Checking In From Orlando

So here I am, last night in Orlando 😦

This trip was much needed- and every day was spent having the best time possible.  The redhead is as awesome in person as I imagined and we have had a blast.  She is a wonderful hostess and showed me a very good time!

Anyway, just a real quick update:

-Unfortunately, right before I left for the airport (as in 1.5 hours before) my Grandfather passed away.  He had been sick a long time and he fought like hell, but still…you are never prepared.  My amazingly wonderful and supportive family urged me to continue with my trip as planned, so after some tears and family time I headed down to Florida.  I am sure there are people who think I am heartless for leaving at a difficult time, but I have so much love and support from those that know this is what my grandfather would have wanted, that I am 100% okay with my decision.

-This weekend was awesome…I have so many experiences and adventures to blog about but that will all have to wait.  For now, I must get to packing as I am headed to the airport in just 10 hours.  Because I will be returning to home at a busy time with the viewing and funeral, I still might be a bit absent from blogging but hopefully I’ll have a vaca recap up by tomorrow night and the race report complete by Wednesday.

-Speaking of the race, it was awesome!  First half-marathon of 2010 in the books!  Hip held up okay (just okay) but we had a great time and we finished together!  Morgan was a great pacer 🙂

I will leave you with a few photos as a sneak peak…only one race photo though, your just going to have to wait for the good stuff!

Short Sleeves and Flip Flops- 68* and Sunny 🙂

Universal- all dressed up from having went to Capone’s for dinner and a show

On the beach in Jacksonville!

One of my most favorite posts from the race- Team Tu-Tu’s for Ta-Ta’s ♥
