On a boat

I’ve packed my swim trunks, my flippy floppies and my running shoes for my Caribbean vacation, plus about a zillion other things that make up one very heavy suitcase. How can little tank tops weigh so darn much?

The cruise ship has a fitness room with machines that I assume include treadmills, so I hope to run at least every other day… or maybe a day here and a day there… uhhh, I’ll just do the best I can between the buffet and the bottomless pina coladas.

(Pretty sure there are no bottomless pina coladas, but I’ll try my darndest to make it seem like there are.)

I’m planning for this to be an active trip, with shore activities like ziplining and snorkeling on the tentative agenda. The Green Lake Gobble 5K is the morning after I get back, and I’ll need to stay at least a little in shape to get through it in defiance of jet lag and overall post-vacation exhaustion.

I think I’ll feel better and have more energy, too, if I can get some exercise in. Isn’t that always the case?

I’ll let ya know how it goes!
