It's go-time!

It's finally here!  After months of looking forward to our little running getaway to Pretoria, the time has finally come - yeehaw!  Here's what I'm looking forward to most:

1.  A fun little running stop-over en route

It shouldn't be too hard to guess this one...  Let's just say that it involves the coolest running community on the planet, and a 5 km run on the banks of the Vaal River...  To say that I'm excited is an understatement, ha!  (Can you tell?)

2.  A dress-up fun run with Miss K 

Our tutus are ready, our fairy wands are packed, and our pinker than pink outfits have been coordinated...  Spar Women's Race, are you ready for us??  

3.  Healthy take-out food

If you live in the sticks, like we do, where neon pink viennas and greasy French fries are still regarded as a sensible (and often the only) take-out option, going to a big city with healthy take-out food is huge.  Heavenly, actually.  Smoothies!  Acai bowls!  Freshly pressed juice!  Bliss, I tell you.

Kicking it all off with some yummy padkos.

4.  Fancy-schmancy hotels

Somehow entering the doors of a fancy hotel feels really wrong with this little mini tornado of a young family of mine...  But we're going to anyway.  And we're going to love every, luxurious minute of it.  Let the hotel staff worry about the chocolate fingerprints on the crisp, white linen later, right?     

5.  A change of scenery

I'm so in need of a break.  Our last getaway was in March, and since then it's been go, go, go, so I'm really looking forward to just letting my hair down and hanging out with the crew.  Nothing sounds better to me right now than strolling around in flip-flops with nowhere particular to go...  I.  Can't.  Wait.       

So, if you'll excuse me, we have a car to pack...  See you on the other side!


  1. Have a great time and enjoy every minute of it! One of my favorite things about traveling is not having to cook, worry about laundry or cleaning. so relaxing!

    1. Thanks, Christy!

      And yes, I agree - no cooking, cleaning or laundry is definitely a big, big part of the fun! :)
