Where in the World is...

My posting has been spotty at best this year, but I've never gone this long in between and there is good reason. I've pretty much been gone since November 2nd. Here's where I've been:
  • Nov 2-9: Vacation in London with friends
  • Nov 16-17: Drove my cat Otis to DC to live with my sister temporarily
  • Nov 18-27: Vacation in the Piedmont region of Italy with my boyfriend Mark
  • Nov 27-28: Short solo jaunt to Rome before heading back to London
  • Nov 29-Dec 8: Two different business trips to London
  • Dec 10-12: Back to DC to bring Otis home
  • Dec 16-18: Fun weekend in San Francisco with Mark
I can't tell you how many times I logged on and tried to post a little something but I either had no connection or was too busy and tired. The time zipped by so quickly and has left me in a horribly jet lagged haze. My body is beyond confused. But the personal parts of the travel were incredibly fun and I may someday post a few pics if I can catch up on life.

I have two suitcases and an overnight bag partially unpacked lying around my apartment, but it's time to pack up once again for a trip home for the holidays on Friday. I plan to sleep, eat and wear pajamas as much as possible all week. And maybe throw in a swim or jog here or there.

On that front, I'm ashamed to say I haven't swam a single stroke since Ironman Wisconsin. I just couldn't bear the thought of it and given how burned out I was last season I decided to just skip it for awhile. I was never a good swimmer anyway and it's not like I'll forget how. I haven't been able to run since the race with the exception of the Army 10 Miler on October 9. That was the last time I laced up my shoes and gave it a try. I've suffered from severe plantar fasciitis once again and now have achilles tendonitis issues to add to the mix. Just when I think it's improving I have a setback so I'm really being cautious. If all goes well the next several days I'll try a very easy, short jog. At least I can earn a few extra Christmas cookies.

Happy Holidays!


  1. WOW! You have been traveling! At least this is the time of year to travel and get away with it.

  2. Holy smokes girl... you've been busy! Screw training, I wish I was doing all the fun things that you've been doing!!!
