Snap back to reality

We got in from the islands this afternoon...picked up Koz. I gave him a bath as soon as I got home. My inside dog was an outside dog for a week...and boy did he smell like it! I think he had a great time at "camp" he has been asleep for 4 hours solid. He even slept while I cooked and ate my dinner - that NEVER happens!

Glad to be home...but I will miss:

seeing my sister, Tony and nephews every day
my father and S having no phone or bb service
naps after breakfast
my momma TRULY relaxed
incredible beach sunsets
geckos (they are like squirrels there!)
pina coladas
mango dacaris
TRULY fresh fish
the still, clear ocean
sand that feels like sugar
finding sand dollars
not understanding what people are saying around you...and really not caring
....and so much more

pictures to come (...I hope, S just realized that he might have left his camera on the plane...YIKES!)

I have to say that I don't think there is anything that could have inspired me any more (to get it going again) than to come home and read all of your great race reports! MAJOR CONGRATS to everyone!

I ran three miles (40 minutes, 38 minutes in zone) the first day and lets just say that I cross trained the rest of the time! But I am back on the wagon...ready to go. You all have inspired me once again!

Take Care

Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?

Sounds like you had a great time and some great memories. Since you're quoting Eminem:"Snap back to reality" Ha!
