I'm a New Mexican! :)

Woahhhh!  Can it be?  I see that it has been OVER two months since I last wrote anything and that is just downright lame!  It is funny for me to look at the last post I wrote which touch upon a new assignment I had been given working on key accounts.  Oddly enough, this one is somewhat of the same announcement...I was promoted! :)  I am now working as a Territory Sales Manger over grocery stores all over the West Albuquerque area.  I am/was totally surprised/honored/flattered/nervous/excited in the matter of a 5 minute span when my boss offered me the position for lots of different reasons.  You know I believe I was itching to move in a way and God answered my prayers in a funny way I would say.  I think time and again I am reminded that God's plans for my life sometimes do not come close to the ones I have in mind.  Example A, I dont know anybody in the state of New Mexico (and I feel like I know a lot of people from a lot of different states).  I don't know that I have ever prayed for God to move me to NM, but I am totally surprised how different my predicition of what ABQ would be like was from the truth that I know thus far.  So far I have discovered that NM is way more like CO than AZ.  Did you know that Albuquerque is actually at a HIGHER elevation than Denver? Weird, right?!  So what does that mean or why do I care?  Well the last month of my half marathon training will involve RUNNING in that!  I think I was a little apprehensive about that idea earlier on, but to be honest, I think K and I are ready for the race!  I am actually really excited about it now!  I figure if I can train in the mountains, flat Phoenix should be cake right?  Hopefully so...I guess the biggest obstacle right off the bat here has been the realization I have no friends in this state yet.  I feel like it is completely different moving to a new city for a job than for school, because I remember not knowing a soul at ASU.  It was a bit different because I knew I would find friends through all of the clubs I could be involved in. I am still in the process of finding what ABQ has to offer, so if anyone is aware of anything to do LET ME KNOW! :)  I am in the process of unpacking still as I was moved into my nice 1 bedroom apartment a few days ago, so I am off!  I will update on the job, place, and area in the near future, so stay tuned!
