So it’s final. I will be leaving on 01/01/09 for Seattle, Washington USA. While everybody is eagerly awaiting the coming of the new year, I will be busy making final checks on my luggage ensuring that I have packed everything I needed.
You might be asking why I am leaving. Being in an IT company, our clients are from abroad and would sometimes require you to work “onshore”. My new client is based in Seattle and has requested me to work there until October 2009 (Yes, that long! My first assignment was just 4 months). Initially they planned me to be there before Christmas but because of some paperworks and clearances my working start date was moved to January 5. There were also no more flights for the weekend of Jan 2, 3 and 4 which left me no choice but to book the New Year flight.
For the meantime, I will enjoy my last race at UP ICTUS, do a practice run in Antipolo and attend the remaining sessions of the Nike Clinic.
PS. Since I am already in the US, I will be doing my first full marathon probably in LA Marathon. Winter training trips would very much be appreciated. 🙂
