Phew. The days just keep on rolling by, and it’s almost June!
May has been a pretty great month though!
Every year around this time the running blog world goes crazy with “5 tips to run in the blazing heat” type posts and every year I yawn when I see them.
My cocky runner self is all, “Oh you think 85 is hot? That’s cold to me, I live in South Florida!” The thing is, this year I seem to have lost all of my marbles.
I guess that break I took from running in March – April wiped away everything I know about running in the heat because I have been TERRIBLE at the hydration game!
The last two runs my calves have been super tight, probably from not enough hydration, and I keep thinking I’ll be okay without a water bottle!
I need to get my act together and keep water with me 24/7. I mean, you only know you’re a runner in summer when you have to pee 500 times a day, right?
Dehydrated or not, I am grateful that I was able to get back to an almost normal running and workout schedule in May!
If you’re a frequent reader here you’ve heard me talk briefly about the merger that the company I work for is going through and how my role is evolving as I move into a director level position.
The chips are finally starting to fall into place! I’m no longer working until 10 at night (most days anyway) and I feel organized (most of the time anyway).
Oh yeah, and that whole compensation thing is getting worked out too!
Everything on the home front is GREAT! My mom has finally committed to moving to Fort Lauderdale later this summer and I couldn’t be happier. It will be so nice to have her nearby instead of a five hour drive away!
After her husband passed away two years ago she said she was going to move here, but she wasn’t sure about timing. Eventually my grandfather moved in with her and she cared for him until he passed away this January.
Now my mom finally feels closure and is ready to move on with her life. She is looking forward to new beginnings!
Also, Adam and I are planning out our summer trip!!! This August we’re planning to go to La Romana in the Dominican Republic for the first time!
The details are not hashed out yet, but I am really excited! This will be our first time staying at an all-inclusive resort. I’ve always thought they were cheesy, but you can find some really nice gems if you look in the right places!
A colleague of mine recommended staying at the Grand Bahia Principe which looks incredible! I can’t wait!

Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL?!
Going in August will be the best way to ring in the 29th year of my life. Last one in the 20s!
How’s your summer hydration going? Back to drinking a million gallons per day?
Have you ever been to the Dominican Republic (La Romana area)? If so I’d love your tips for day trips!
