I’m trying to run a race in every state, but I keep getting distracted. Instead of running I can be found eating muffalettas in New Orleans, keeping score at minor league baseball games, drinking in Savannah, listening to jazz in Kansas City, riding horses in Inner Mongolia, checking out restaurant menus in Boston’s North End, reading great books, hiking in New Mexico, writing for hours at a time in various Starbucks, and playing blackjack in Las Vegas.

After teaching middle schoolers in Las Vegas and elementary students in China, I decided to wander around for a bit. In the middle of the winter I decided that I may as well move to Denver to teach high school. I think I need to buy some skies.

    Wow–we’re almost the same person. I live in between Philly and NYC and after June 20th (one month from today) I’ll ALSO be ‘who knows what’! And I can’t wait!

    Though I am jealous of your great friends to travel with. I don’t have that. Consider yourself very lucky!!!

    Edit–there should have been a ‘though’ before ‘I live…’ as clearly we are from different parts of the country.

  3. Hey Tracy – Glad to know I’m not the only one quitting an awesome job to wander around for awhile! I’ll be headed up to New England this fall, I think. As soon as I get around to creating a blogroll (on my to-do list for two weeks now…) I’ll link your sites – they’re full of good stuff!

      Gee–it took me long enough to find this reply. Sorry! Anyway–where in New England? We will be driving up the Maine coast into Maritime Canada in July/August. I wonder if our paths will cross???

      1. I’ll hopefully be in New Hampshire in the fall. I’ve wanted to see the leaves for years, but have always been teaching. Not a problem this year! I hope you’re having fun in Maine and Nova Scotia. I’m in 110 degree Tucson now – ugh. Good decision to skip the southwest this summer.

        1. What a wonderful time of the year to see New England! I hope you have a fantastic trip!

          Funny the things you don’t realize you are giving up becoming a teacher–like fall leaves! And low airfare, which is what I’m mostly looking forward to! I found a NYC to London fare for $380 this past April, and of course I couldn’t go. But like you, it won’t be a problem for me next school year!!!

          Hope you are keeping cool.

    Always good to read about a fellow runner and traveler. Join me for a jog in San Francisco if you’re ever on the west coast

    Hi Jenna,

    I read a post that you are moving to Golden. I’m heading that way next week for a half marathon. Any suggestions where to stay in Golden or near Arvada? Looking for something clean, safe location, and affordable.


    1. I haven’t stayed anywhere here yet, but the Golden Hotel is really nice and centrally located…a bit on the pricey side though. Anywhere in the Golden/Arvada area should be pretty safe. Good luck on the 1/2 – Hopefully I’ll be running it next year.

    I’m a teacher from Iowa that moved to Las Vegas this school year and I’m wanting to move to Denver to teach next year. We would be friends.lol

    1. Now I’m in Seattle! Move here next (once you want to make more money, anyways!)
