Today I am feeling really philosophical so please bear with me.
Today is March 1st and here in NC we are expecting the temp to be between 75 -80 degrees. Love it. I will take humidity over snow every day of the week. The reason I bring up the temp is because I really love calling NC home.
Here I can participate in a sponsored sporting event almost every weekend. I could do a 5k, a triathlon, a century, a mud run, participate in a cross fit event or just walk outside and go for a run. There are groups of like minded individuals that I can join for every sport.
Everything within a couple of miles of my front door. While every street doesn't have sidewalks and some drivers aren't the most considerate, for the most part I can run different routes, places every single day.
Before I started running and cycling, I never really paid attention to bumper stickers. But now I look at all the 140.6, 70.3, 26.2 and 13.1 stickers. I can not go anyplace with see them. I love it. It means that I am surrounded by people who think like I do. Who want to improve themselves through various challenges.
It is awesome living here.
