Summer of 2014 was a break through in my running, I ran my first half marathon and ran another two weeks afterwards and then my body completely shut down due to lack of nutrition. I didn't run again until April 2nd, 2015. And on September 27th I ran my second marathon, only this time it was a race at the Adirondacks. The first one was a fun run after dropping Lauren off at LGA airport at 3:30am and decided to run back home. I also took on cycling for cross training!
Since then I've been hooked! Being outdoors; running, cycling, hiking, walking, and climbing (so far only indoors, but it will eventually lead to outdoor pursuits), is the most beautiful thing for me. Suddenly, office life stopped making sense, if it ever did. So I took on researching alternate life styles and while at the office one day I came across CabinPorn! I think that was the turning point for me, the idea of living in a cabin on a land I fully own became very tangible. The stories I read were all inspirational, and yes, I went through each post of each 159 pages. I strongly recommend this website, for a few weeks, this website was my 30 minutes of alternate reality from the misery that is called The Office!
While pursuing the CabinPorn site, I came a across some videos that accompanied the featured cabins. I always go back to these videos, they are beautifully curated and are true inspirations for what I will eventually do with my life. Here they are for my ease of access and yours, enjoy!
