I'll also miss another co-worker, Anita. She is the most sweetest person I know. Always asks how about my son and even decorated my desk for me after I ran my first marathon.
It should be an interesting week. My replacement will be starting on Monday so I will slowly be handing over all my duties to her. It does make me feel good knowing that everyone at work feels the same way I do... well at least I think they do cause they keep saying they are going to miss me, maybe they'll have a party after I leave cause I'm no longer there haha.
I still have about a month between leaving my job and when I will actually be moving to Idaho. And then i'll have another round of goodbye's with all my friends, well more like family too me now. But that post will have to wait till that time is closer.
It's funny, I remember when I first moved to Tacoma in 2008 I was sad I left Idaho and couldn't wait to be back, now I'm sad I'm leaving WA. This is where my running and racing adventures started. But I'm happy to continue them in Idaho. I love Idaho. It's my home and where all my family is and my bestie is there and my sister who wants to run her first half marathon with me this year. I've even inspired a friend from high school to run her first half marathon this year.
I definitely will be running on my free time which will start next Friday! Enjoying every minute I can of beautiful WA. I guess you could say I got used to the rainy weather haha. I plan to run the same route I did my first 10 mile run, that was one of my most memorable runs.That and my first 16 mile run where as I was running I told my self "You're freakin crazy Cynthia, why would you want to run a marathon, what's wrong with you?" And then I went shopping a few hours after with my friend Tiffany haha. And I WILL run all the way up 30th street hill before I leave, even if I'm huffing and puffing and my quads are on fire. And hopefully the weather will get a little better before I leave so I can run over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge again. Or maybe i'll just convince Tiffany to run over it with me on the way to her soccer game again so it can start pouring down rain as we get to the soccer complex in Gig Harbor... that's what happened the first time we ever ran over it last summer haha.
I know I'll be back to WA to run more races. It's only an 8 hr drive or a 1 hr and 20 min flight away!
Here are a few of my fav running photos!
