Running from Sea to Shining Sea!

Nikemom has this cool ideal to run from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific with all her friends. Since, we all can't take the time off work, we're going to do it VIRTUALLY!

And you can join in the fun.

Starting January 1 we will be leaving from somewhere on the east coast, maybe Nova Scotia. Is it cold there this time of year? Running down into Maine and maybe a visit to LL Bean and then onto Boston. We must stop at Heartbreak Hill.

Then south, where it's warmer. I really want to go over the Verazzano Bridge and do a loop around Central Park. How about running down the mall in DC and up a country road in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Well, you get the point. This is going to be quite scenic and a great way to keep motivated while you are running back home.

I plan to be the leader when we reach Arizona. A virtual run down the Grand Canyon and maybe a water stop on Arizona's most famous corner (don't google it, you'll just spoil the surprise). Can you guess which one?

Come join us as we run around America.

today's workout: Upper body and lower body weights. 34 minutes on the exercise bike while I watched the Suns get pounded.

Did you google it? Don't tell anyone else.

Sounds like a fun adventure!

Woo! Since they're too hard to do for real, maybe I'll run through the hills of San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, and through the Marin Headlands. Dunno if I could do that in real life, them's steep!

Sounds pretty cool to me. Let's just stay away from the stretch of I-40 through Texas and New Mexico. Boring!!

And I have stood in Winslow myself. ;-)
