My legs are still heavy from my run across Idaho, so I decided that I need a little vacation. Any excuse will work, right? And since I've never been to Costa Rica before, I thought next week would be a great time to go. Flawless logic, I know.
It's the "low" travel season in Costa Rica, which means "high" rain - but that's generally what happens in rain forests, so no matter. I found a great deal on airline tickets that I simply couldn't pass up. Believe me, I tried to pass it up, but I just couldn't do it.
I'm ending the trip in the San Francisco Bay Area to join my friend Angie as she runs 40 miles on her 40th birthday. (Read her inspiring story.)
Here's what my trip is looking like so far:
-14-hour overnight layover (on purpose) to catch a Monday night Mets game.
(anyone in New York want to catch the game with me?)
-no plans yet; I'll wing it with a pair of running shoes and a camera.
-other than the 40-mile run on the 25th with Angie, I'll be winging it here too.
-Giants aren't in town, but will try to catch an A's game either Friday night or Sunday afternoon.
(anyone got a room I can crash in for the weekend?)
My Spanish isn't muy good, but to me that's part of the excitement of traveling. I'm a very good pointer, which helps mucho.
Keep running! And traveling!
