Living in Dayton

Listen to this!  Oh, I LOVE the Black Keys!

I have now been living in Dayton, Ohio for about a month.  It's been a big change but I'm loving it!  It is so wonderful to be near my family.  I'm finally back home!  The hardest part is being away from my brother who is in school at South Alabama.  The good news is, he is spending his spring break up here and I can't wait to see him!  So, I've been MIA for a while and I apologize.   It's been quite crazy with a new job and city.  I absolutely love exploring new places.  We've been to really neat places and delicious restaurants around here.  I'll have to go into more detail in another post.

I did get a gym membership and I really like it!  They have great treadmills (not that I like running inside) and lots of cross training classes like yoga, spinning, boot camp, zumba, and butts and guts.  I haven't tried them all yet but I'm sure they are great.  I'm dying to get outside and RUN!  It's been insanely cold here.  We finally got some relief this week with some 30-40 degree temperatures.  But sadly, I haven't been outside since my marathon in January.  I'm not sure where there are good places to run around where I live.  I know there are tons of mean looking dogs around my neighborhood and that terrifies me!  Anyway, I have continued to run at the gym and log about 30 miles a week.  I would like to do a half marathon in April or May but I haven't decided on one yet.  I also would like to do another full marathon maybe by June or July.  Do you have any suggestions?  I'm for sure running the Air Force Marathon with my uncle this fall.  I'm super excited!

Well, I'm going to try to find a movie on netflix and wind down for the night.  I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow!!  I promise I'll be back sooner next time!

Good night everyone,
Leah B.
