26.2: Training South of the Border March 13, 2013

Hola! We’ve been on an incredible journey this last week to Puerto Vallarta and back. It was such a blessing to escape the chilly temperatures of good old Spokane, WA and bask in the glow of the sunshine on a beautiful beach. Not only did we warm up our toes but we rejuvenated our spirits. You just have to get away every so often!

 We swam with dolphins, saw a mother whale and escort whale teaching a baby whale to breach the waters and even tried to save some darling baby turtles left behind on the beach.  I even read a book – en entire book (can’t remember the last time that happened)!

We mostly hiked, swam and carried around our 21 month old sun for cross training but I was able to work in some light training jogs on the sandy beaches:

 But as all goods these do, our trip had to come to an end.  The following day my training run wasn’t quite so warm and wonderful…

While it was just a quick little “stay”cation we had so much fun with Ethan at the Silver Mountain water park in Kellogg, ID.  Ethan did great in the water and watched his momma and papa ride the slides a couple of times too.  Of course our little Tyson and Cuba tagged along as you’ll see Cuba enjoying the cozy fire!
