i gave myself 2 mins between the two 5s because i was struggling so much. 4 and 3 were even harder, i almost gave up on 2 and then rallied for a good 1 (because 1 is ez). perhaps this was too much volume to just jump into, but regardless of the unraveling at the end, i did something 2day.

Race: Intown Ten 10k (6.214 Miles) 00:40:33, Place overall: 2

i've run this race one other time, in the spring of 2015, where i ran 40:57. i figured i was in similar shape today (which would be not-much-shape), but i ended up feeling pretty good and i'm happy with the effort. it also gives me a future goal to run a sub-40 10k again. lol jk

it was a beautiful, sunny day, as opposed to last time when it was mud raining and i was shamefully wearing a wet beanie. james managed to run this race four years in a row, and he has won it the last three. i gave him the title of intown ten GOAT, but he won't accept it despite owning four mini flags now. 

in other news, our apartment flooded due to what is likely a root blockage in the main sewer line (it's even nastier than it sounds hey-oh), so we are now partially living in james' office and/or kroger. we went home after the race to pick up a few things and check on the progress, and the plumber swam by the window in goggles and flippers and gave us a thumbs down. 

closing the door on all of this in 10 days

emory nature preserve loops. 

today is day 10 of no plumbing in our apartment. it was finally supposed to be fixed yesterday, but the tires on the excavator got dislodged in a giant pile of mud so they had to delay the repair again until at least monday. 

at this point i know it's a prank so i'm not even mad

off. 

today was the usual everything goes to **** at the final hour. as much as i love my subaru, its cargo capacity is deceiving (this is also true for jeeps, fyi). i grossly overestimated how much space i had to work with while simultaneously underestimating how much stuff we actually have. this is my 10th move in the last 13 years, so you would think i would have some strategies to do this really well. not yet. maybe i'll nail it on the next one. 

it was a long day of packing, unpacking, repacking, rearranging, getting to know the fedex employees, and frantically giving everything else away on nextdoor.

then i dipped our apartment in bleach to destroy any flood disaster remnants. 

i am so cranky right now lol lol <--- fake laugh

we made it to seattle around 3pm -- roughly 3000 miles of driving complete. it's a relief to have made it, as i was certain there would be at least one car explosion or smoore health & safety challenge. but everything survived, and it appears all the boxes we shipped made it safely as well.

i'm excited for something new here, although my true emotion at the moment is a bit panicky since we don't yet have a place to live and i haven't found a job. hopefully at least the housing situation will be figured out this weekend. i have zillow/craigslist scrolling blisters. 

it's been a fun week traveling across the country with james, seeing new sites/states, and visiting with family and friends. it's a weird zone to be in when your whole life is boxed up and life is just kind of dormant until the next phase gets going. james is excited about his new job, and hopefully i will find something interesting as well. in the meantime i'm just so happy to be back in the west and closer to the most important people in my life.

burke-gilman trail with james. 

i have a few applications in at the university of washington. should any of those work out, this would be an ideal commuting trail for both of us. this is dream scenario A -- running to and from work together. more likely i'll end up with dream scenario F which includes scrubbing the sewer lines at a KFC inside a gas-n-go 60 miles away from home.
