As I was heading out the door, I met my neighbor! She couldn’t get her key to work (it was a copy). I offered our wd-40 and it worked! First encounter and I was helpful. Winning at the kind Utah life!
Then I ran.
It’s getting easier, but I still feel heavy-legged. I assume my blood is nice and thick from all the extra red blood cells being created. But hooray! Faster!

Today was such a productive day for Utah Jess!
Brenna graciously let me use her car again.
AND I FOUND A PIECE OF FURNITURE THAT WORKS IN MY ROOM! It needs some tlc, but for now it is perfect.
More errands and then home to tidy and organize. I was on a roll. My closet is almost to my liking. I’d still like a small bookcase for the books we brought and two small nightstands and maybe even a little comfy chair for one corner of our bedroom.
Roommate took me for a short bike ride to show me more of the neighborhood. It was fun and confidence building. I’ll probably bike a little more tomorrow and maybe even practice my commute on Thursday or Friday.
And then I ran. 30 minutes tempo. I don’t really know what my tempo pace is right now. I just ran hard without letting my heart beat out of my chest. I stopped a couple of times for traffic lights and a high heart rate. But if we don’t count those breaks…
Lots of good things today. Still love living here! But it doesn’t feel real yet…
