Fun Time Ahead!

Saturday, January 25, 2014

For the past two years, DH and I have chosen to travel in our RV to Pensacola to visit with my DS and BIL during my spring break. Last year, DS suggested that I participate in a 5K with her; for many years, I would NEVER have dreamed of doing this. However, with having become more fitness-minded since joining Sparkpeople, it sounded like something neat to do. As we get closer to early March [the time on our academic calendar when spring break is scheduled], we wondered when the date of the 5K was scheduled, as it is always a weekend prior to St. Patrick's Day, but we weren't sure it was going to be the Saturday while we were going to be there.

Then yesterday I got an email from DS, and it included this:

It is indeed going to be the Saturday we are there again, so I will get to do the 5K again! Woohoo!

    Oh yeah, McGuires. I remember that pub and the 5K. I live much further south, in Florida, but Pensacola is a great area. Enjoy!

We lived near Navarre for many years and March is a great time to do a 5k. The historical district in Pensacola is so pretty too. Enjoy!

    Oh what fun indeed. I would love to do one with my sister but she lives in GA and I couldn't do the heat. I doubt she'd come to Michigan as it is too cold. Maybe a plan to meet in-between is worth pondering.

Look forward to hearing about it and congrats on it all working out and your excitement!! emoticon emoticon
