I prepare: I pack my beautiful Brooks shoes and all the necessary running clothes and accessories. I even pack my Garmin. But, it's just wasting space in my suitcase.
As good as my intentions are, it rarely happens. This makes me a little nervous for my half marathon on Sunday ...
But, the good news is I had a fabulous trip.
It started with fabulous barbecue in Kansas City (and a few pickles).
Next up ...
This lead to these being purchased.
Holy crap! These are good. Trader Joe's calls them inside-out carrot cake cookies, but they are more like an icing sandwich. Yum.
It also lead to a healthier photo op.
My dad thinks the Brussels sprouts on the stalk are cool. I do, too.
Later that evening, we went to my brother and sister-in-law's house for dinner. After dinner, Rodeo took inappropriate photos with my brother.
The next day was the main event: Kansas State Wildcats vs. Texas Longhorns.
Tailgating (and many "horns down") ensued.
Eric only brought dress pants.
We had fun coloring our hair purple.
The results were fairly awesome.
And the game was fairly awesome, too (and required more "horns down").
Since the Wildcats won and are Big 12 Champions, after the game was pretty sweet, too.
So, I didn't run. But, I had fun. And I ran Tuesday night, and I'll run Thursday night. And my half marathon on Sunday will go fabulously ... I think.
Do you run when traveling? If so, how do you do it? Have you been to Trader Joe's? Are you a fan? Ever storm a college football field?
