If you didn't get that reference, well...google.
Unfortunately, the voucher expired before I could make the return trip to home from Zihuatanejo. So I had to choose another exotic locale. Mazatlan it was! I was hoping the complete removal of myself from what I had known for the past four years and taking a trip to somewhere I had never been before would clear my head and help me get a fresh start.
I fought with sand crabs.
Got pummeled by waves.
And actually did some work. Poolside. Next to the ocean. Wi-fi rocks.
The work I was doing was a little freelance work for a company which puts on a series of destination half-marathons, called, interestingly enough, Destination Races. Well, things have come full-circle and in July I will be not only running one of their races, the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon, I will be participating in their Speakers Seminar series as well.
As I crawl my way back to a different type of being in shape, after building up my body to handle the rigors of the AOR 202, one of the things I wanted to do was take part in more half-marathons. I have always loved the distance but have done just a handful of them. So it is with great pleasure that I am able to work with Destination Races and help promote this great series.
I mean, heck, if Valerie Bertinelli is there, why aren't you?
