Okay. I think I am ready to try this again.

A couple of hours ago, I typed the awesomeEST post and it got erased. So if this one sucks, blame someone else, but don't blame me.

I have been a BAAAD bad runner. Bad runner no chocolate. And maybe no more running. I don't know what it was, but I selfishly ran 20ish miles while on vacation and and also did a spin workout. Thinking back, it was probably preconceived considering I packed FOUR running outfits. Either way, we stayed just across the street from the beach in Florida. I honestly have no idea how I could not run under those circumstances. When your vacation starts out looking like this:
And you're addicted to running? No brain-er. Literally. Dumb. Brainless. Oh well.

I remember the past week of beach running and treadmill running overlooking the ocean with fond memories. With a week filled of relaxation and rest, I found all I wanted to do was run. So...I guess I am back at square one with the injury. I really don't regret it.

A few highlights:
-I met a spider monkey in Honduras. It was love at first sight. Then he bit me. We broke up.
-I parked my lawn chair next to the beach and a dolphin aquatic center in Mexico. I soaked up sun and dolphin acrobatics all day long. Darn.
-The same day, we met a baby tiger. Yeah. A baby tiger. Cutest thing ever.
-My most wonderful husband surprised me with a beautiful turquoise jewelry set as a honeymoon present. Speechless.
One thing I really realized while we were away-- we have a pretty great life. I am sure there are many people who would love to run looking at the view I do every day when I run. We are fortunate enough to share a cabin with Ty's family in the beautiful San Juan mountains. Honestly, life is good. I enjoyed my vacation, but I am so pleased to be home. Oh this is happy? Hello lover.

Happy Valentine's Day. xoxo


  1. Always love vacation (and I always run too :)) but Dorothy said it right when she said, "There's no place like home." I think it was Dorothy. :)

    1. It was Dorothy!! Red slippers were clicking for me!! :)

  2. With beautiful scenery like that I'd get lost running!
