I think I've finally recovered from Kennypalooza 2k8. It's Monday, I'm back at the office after having gone to the gym to wail on my pecs, quads, and abs, and now I'm ready for a snickers bar and a nap. That's the kind of backwards I am - workout and then snackout to negate most of what I think I've done in the gym. I think my one-pack abs are proof of that.
A few weeks ago I thought I had all the time in the world to get ready to move and speculated that I might be getting really stressed out and pissy once it got closer and closer to the move date. That's actually the exact opposite of what's been happening. The house is eiter on the market or will be later today, the guys threw me a great going away party this past Friday (the aforementioned Kennypalooza), I'm no longer hungover from kennypalooza, and I'm kind of in a better place each day.
I'm looking forward to camping my way to Charleston starting next Friday, the 10th, by stopping off in Middle TN at Montgomery Bell State Park for a night of camping and 2 days of trail riding/running. Then me and the gang are giong to head to Nashville for a day of Yazoo brewery and on Sunday I'll head to the Smokies for another night or two of camping and mtbing/trail running.
I had originally planned on getting to Charleston on Sunday, October 12th, but am thinking now I won't be in any rush to get there until the 14th or 15th. I'd like to stop in the Blue Ridge mountains for another night of camping and running. It's almost like a transition vacation for me. A purge, and move, and a fresh way to start each day - from a tent. I set one of my tents up in the back yard last week to air it out and make sure I had everything I needed and you know what? I do. I am like an 8 year old all over again, I've spent 4 of the last 6 nights sleeping in tent. Thankfully the weather has cooperated with mid-60's degree temps for the past week and a half.
