This is the last trip we will take before the baby. On Monday I hopped on a plan with Matt to Florida to attend a track & xc coaches conference. He had been planning to go for a while, and I was preparing to stay at home and finish up work or get ready for Christmas at our house. Then I realized this was it, the last chance that I could go… so I did.
In addition to attending the seminars and hearing some great coaches talk about 10k training, steeplechase, and creating team culture – among other things – we have been enjoying the warm weather. We are talking about what our top names are for the baby, what to cook for Christmas dinner and how next year at this time it will be so different.
We made a trip up to winter park to walk around and stop in Rifle Paper, which was a treat, and I spent an afternoon by the pool in the only bathing suit that fits : a bikini. I think it looks ok too… but if it doesn’t at least I don’t know anyone around here.
It’s been relaxing, and a great way to spend some time together before the holidays. I’m looking forward to coming home (I don’t think I would make it in Florida year round) but am pretty sure the temperature is going to shock me. Here’s to a white Christmas!
