Thoughts on biking, beers, food, running and life as a transplant to Washington, D.C.
I never thought I would end up living outside of New England until late fall 2010. My then girlfriend (now fiance) accepted a great job in Maryland. Until then we had talked about moving, but it had never sunk into reality. I liked where I lived, my neighborhood, my job and co-workers. Things felt good.
Now I am living in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Trying to adapt to the “new normal”. My commute kinda stinks (unsafe route for bikes and no showers), the job is similar but different, I am trying to make friends – but the fundamentals are the same… bikes, beer, food, dirt (aka my job).
porta-john will be an outlet for me to express my experiences in D.C., as I try to find things that will make it feel so much more like home. Hopefully much of that will be on my bike. I
like love the feeling I get on my bike – you see so many interesting things you wouldn’t in a car, it clears you head, and you feel refreshed and healthy. Maybe I’ll even get to know some D.C. people via the blog.
