1. I celebrated an anniversary recently. As of the end of September, I have lived in England for five years. I’ve lived in Nerdtown longer than any other single place* in my entire adult life. Freaky.
*In no particular order, I’ve also lived in DC, Edinburgh, NYC, Middle-of-Nowhere NH, and two Boston suburbs.
2. For the first time in four weeks I ran last night. It was awesome. And cold. And kinda dark which made it a bit scary on the towpath at times. But I ran and it was great. My reason for running was guilt. I ate four cupcakes yesterday (DON’T JUDGE ME!). Running just over 5k burned off the calories of only one of them (FUCK OFF!).
3. To prevent further encouragement of my blogging Tourette’s, I will now show you pretty pictures. These are from the middle 3k of my 5k route. The beginning and end of my route are in my immediate neighborhood which is less pretty. Enjoy.
