While last week should have been all about focusing on Puerto Rico, it was largely about waiting for boxes, driving to Miami and checking out of our old place. In fact, I realized David and I have been in 6 different hotels in the last 4 weeks!
On the plus side someone else is doing the cleaning and you realize how few things you really need to get through your day. On the downside I am DYING for a green smoothie and some food not from a restaurant. We did our best to stock up where possible with fruits or veggies. And I can’t wait to share with you what I found in Puerto Rico! While the main cuisine might be fried, rice, and beans, we stumbled upon some great local eateries serving up amazing dishes with plenty of veggies.
As noted last week the goal was to keep it simple, flow with each day and not stress out…I have to say mission accomplished!
Life is full of surprises. It’s best to just go with the flow.
I am so very grateful to be back to our new home today…even if it’s not unpacked yet! Thanks for all the well wishes on our move and the conversations on Facebook about it always make me laugh! I can’t believe how many of you have moved over 20 times in your life!!
Goal for the week: Rest. Recovery. This applies to my legs, my brain and most importantly my digestive system. I’ll be doing a detox from restaurant food and processed food!

Having trouble remembering to do them? Try setting a daily reminder around the time you watch a favorite TV show or put a note in your gym bag. For those who are on track and doing them daily, what other tips would you share to help someone else make it a habit?
Keep up the great pre-hab it’s so worth it! I know there are almost 100 of you determined to be stronger runners and I know that a little accountability is going to keep all of us on track! I certainly had to remind myself daily with all of the craziness around here, but it’s worth it because not a single thing hurts after the race besides a little muscle soreness.
I am grateful for the amazing opportunity we had this weekend to spend time together doing one of my favorite things!
