I always get tired as vacation approaches. It's like my body knows it is going to get a rest and it loses its ability to push as hard as it normally pushes.
This time, it's been a long time since I've had a restful vacation. I've had plenty of fun adventures this year. We went to the Cabot Trail for a relay race. We went cycling through Québec for four days. We ran the Twin Cities ten-miler and we went to New York...twice.
I love adventures and you won't hear any complaints out of me.
But I must admit that I am looking forward to having two weeks off.
Between December 22nd and January 7th, I plan on a lot of family time and visits with friends. I plan on lots of runs and trips to the pool.
But I also plan of lots of time on the couch. And naps in the sunshine. And no alarm clocks set for 4:55am.
My life is full of fun, adventure and hard work. I live life on the edge of exhaustion and sometimes I cross the line and need to recuperate for a few days.
2pm on the 21st can't get here soon enough...
