I’m linking up the fabulous #FridayFive again today
So hard to choose just 5!
1. Stowe, Vermont– I’m going to Stowe next month to visit my old college room mate for the weekend. I am beyond excited to hang out for a girls weekend without hubbies or kids. She has been telling me how beautiful Stowe is in the summer and I can’t wait to find out. She has all kinds of runs and hikes planned for us. We got into tons of trouble in college so whatever happens in Stowe..stays in Stowe. Stay tuned for an update late June.
2. Napa Valley, Ca–
I’ve been to Napa twice before but have never had the opportunity to run there. I remember the temps being a gorgeous 60’s with low humidity. It’s an idyllic setting year round but particularly gorgeous in the spring. I’d love to do the Zooma half marathon there next June. My husband is a big wine guy so that’s probably an easy sell. He doesn’t know I’m already planning that one.
3. Santorini, Greece
Our whole extended family was in Santorini two summers ago. The crystal blue waters are indescribable and the white washed houses with blue accents are breathtaking. We had a one day stop over on a cruise and I never got the chance to run there. I hoofed it up this path to the city atop the hill as I was too afraid to ride the donkeys. My kids rode them up and loved every minute of it. I’d love to go back and run up this windy road to the quaint little town up top. The views are unparallelled.
4. Maui, HI
We plan to go to Hawaii for our 20th Wedding Anniversary next summer. We spent our honeymoon in Maui before I was a runner. I can’t wait to go back next year and run along the paths on the beach. I’m picturing Hula dancers and Ukulele players as I run by and maybe someone to hand me a nice cold pineapple drink when I’m done. A girl’s gotta dream big right?
I had the opportunity to accompany my husband on a business trip to Singapore last summer. It was such a vibrant, modern city with gorgeous state of the art buildings like nothing I have ever seen. I actually did run here and it was amazing! I ran through a beautiful orchid garden behind The Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The flowers that grow there are more beautiful than anything I have ever seen in The States. It’s one of the times on a run where I felt I could just run and lose myself in the beautiful surroundings. I’d love the opportunity to go back someday and run there again this time stopping to smell the flowers.
Did I miss anywhere amazing?
