My husband and I decided to take a spur-of-the-moment trip this week. I have vacation days to burn up before the end of June and his trip to Oklahoma has been delayed, so we had a little time. Thus we decided to just pick a place and go away for a few days.
Our decided destination: San Diego
Once that decision was made, I contacted Lisa and asked if she wanted to get together for a run. She graciously mapped out a route around Mission Bay and along Mission Beach for us. She showed up at my hotel this morning and drove us to our start point. We had a great time chatting throughout the run and I got to experience a run with ocean views. It was cloudy and humid (especially for me as a desert dweller), but it was still beautiful because it’s so different from what I’m used to!
Just like Terri has said about meeting up with Chris, it just falls together when you meet face-to-face. No awkwardness, just getting together for a run with a pal!
I had the opportunity to meet Alissa at the expo for this year’s PF Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll in Phoenix and that was way too brief! Alissa has been a great friend electronically though, providing me with some great support and wisdom. I really appreciate her kindness and owe her a lot.
The web is such a cool thing in the way it allows us to connect with people all over the country. I love it! Plus having a person familiar with the city makes the run a lot more enjoyable than trying to figure things out when you’re visiting.
So if you’re one of my bloggin’ pals and I’m in your neck of the woods, I’m contacting you. Be ready because we’re going on a run!
