Before I Go

Hey there! I’m typing this up in between packing my bag and tidying the house for the cat sitter (aka my mom)! Adam and I will be heading out to La Romana in less than 24 hours and as usual, I’ve left EVERYTHING to do at the last minute.

Yesterday mi madre and I went out on a little shopping spree to pick up all the things that I had forgotten to get leading up to this weekend.

You know what? I like doing things last minute. The pressure spurs me into action and I get stuff done in a really efficient manner!

All of this last minute craziness reminds me of late night cram sessions in grad school. My friends and I would stay up until 5AM Skyping with each other trying to get our 20+ page papers finished before class. I would then sleep for 60 minutes before hopping out of bed to get ready for work!

Oy! Those were “fun times” but I don’t exactly miss them. I much prefer last minute cramming for a fun vacation :).

I should probably stop distracting myself here on the blog and go finish up with packing and cleaning.

I’ll have a recap of my long run + weekly training tomorrow and after that lots of pretty pictures from the DR! Talk to you again soon!

What is the top item in your travel essentials list? 
– I need to make sure I’m not forgetting anything important!
