We spent the last 24 hours in San Juan visiting the rainforest--packed with turistas, I got a migraine, and a city beach--delightfully uncrowded with plenty of sea life.
As I write this post, the weather has turned on "full summer" mode, and I am slightly dreading our Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon this Saturday. There is an actual wine stop at the halfway point which I will not partake of. Like my friend Kerrie says, "Running + heat + wine= no bueno. I am so angry at the race organizer who is charging folks an extra $15 to pick up packet on race day morning. If you pick up the packet at a local running shop on Thursday, it's an extra $10! It's all a ploy to get you to pick it up "for free" at the expo on Friday to ensure that the vendors get plenty of traffic. I will be complaining when I pick up my packet for free and buy a new pair of shorts that I need like another hole in my head.
Stay tuned for our Memorial Day highlight reel from our trip to Charlottesville last weekend.
