Since it’s Friday, I’m linking up with three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC . Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!) They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!
My Friday Five topic is Five Ways to Enjoy a Non-Running Vacation.
Right now I am in Naples, Florida for 8 days with 9 NON-RUNNING friends. You know how much I love to run and still I always have a great time.
- Find another sport that gets you moving.
We usually play tennis for at least two hours every morning. Not many miles on the legs when playing doubles but I’m still moving (and sweating.)
2. Get those miles in however you can.
No better place to walk than along the water.
I also have access to a bike to ride around the neighborhood.
3. If possible, squeeze in a few short runs.
It’s tough when you stay out late every night and you get up early to play tennis. So the runs are short but rewarding.
4. Do other things you enjoy that you usually do not do.
We go to the theater.
We visit gardens & parks.
We go on sunset cruises.
5. Eat healthy during the day but in the evening, do some no-guilt splurging.
I eat my usual oatmeal in the morning, yogurt & fruit at the beach for lunch and then…. No limits!
We go out to dinner every night. It is always a blast.
Happy Running! Do you take non-running vacations? What do you do to for fun instead of run?
