Well. It is now official. We are moving back to Alabama–my home state. I just accepted a job as an academic department head at Jacksonville State University. Jacksonville is about an hour from my parents and three-to-four hours closer to my wife’s parents in the Florida panhandle. This is a great family and professional opportunity for me. I have already registered for a 5K in Anniston (right next door to J-Ville) and the Anniston Runners Club looks amazingly active–so much so that I’ve already joined their club and registered for their signature event–the Woodstock 5K, which benefits Cerebral Palsy, run on August 2.
There are some nice hills in that area, which sits at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. So lots of opportunity for Hill repeats!
This explains my blog inactivity of late. We’ve been feverishly packing our house for the move. We sold our house in three hours and will close on it on the 14th. Movers arrive same day and we head to ‘Bama.
Pictures of my new home and the J-Ville area coming soon.
