On Wednesday, I snuck in a run at lunch. This week has again been a struggle to accomplish anything, and i just needed to move my feet for sanity's sake. The weather was unseasonably warm (40 and sunny!) and i had to take advantage of that perfect temperature where i can wear just a base layer of clothes, and not be hot or cold. Thats true joy right there, folks.
Anyway, i went to my favorite path by work, the North branch trail. But when i got there, i saw this:
All the snow (which was apparently significantly more than we got in the city!) Had melted, refrozen, melted again and formed a treacherous sheet of ice covered in slush. If i was smart i would have abandoned the mission. Based on this view, i had no idea how that path would be a few miles in. I hate not knowing whats coming. But ultimately, i decided to go for it.
In life, and in running, i choose the path that is less traveled. Also, paths that could potentially kill me. I do that a lot. Either way, it was a slow, but awesome run that brought me clarity. And an awesome core workout trying to stay upright.
All of this gobbledy-gook is basically just a lead up to the fact that i put in my two weeks notice at work. I am quitting my job so i can focus on the blog fulltime.
I'm just kidding. I am going to do the exact same thing i do now, just for a different company. It was a really hard decision, especially because by leaving my job, it will directly affect people that i work with and consider friends. But ultimately, i had to make the decision that was best for me. As a type A nut case, it terrifies me not knowing whats going to happen, and i will constantly question if i made the right decision. But the icy run on Wednesday looked scary, and ended up being something that was really good for me, so hopefully this scenario will play out the same way.
It's time for me to grow.
