In a couple of hours, Laura and I will be flying out of this frozen wasteland we call Minnesota. A couple hours later, we'll land in the beautiful countryside of California. I'm pumped for some sun, warmer weather, and getting to see the sights of San Francisco for a couple of days.
After we tour San Francisco and see some family, we're heading south to see Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia, and Death Valley National Parks. In between we'll catch some other California sights.
Then, on March 23, we'll run the Modesto 1/2 Marathon. I have no big ambitions for the race--I decided to finally just take a week off of running altogether in hopes of having my small nagging injuries finally clear up. I'll get in a couple runs while in California, but I've got no goals for the Modesto 1/2 Marathon other than putting in a solid effort.
I'm pumped for this trip, getting to some warmer weather, and adding to our list of national parks we've visited. It's going to be a good one!
