The past six weeks have been an oddly stationary period in my life.
I haven't been running or flying.
|My right calf is recalcitrant.|
Fortunately (or unfortunately?) I found a new pool for pool running.
(More on that later...)
And fortunately (or unfortunately?) I'm nearing the end of almost six weeks on the ground before a whirlwind of autumn travel begins that will keep me in the air or on the road every other week - sometimes every week - from now until the end of the year.
My upcoming travel is a very good thing. I have a serious case of itchy feet - and not just because of PF and my cranky calf.
|Noun: itchy feet - a very strong or irresistible impulse to travel; wanderlust|
Indeed I'll be traveling enough that I'll want - and need - a rest when the winter is over. I'm looking forward to being travel-weary three months from now the way I look forward to the being exhausted and taking a good long nap after a hard race.
But that doesn't start 'til tomorrow...
In the meantime, here are a few of the travel-ish blogs I've relied on for a fix while I've been resting.
- Travel Spot is one of my go-to blogs. I particularly enjoyed the recent "signs" post, especially "beware of alligators" and "things found in tires."
- I See Trails is my way of enjoying hikes up majestic mountains when I can't get away from flat (*cough*) Florida.
- (Just) Trying is for Little Girls is a favorite of mine. You're probably thinking "this isn't a travel blog!" But hear me out on this: Kim is racing her way through 13.1s in all 50 states. For the past few weeks I've been living vicariously through her miles (both running and frequent flier).
- I found Mo Travels through Running Trip. I found Running Trip when I was looking for places to run in Barcelona a year ago. I enjoy both.
