This past weekend brought us to the end of a chapter, as my wife and I ended our travels in the state of Oregon. To say it’s been a special time would be an understatement. I’ve felt the best I have mentally, physically and spiritually than I have in long time. Travel has done to me what it has done for many others - given a fresh perspective and a unique joy to life. Being in a different part of the country and interacting with a new environment is always a blessing, not to mention the beautiful sights. In Oregon, I think my wife and I optimized our weekends better than we ever have before, often getting to Sunday night wondering how we even did it all. Whether it was driving 7 hours to Olympic National Park in Washington or driving the entire Oregon Coast, we found a way to make the most of our time. For that I’m immensely grateful. Beyond that, we also enjoyed the most of our weeks even though we didn’t travel far. A lot of times, it just meant resting from the weekend and getting lots of ice cream. Work days for me were filled with zoom meetings, long runs, and catching up with people over the phone. I’m super thankful to have met some great people, becoming good friends with the people at my gym and even going on a few trail runs with an awesome guy from Belgium. So many of the little memories of the Eugene, Oregon community will always have a special place in my heart. I love the beauty of Oregon. I feel blessed that I had the chance to live here, and if you ever have the opportunity to visit - it’s worth it! Thank you to all of you who check in each Monday to see what random stories and occasionally inspiring topics I send out. By the time you read this, we will be driving across the entire state of Texas for our last travel placement… in Houston.
