The past two weeks were all about prepping our house and unfortunately I was sick for 9 days straight (and ran 5 miles total!) On Monday the photographer came to take photos for the listing - which marked a big milestone for us. Afterwards, we went to trivia with our old group and while we didn't win, it reminded me why we used to go every week!
On Tuesday we ran a ton of errands and even though I was still a little sick, I got in a solid 3 miles.

Luckily, my new shoes arrived Thursday so I took them out for a 4 miler. It was a solid progression: 9:18, 8:50, 8:41, 8:14. I think Thursday was my laziest house day of the week -- and much needed!
Our house was listed Thursday at midnight, so I woke up Friday to our first showing request. We hit the road for IKEA to get a replacement faucet for the bathroom and during our drive to Cincinnati I received at least 10 requests for showings between Friday and Sunday. When we got back to Columbus we got a call from our realtor. We had our first offer! The offer came with a tight deadline (because 7 other people were drafting offers and they wanted us to accept theirs first). It was a fantastic offer including a 30 day closing and no repairs! We have an inspection this week, then we'll move forward. It's not 100% final, but barring any complications the house sold in less than a day!

We still had a few showings on Saturday (just in case), so Alex and I had to stay out of the house for most of the day. Luckily the showings after 4pm were canceled when our agent marked the house as "in contract," so we were able to relax a bit before going to a party at our neighbor's house. Saturday was a long and exhausting - but fun - day! It's funny how much we wanted to go home and relax!

I woke to a migraine Sunday (I blame the constantly shifting weather), but managed to get out to breakfast with our neighbors while Alex did a full day of tree work. Post-breakfast I felt pretty icky so I hung out in bed most of the day, finally going outside around 4pm for a short run. I'm so glad I did. It was a beautiful, sunny day. Only 44º, but that's perfect running weather for me! Post-run I made dinner, did a bit of packing/organizing, and watched Twister in memory of Bill Paxton.
