Total Distance

Sunday - moved our stuff into the moving van, then back out of the moving van - and unpacked in our new apartment.  Best feeling in the world to have 4 walls of my own again.

Monday - went for a bike ride with MR.  So many trails to ride around here it's awesome.

Tuesday - 3.26 miles.  This apartment complex seems to be on top of a hill.  No matter which way I go, I have to finish climbing uphill.  I hate uphill.  But I got to go to a RS b-day party with CinC and that was totally awesome.  

Thursday - 5 ish miles on the treadmill.  

Friday - 6 miles exploring a different path that ended up connecting to the bike trail from Monday.  

Saturday - 9.7 miles on the bike with MR.  Took a trail out to the dam.  So many people out on bikes and running.  It's great to see an active community like this.

You moved AGAIN? I back-read your blogs and realized you moved to Denver 3 weeks ago. Are you in Denver area now?

Glad you found some biking trails. Miss you!

CinC told me about the RS party. We're WWF buddies :)

Smooth- yes, we moved - again. We have at least one more move in our future around the end of May. But it will be somewhere near Denver- when we move into a home. Then I never want to move again. Ever.

Burt- world wildlife federation?
