OK, it's not all roses. Sometimes, most times it is scary being in this big new city, as there are more crazies than I'm used to. And people are mostly less helpful than I'm used to. But, this experience is going to make me stronger. I just didn't want to be ALL rosy, and everything is OK. It's really challenging. But the good news is, a Friend from Sydney contacted me and offered dinner, I fou d a great free tour guide company. I found some great shops that do group runs, if I am able to run again soon. And...this new place I am at doesn't require me to walk up and down 4 flights of stairs to my room. I am planning a cycle on a hire bike, and a run through central park. And beers with the Jack Rabbit run group this afternoon, regardless of whether I can run or not. If it doesn't kill me, it will make me stronger!
And the sun is out. I miss my kids though, Skype with a 4 y.o is just mucking around, not talking. Is it wrong to say I'm looking forward to Portland, where i will know people? YES, bad attitude. Enjoy the moment Mel. Revel in the challenge. This is very similar to the end of a marathon. Hard work, intense, challenging, but KEEP up the good attitude, despite wanting to give in.
OK, I'm done, thanks for listening. Just thought I would be honest and not pretend it is all easy and fun.
