I've started using the excuse of "oh I'll do that AFTER the marathon" or "I can't think about that until AFTER the marathon." Right now, I just want to pack, eat well, sleep well and check of everything on the ten checklists, ten times.

I've traveled to races before, I don't really know why I feel unprepared. I mean, I have checklists!

Situations in which I've used the race as an excuse to put something off:

Finishing my Christmas shopping.

Decorating for Christmas.

Getting a hair cut.

Going through the mail.

Any laundry that does not involve clothes for the trip (you should see my wardrobe this week, lookin' pretty hot!)

Writing Christmas cards.

Starting my end of year tasks at work.

And I'm sure, much more.

However, I have found time to book my villa.


Because after this week's craziness is over, I'd like something to look forward to.

I love it!
Excuse or Reason? Doesn't matter!
I know you will enjoy.
Right now most folks are using the Christmas thing as a reason for not doing things...I'll start start saving money or exercising or whatever after the holidays.

Where is the villa? I guess also where is the marathon? Compare that pic to the one a few days ago of the snow in Colorado....

Skinny- I agree, it doesn't matter, does it? :)

RGF- I know the feeling! A whole weekend of sleep always sounds good but who knows when I'll get it!

eb- Email me, and I'll share the info. :)

I'm going to look into booking a villa this weekend for Feb.

Everything else can wait until after you've finished the marathon.
