I need a vacation and a race.
I don't live near my family, we spend most of our vacations traveling to them.
I love my family, I love to visit them, but it is not a real vacation.
I need the beach.
We need to plan ahead and book a trip so it actually happens. We are planning on taking our real vacation in October. October is four months away, which will give me four months to look forward to it.
What I am looking for:
My kids go to bed at 7:00 and I hate to be on lock down in a hotel room all night long. We need space.
I want a break I don't want to be in charge of everything, I feed people and clean up after them at home, I don't want to on vacation. I would love to have someone come in an cook one meal a day for us or something of that nature.
I don't want to be stuck in the middle of no where, I like to get out and see other people. My family is great but...
We have passports and are happy to use them.
Now all I need is a cost effective way to make this happen.
Now for the Race.
I need a race. I need something to train for.
If I am in training I have not excuses.
I need to schedule long runs, and I seem to always have something else to do or no child care, if I am in training I will make it a priority.
I want a full marathon, one that is fun and friendly and not too far away. One in late fall or early winter would be good.
