When I was hired I signed a non solicit & a non-hire agreement to not accept a job offer with any client that I had done work for in the past year...

Aside for the convenience factor, it sounds like this job wouldn't really be offering much by way of career advancement. It could also become a blemish if a later employer discoveres that you alrady broke one non-solicit and non-hire agreement.

While I think you should probably consider finding a job closer to home, or in the alternative, moving closer to the job, I don't think you should break your word to the company you work for. Integrity in the workplace is important.
