With all of the business that comes with a cross country move and starting a new job, the end of 2014 didn’t lend itself to much time for running. I got to the Bay Area in mid September to start my new job and look for a a house for us. Michelle and I had done a bunch of house-hunting online before the move, but nothing beats being there to get a feel for the different communities and neighborhoods. We closed on a house in Pleasanton in the East Bay in November. Michelle and the boys stayed in Ohio to allow the kids to finish their semester in school, so they joined me (at long last!) in California just before Christmas. Together again!
