There’s nothing I enjoy more than exploring the world with my family and friends. Last month, we were in the Bahamas for a fun and relaxing trip with family. This weekend the Hubby is headed West for an adult hockey tournament with Goalielocks, while the Mayor will head to Epcot with school. Jake will be working, which means I’ll have an entire Saturday to myself! (Say what!?!?!) If I didn’t have all these blisters on my feet from starting to run again, I’d probably go get a long over due pedicure. I’m just a little concerned about picking up an infection with the blisters, so I’ll probably go shoe shopping instead.
Before I get to my super Saturday, I have a 5K on Thursday night. It’s all about the preparation with these races, which means I’m facing an uphill battle. I’ve trained pretty steadily for the past two weeks, but it isn’t going to be sufficient to yield favorable results. My goal is to get back under 30 minutes, but I don’t think this will be that race. Nevertheless, it feels great to be running again. To be clear, it feels good after I’m done running not while I’m running.
Next weekend I’m headed to the islands for a well deserved momcation. I can’t wait to be on a beautiful island with incredible women and incredible beaches. Its been a hell of a first quarter and this is the perfect way to recharge my battery for the second quarter. Honestly, I cannot wait to disconnect for a few days while in the company of great people. Plus, you cannot beat the beaches in Turks and Caicos!
One of my goals has always been to travel more and see different places. The trips don’t have to be long, but just enough to get away for a bit and explore a new city. Consequently, I’ve been thinking that for the boys’ birthdays, it would be better to take them on a weekend getaway than buy them something. I love the idea of shared experiences over material goods. I’ll let you know how that goes. Lastly, Goalielocks hit the ice for the first time in earnest since his injury almost two months ago!
