I took nearly a whole week off of running. Partly because life was so busy and I picked up an extra day of work last week and partly because I really felt like my body needed a small running break. I didn't want to take too long though since I have a Ragnar Relay on the 19th! Eeek! Just saying that makes me a little stressed out about packing!
I was for some reason thinking I would get everything in a carry on. I can already tell that isn't going to happen. I am also taking enough jerky along to fill up my carry on. and I mean completely full of jerky. We are going to be handing it out during the relay. So if you are running the Napa Ragnar and like jerky, look for Team Beef Montana/The Montana Running Ranchers.
This will be my third relay so I have the part down about packing for the relay, more or less it is that this year we are flying and previously we have always drove a big van with lots of room for pillow, blankets and other luggage. Not sure how I will get a pillow and a blanket and all the jerky and all my things in a carry on.
I did start packing yesterday.
Oh wait.. did I forget to mention the part about how my husband is flying down to San Fransisco after the relay to meet up with me for a vacation, just the two of us? That seems to be complicating my packing a little more. I don't know why but I cannot spell Fransico. Francisco. (Wow. Don't expect me to do that again, that was a struggle!)
I may try to have my husband bring down some things for me, but he only wants a carry on of course. and what if he forgets my things?
This week will pass in a blur of work, kid functions and packing. (lil cowgirl started gymnastics and lil cowboy started flag football, husband birthday Monday, lil cowboy birthday treats to school Wednesday, Tuesday night Farm Bureau dinner I am supposed to talk at since they are a major Team Beef Montana sponsor for the relay, fly out Thursday morning. WHEW)
|but really only four days until I leave!!!|
