  • I enjoyed getting so much walking in in Kansas City – both while we were out doing touristy things, and when going on purposeful walks. Sometimes I feel like all I do is sit around on vacation, and I am happy that wasn’t the case!
  • This is the first week in a long time I haven’t swum! I was planning on it, by my cold moved from my chest to my head and I had a hard time breathing out of my nose. I didn’t want to go to the pool in those conditions! I also skipped a Sunday long run due to my breathing and body temperature regulation issues. I didn’t want to push it. Wah. And Sunday was such a nice day for a long run! Hopefully next week will be too.

    I always make plans to run when I’m traveling, but rarely do so – sometimes there’s just too much other stuff going on. But it’s great to explore new areas and I’m glad you got to do just that. 🙂

    Being able to vacation and be active is the best 🙂
    I love your Saturday picture lol that is bundled up! I love that you get out there and get it done.

    That sounds like a fun vacation! I’m sorry about the cold and difficulty breathing though. Hopefully that’s on the way to improving.
