I'm Moving

Well I am both happy and sad that I am moving. I am happy that I am moving from my apt. to a Townhouse, but sad that my commute is actually gonna be shorter. My current commute is 5 miles to work, but my new commute is 0.9 miles to work. I am gonna miss my workout part of my commute, but the one good thing I am looking forward to with such a short commute, is reducing the weather restrictions of my bike commute. Since it should only take me less then 5 minutes to get to work, I have no excuse rain, downpour or whatever. A good plus is that it is a very flat route, which means .9 sprints home.

Well at least it sounds like you've got a nicer place to live in. It's an even stevens trade off, right?
