North changed to (Far) East

by Jenny on January 18, 2012

Now that I have kept all of you in suspense long enough, things are pretty much finalized, and Brian and I have broken the news to those that we wanted to be able to talk to in person first, it’s time to finally bring my LoveEatRunners up to speed!

As many of you know from reading LoveEatRun, Brian plays professional baseball for a living. Last year he played with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the AAA associate of the Philadelphia Phillies, and we were 100% expecting to be back in Allentown again this season.

Well, my friends, there has been a slight change of plans. Brian won’t be packing up and moving North again for the baseball season. Instead, he will be packing up and heading West for a pit stop in Arizona before heading far East.

How far East?
