I hit a milestone birthday last Thursday (the, ahem, big four-oh) and, for my prezzie, my BF whisked me off to Rome for the weekend. I nearly died of shock when he handed me the tickets. I doubly nearly died of shock when I saw the date. All my friends were in on the secret. I was plotting a few drinks on Sat night and they were all emailing me back saying "Yep, I'll be there" and "No problem, babysitter is organised" etc. Sheesh!!
ROME - what a city!!!! The sights, the pizzas, the wine, the SUN, the statues of naked men.... I've always wanted to go there, it's been on my hit list for years but I just never got there. But now I can say I've been there. Yaaaay!
I ate my weight in pizzas but walked it off ten times over, I've never walked so much. We got back late last night and I had to go back to work this morning. I had to come down the stairs sideways this morning I was in such pain. Honestly! I've got aches in muscles I never knew existed.
I'll post some photos on my SP shortly, when I get myself organised!

My nutty (super-fit) Irish buddy, Ellen, lives in Colorado. A few of us will be turning 40 this year and she wants to come back and mark the occasion in a special way. Her notion of "special" is to enter herself and four others innocents as a relay team in the Cork City Marathon here in Ireland on 1st June. HELP! Ellen has completed lots of marathons, but us remaining four idiots are complete novices.
Thankfully, she gave me first choice and I picked the shortest stage (3.2 miles). Even if I CRAWL it, it'll take me an hour max. Obviously I don't want to crawl, so I'm going to ease myself into some gentle training.
How do I get myself talked into these things??
