have to change the name of my blog if I choose this destination;-)

So I missed a couple months here.  It’s been a little hectic with the job, life, etc.  Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten and things have occurred.

Anyway, today was the Cherry Tree Race for the Hardcore – 10 mile relay.  This is my FIFTH year running this race.  Wow.  Seriously has it been that long already?  Yep, Team Whippet, Speedy Beagles x 2, Will Run for Eggs and Cheese and finally – The Gossip Girls this year.  I teamed up with Mandy and nyflygirl as we looked to have a good time.  And that we did!

We met up at 8:30am on the UES to head to Brooklyn.  All of us were excited for the race and the chance to leave the confines of Central Park. On the train the order was decided: Mandy, myself, nyflygirl to anchor.  The weather held up which made it much more pleasing.

So the race?  Oy, HARD.  I always forget how long 3.3 miles can feel in Prospect Park.  That mile 2 is a killer – not so much the monstrosity of the hills but the way it just continues.  I didn’t wear a watch so I have no splits but I ran til it hurt.  So I suppose that’s good?

After the race, I headed with Mandy to a neighborhood in Brooklyn to go to some open houses.  Let’s just say I loved the neighborhood I went to;)  The prospect of becoming a first time home owner?  Exciting, yet frightening.  TBD.
