Vacation Highlights

Well, in a few hours my vacation is over (I know, I know most of you are saying "finally"!) I had a wonderful almost full month off from work and, while I am not fully looking forward to it yet, I am ready to go back to work.

Here are some of the highlights from my vacation!

Trail running

This is an obvious one! During my time off from work I was able to run 65.45 miles on various trails. Most of our other runs that were on roads during this time were run with our trail running friends, as well.

Walks with Bernie

One of the best parts about not working is that I get to spend time with Bernie.

Spending time with friends and family

We were able to see both of our families for Christmas, which is nice since we don't get to see them very often. We ran with friends a lot, and saw them outside of running, and we were able to see Crystal, Joe (the month of January is taken care of!), Janell and Aaron!

Ran my first race of the year, and placed

While in Pennsylvania spending time with Crystal, Joe, Janell and Aaron we ran our first race of the year. Janell was the race director for CJ's Resolution Challenge and it was a gorgeous, cold, day on the trails!

Quality Swim/Bike/Run time

Just in the month of January I have swam 1.55 miles, biked 112.11 miles and ran 78.23 miles. Thanks to our friend Jenny, Mike and I are now able to ride on trainers at the same time!

I'm sad to see this vacation go, but luckily I only have 9 weeks to go until my next vacation!


  1. Bernie will be so sad you are going back to work. He wishes you were his stay at home mom I am sure.

  2. Seems like an awesome break to me! Hope the transition back to work goes well :)

  3. A month long vacation sounds glorious! Looks like you made the most of it.

  4. What an awesome vacay! I'm jealous.

  5. The Bern! ;) What a cutie! Hope your first few days back at work are going smoothly!
