I woke up this morning to drizzling rain, which was rather disappointing because Iâ€™m doing a 12-miler later this morning. Donâ€™t get me wrong â€“ I love to run in the rain when Iâ€™ve got the right gear â€“ but 12 soggy miles doesnâ€™t sound super appealing.
Hopefully, it will lighten up even more because itâ€™s do or die time. I canâ€™t do a long run Friday, Saturday, or Sunday morning and Iâ€™ve actually got this AM wide open. Itâ€™s now or never!
Whole wheat pancakes with a banana, almonds, and syrup. I run on pancakes.
Iâ€™m pretty sure Iâ€™ve blogged about this before, but letâ€™s play the TRAVEL GAME. The Travel Game is when we all discuss where weâ€™ve traveled and where we want to go. Last night I had a dream about backpacking through Europe, which got me thinking about my favorite subjectâ€¦
I LOVE to travel. Travel is very important to me (I realize itâ€™s not as important to other people, which is totally fine â€“ different strokes). When I talk about how Iâ€™m trying to become â€˜financially responsible,â€™ I mean I want to get to the point where I can do grown-up things like buy a home and have bebes and STILL travel. When we save, we save towards several big goals, including travel. Honestly, I donâ€™t think my life would feel as complete with travel â€“ or at least the promise of travel!
Did you catch my vacation announcement? I just slipped it in this weekend. 🙂
Here are the places Iâ€™ve traveled (outside of the USA):
- Mexico (twice)
- Spain (twice)
- England (twice)
- Czech Republic
Here are some places that Iâ€™d love to go to:
- Australia / New Zealand
- Turks and Cacaos
- Brazil (for the World Cup)
Out of every place Iâ€™ve visited, I probably enjoyed England the most, but I might be biased because the Husband is English. Hereâ€™s us in England in 2006 â€“ we look like babies! (we also went back to England last winter).
Is travel a priority for you? Play the Travel Game in the comments section â€“ tell me everywhere youâ€™ve been outside of your home country and where you want to go!
