The Journey – 217.7 Miles:
With less than 100 miles before crossing over into Nevada, the A2B Run turned off the Bagdad Highway and briefly onto America Mine Road. Then beginning a due north route, I continued the A2B Virtual Run up North Amboy Road. Today’s leg finished up just south of Amboy, California in the dry lake bed of Bristol Lake.
This morning’s run was trailblazer of sorts. I moved this past weekend to a new neighborhood. So with no predefined course, I just started running. Being only slightly familiar with this new part of town, I had planned to stick with main roads. However, my wanderlust challenged that thinking and won!
It was fun to discover new pathways and scenery. I enjoyed waving to and being greeted by new faces. I discovered some small shops, restaurants, and a park that I might not have caught by just driving.
After doing a couple of “wrong street” turnarounds, I finally made it back to my new and unpacked home.
Great first run in my new setting!
While observing the all of the landmarks in my neighborhood, I thought about my current living situation. I chose this move for practical / functional reasons. But also, I love the part of town where I now live. I expect to enjoy the environment very much.
My new apartment, however, not so much. Being a much older property, it does not have many of the amenities and comforts that I would normally prefer. For this and a few other reasons, I may not stay when the lease expires.
So my thoughts were all around what to do when the lease is up in a few short months. I envisioned where I want to be in terms of personal goals and all of the things that need to happen between now and then. From that, I determined that I am going to be quite busy for the next few months. I am excited about all of it!
As for the current living space, I am happy to make do for a while. Especially if it leads to bigger and better things!
