After a good night’s rest last night, I feel great today. I am back to my energetic..cheery and so friendly self! 😉
I do feel rested and better today. That’s good since I have to run tonight. The weather is great and maybe a little too warm for me since I am a cold weather runner but I’ll try to pound out a short 3 miles tonight.
And, I do have that new Garmin and I need to get to know it better.
I am now starting to re-think my marathon training plan. It’s just like me to pick one and take the time to schedule it all out until Oct 19th and then read one that I like better! I am planning on training to Hal Higdon First Time Marathon program.
But as I’ve looked over the Garmin training plans, I may like them better. I dunno….I’m wishy washy.
There are 2 places in this country that I’d rather vacation at than maybe anywhere in the world: Santa Cruz/Bay Area in CA and Taos, NM!
Work has been so stressful and I have tons of vacation time so my mind has been in California all day. I was even looking at Santa Cruz pictures earlier….I couldn’t resist posting some of them.
Me before the Eddie Money concert on the Beach
Kevin and I usually go on a 2 week vacation to the Bay Area, particularly Santa Cruz, Carmel, Monterey…but we do not plan to do that this year. 😦 A few things are making us hold off on a vacation this year
(1) I hate leaving Peyton and Eli for so long..they become very stressed in the “Bed and Biscuit” for 2 weeks.
(2) I paid $20,000 for my surgery in Dec…I know…OUCH!
(3) Marathon Training will be hard to do while laying on the beach and getting wasted for 2 weeks!
(4) And San Francisco Clam Chowder in a Sourdough bread bowl (and all the delicious seafood) can sure add a few pounds to the waistline.
I do usually run everyday on the beach or another area but that’s usually for pleasure not training.
I loved this beach just north of Santa Cruz
But I can’t get my mind off how much I want to be in SC. One day, Kevin and I will be living there. Kevin is from that area and I am a wannabe from that area! 🙂
My Tattoo Guy in Santa Cruz, Tim Buonagurio at “Good Omen Tattoo”
Tim has done every one of my 3 tattoos. He will do my next one. I feel like he is a friend and a he is a fine character! 🙂
The sea lions are my favorite part of SC
We always stay at the same place with beach front view. We were awakened every morning by waves crashing and sea lions barking. You can even see the sea lions from our room.
I drank like a fish and ate like a queen!
My daily morning run ended up here every morning
We’ve been coming here for 5 years now for 2 weeks…how can I pass this year?
