|I could run along this beach. That would be alright.|
I'm trying to talk the husband into a destination marathon (Big Sur? London? Paris?) and while he's interested in the travel aspect, I think he thinks I'm a little bit crazy for wanting to throw a really long run into the middle of what could be just a nice vacation.
He has a point. Do I really want to run 26.2 and then wander around, on foot, sight-seeing for several days?? Maybe not.
Actually, my ideal vacation is to spend a week or so being sloth-like on a beach while food and drink are brought to me at regular intervals. I like to throw in a beachfront massage from time to time as well. I usually manage to hit the fitness center a couple mornings or run along the beach depending on the geography. That helps combat the vacation weight gain AND helps me feel like I'm not a complete loser for doing absolutely nothing for an entire week.
So really, all I need to do is find a race in a tropical setting. Start the week with the marathon, and then once I complete it, vacation per usual can commence. Maybe we'll extend the vacation to 10 days so we don't lose any precious beach time.
Ooooo, me likey.
Anyone have any ideas?
