Here I Come Alabama....A New Chapter Begins...

Alabama will never be the same again! :) I'm about 90% packed and will be leaving tomorrow morning. I'm excited about my first week but I will also miss my girls and look forward to getting back home on Friday. I only have a few things left to do around the house and one more load of wash and I'm ready to go.

My fitness is going to kick back into action after a long hiatus. This upcoming week will bring some short runs and throwing some weights around. I have free access to a fitness center so no excuses! I will record my workouts and nutrition here like I did before. I'm looking forward to getting back in shape and FINALLY training towards that goal of 26.2 miles in Richmond.

So, a new chapter begins in my life with many challenges ahead. I will miss my wife and my daughter alot through each week but will cherish every second I have with them on the short weekends. Summer is coming so they will be able to come to Hunstville and hang out there often, should be fun. I guess I would call this new chapter bittersweet! The new job will have its own set of challenges as well as traveling back and forth but I'm ready for them all, I'm ready because I know this is where God wants me to be and I know I can lean on him to help me get through this time.

I'm ready....bring it on!
