Happy National Running Day!
Didn’t know? Yeah, me neither. Well, I found out like, yesterday.
To celebrate, I ran to work. I worked for a few hours, then ran back home to shower/get my laptop/eat. Then took the bus back to campus. I love that I only live 2 miles away.
I run to work every once in a while, but my primary mode of transportation to work is the bus. The bus system in Boulder is phenomenal: always on time, runs frequently, clean and safe.
Sometimes I wonder what the whole “commuting-to-work” thing will be like
if when I get my PhD and enter the real world (one day…one day…). I give mad props to the folks who have to commute more than the 15 minutes it takes me to get to work. Anything longer sounds awful. I’m so spoiled here.
Speaking of spoiled, I work with a handful of culinarily-gifted labmates. It feels like every week a labmate (or spouse) bakes cupcakes or truffles or pie . Just today, one of my labmates brought in oreo cupcakes… with an oreo on the bottom of the cupcake. Changed my LIFE. Talk about delicious.
Probably yet another reason why I should run to work more than sitting on my butt on the bus. Dang labmates, trying to fatten us all up :P
How do you get to work/what’s your commute like?
What’s the public transportation system like where you live?
