My Life of Travels and Adventures: 2010

Complete Book of Women's Running

22 December 2010

I received this book for Christmas and have started reading it early.  I really enjoy the book and it gives some good pointers and has some enspiring quotes.  Last night I went out for a short run.  (Yay for being in the first week of my new training program).  Anyways, during the two miles that I ran I thought back through the book and the tips on breathing and posture.  I would say that it helped.  I didn't realize that I tense my toes and hold my hands in a tight tight fist while running.  By focusing on relaxing and breathing correctly, I was able to make it through the run without being sore or winded.  I only walked 3 times during the first mile (for 3 - 0.05 blocks) and ran the next 1.03 miles back home. Score!  I am exicted to read more of the book (I am only like 1/4 through it) and get more running tips.

Oh, the places I have been... in 2010

To finish our past travels we head into 2010.  Some of the trips I have already wrote about and some where omitted previously. 

My sister and I went to Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a long weekend as part of her Christmas present.  We went on an airboat tour of the Everglades...

In October, I headed up to Hoboken for a weekend with my coworkers.  We went to Long Island and NYC.  You can read about the weekend and see pictures here.

I think that brings up to date on all of our trips (excluding the weekends we head home to NY to see my family). Enjoy!

Oh, the places we have been... In 2007

14 December 2010

2007 was a semi busy travel year for us...

In January, we took a long weekend in Las Vegas.  We did not gamble much (maybe $10-$20) but enjoyed the city.  Neil chickened out of the rides at the top of the Stratosphere, but I did all of them.  Our last day there we had lunch at the revolving restaurant.  Pretty Cool.
