This week, during some of the quiet times on the ship, I have been thinking a lot about what is means to be strong and live a courageous life.

This week I am preparing and packing for vacation. My husband and I are going to be taking a two week cruise in the Mediterranean. We will be visiting Italy, Turkey, and Greece. In order to prepare for travel, one of the most important things I do is to plan and write down my schedule and workouts ahead of time. It is important for me, that while I am away, I still find time to workout. Working out is an important part of my everyday life and I want to make sure I can continue to maintain some sort of balance and routine even while I travel. Plus, since I have started my training for the NYC marathon I need to run 6 days a week. So it’s even more critical for me to have a workout plan in place. I want to be sure I get my workouts in and still have plenty of time to enjoy this once in a lifetime vacation.
About 5 years ago, when I lived in Brookline, MA a friend of mine was trying to get me to start running with her. At the time, she was training for her first marathon and I remember thinking she was crazy! I had no desire to run, let alone train for a marathon. I often argued with her and told her I couldn’t run, that I wasn’t built that way, and that my body was not physically capable of such a thing. Looking back, I could not have been more wrong. Today, I love running and wish I would have started sooner because everyone can be a runner! Whether your run a 12 minute mile or 7 minute mile you are still a runner!
