Since I’m officially moved to North Carolina (as of yesterday), I thought I would list the things that I’m going to miss about good ol’ Maryland.
1. My family.
Is it normal for a 28-year-old to have a ‘I miss my Mommy’ moment a few hours after driving away from your parents house?! Having my parents around has been awesome. My Mom is the coolest person to be around and my favorite wine drinking buddy, and my Dad has been one of my favorite running buddies since forever. It’s going to be really hard to have them so far away, but any time they want to move to North Carolina that would be great ;)
2. The running group.
This awesome group of people has pushed me to be my best in the running realm. And they’re also just really fun to be around. We’re already discussing the possible races we can run together in North Carolina (ahem::Tarheel 10 Miler…which is so much more fun than Boston. Maybe? Just kidding…I’ll be searching for another race that doesn’t conflict :) ).
3. CRABS (and good seafood). No one does crabs (and crab cakes, crab soup, etc) the way Maryland does. I tried to get my fill before I left but it’s never enough.
4. This girl (and her kiddos).
Megan has been my best friend for over 10 years (I don’t really know why she’s put up with me for that long…but she has). Although we’ve both been crazy busy with school (me) and raising some awesome kids (her) she’s been an awesome running buddy and has let me vent to her about various things. Any time she wants to come down and visit and/or move to North Carolina I would totally be alright with that ;)
I’m sure more things will come to mind as the weeks go on, but this is what I was thinking of in the days leading up to my move. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m definitely excited to be down in North Carolina chasing my dream of becoming a Physical Therapist at my favorite University :)
Today Andrew and I are going to a farmer’s market down the street from our apartment, so I’ll let you know how that goes!
