Running, Moving, Working – Not Necessarily In That Order

Life has been moving roughly a million miles an hour and I knew it had been a while since I’d written a blog post, but I had no idea it had been 9 months!  Wow!

To get things up to current, after 5 years of life in New York City, Jay and I decided to make a move up to Boston.  It wasn’t particularly planned and we basically landed here by happenstance, but it seems as though it was the right decision.

In late August, I saw a job posting at a company in Boston where I had a connection.  I reached out casually about it, and before I knew it, I was completing a phone interview and an in person was being discussed.  We were heading to the Cape for vacation the following week, so I agreed to interview then since we’d be a short drive to Boston.  I thought the interview went well, but I figured that it was more practice than anything since I didn’t imagine they want to relocate anyone for the job.  Well, low and behold, the recruiter called later in the week and invited me back for a second interview.   I was shocked and still didn’t think they’d actually hire me.  The second interview happened and a few days after that I got a call from the CFO offering me the job.  It was a great opportunity for me so I took it.  We fully relocated to Boston about a month later.

The move has been a relatively big change for us.  We left a lot of friends and our beloved Nike NYC running community.  Luckily, there’s a Nike Run Club here too and Jay actually got a job with them that he loves.  So the move has meant new and better jobs for each of us and new friends, so we’re happy.  So that’s why I haven’t touched this blog in so long.  Now we’re settled in though, so I’ll be back at it.  More to come!
