Leaving on a Jet Plane...

But I do know when I'll be back again!

Tomorrow morning at this time I'll be in the sky somewhere between DC and Minneapolis. I'm so excited for vacation and to not be at work or have to think about work for several weeks. The only plan I have for when I'm gone is to run at least 3 days a week to keep up my stamina and endurance so when I start my official training for the half-marathon in mid-August I'm not completely dying. As I've mentioned before, there's going to be lots of people there so going for a run will be a nice way to get away from everyone and have some alone time. The cabin does have internet so I'll still be reading your blogs (as much as possible...if it comes down to water skiing or reading blogs, I'm sorry but I'll be picking the water skiing) but I'm not going to put any pressure on myself to try and comment while I'm gone.

I just finished reading "Wideacre" by Phillippa Gregory and it is such a good book!! It's the first book in a trilogy so I, of course, bought the other two to read in Canada. I'm trying to decide if I think that will be enough books or if I should pack more. I think I'll just go with those two and if I finish them, I can always buy another book or two in town to make it through the rest of vacation.

I'll "see" you lovely ladies in about 3 1/2 weeks!!! Here's a picture from last year's Canada vacation...it's me, Stephen, and his dad's dog Grace out on the dock.
