Ok, I’ll admit I’m starting to feel a little burned-out. I’ve been pushing myself through every workout for the past 6 months with the thoughts of my next race. After the Georgia Half Marathon in a couple weeks, I’m going to unplug. I won't care about how fast I’m going, what my heart rate is, if I only reached 5.5 miles instead of 6 for the day.
Remember when running used to be simple?
I’ll slip on my shoes and run because I feel like it....stop when I don’t feel like it anymore.....be one with nature. Kumbaya.
Next month, the Mr. and I are going to do something we haven’t done in over 2 years. Go on a vacation by ourselves! Our plan? Show up at the airport with backpacks and passports, then pick a flight off the departure board. Prague, Amsterdam, and Barcelona are tops on our list. We’ll be on whatever flight is leaving first with first class seats available :) This has been my dream ever since Mr.Blondie started working for the airlines.
April will be my month to recharge. Then it’s back to business. This week I registered for the San Diego Rock and Roll Half in June.
This is another thing I haven’t done in a few years….a destination race. Oh how I’ve missed doing these. Our parents will be watching Emily for this one too. Wine tasting in Temecula, staying out late with friends, and oh yeah, a race thrown in there to kick it all off.
One of our friends is running his very first marathon, so I'll be there to help pace him towards the end of his race as well. Ooh, I can't wait.
Anyone else working on vacation plans? Can you recommend some destinations and travel guides we should be looking at?
