Good morning!!! Guess what I’ve been up to this week? Preparing for a little something special.
I’m headed to Boulder, Colorado baby!!!! This will be the farthest west I have ever traveled in the States. In fact, I think the most west I have gone before this in the States was like Alabama. And I live in Georgia. Sad.
I have actually visited more foreign countries than U.S. states.
I spent a lot of my childhood taking cruises all around the Caribbean. I wish I had some old throwback pictures of those days for you. They’re awesomely hilarious. Think huge bangs, posing with an iguana, and Limited Too outfit. You get the mental picture.
Peter and I hope to take another cruise late this year or early next with some friends. I’m already excited just thinking about it. I wonder if I can convince them all to do a theme night a la Julie??
Then, in my young adulthood, I spent about two months traveling all around Europe.
and I did not just run 20 miles…although how GOOD would that taste after a long run???
Then I got engaged…married…popped out two kiddos…got more reasonable and realized I can’t spend ALL my money on epic vacations in one fell swoop again…
So, needless to say, I’ve been fairly stoked at the travel I’ve been able to do the past couple of years to places here in the good ole U.S. of A. – like Philadelphia (three times), Indianapolis (hi Mandy!), Baltimore, and our usual beach trips.
Now, I get to go to Colorado and Ohio in just the next few weeks – for the Blend Retreat and then for my first marathon. I’m not going to lie. I love travel revolving around blog friends and running.
at the Healthy Living Summit last August with my roomies
I even have a top ten list of cities I want to visit.
#1 – Chicago!!! <—which I will be visiting later this year to run marathon #2 and hang out with this fabulous lady
Haha! You love coming to visit my blog and seeing a huge picture of your face, don’t you, Chelsey?
#2 – San Francisco (with a drive up the coast to some wine country)
#3 – New York (yea, I’ve never been)
#4 – Hawaii (come on, it’s Hawaii!)
#5 – Miami
#6 – Las Vegas (for the shows and the food…yea)
#7 – San Diego
#8 – Grand Canyon
#9 – somewhere pretty and cool to hike in Oregon or Utah…or somewhere
#10 – Washington D.C. (well, I’ve actually been here but I was in 5th grade on a school trip)
A few of those places have pretty awesome races. Just saying. And warning Peter. Although if wine or hiking or late nights Vegas style are involved, I’m not interested.
Well, it’s about time for me to hit the road. As in, go cram in my long run for the week before grabbing as many hugs and kisses as possible from my two little ones before flying my way to a weekend with lots of fabulous friends. I can’t wait! I’ll be back to regale you all with the adventures on Monday. Have a great weekend!
What is your favorite place you have traveled? Where do you REALLY want to visit? – Barcelona is my #1 place I have been. Outside of the U.S. places I have listed above, I would LOVE to go to Australia.
