On the Road Again...

Holy smokes! How did I allow more than a week to pass without a fresh post? Well... easy, really. I won't bore you with the details, but things have been really hoppin' around the Roche casa the last several weeks.

Early tomorrow, we are hitting the road for a family vacation; heading out to Delaware to spend the week with one of our girls and her husband. It's also going to be a walk down memory lane for me, as we are going to visit where I was stationed while I was in the Coast Guard (lots of emotions around that one, that's for sure).

Our bags are packed and we plan to hit the road bright and early; that may or may not happen, but I'm not sweating it.Most of my gear going on the trip: Running shoes. Chuck Taylor's (for strength and kettlebell sessions), jump rope, reflective vest, stop watch, kettlebell, mat and H2O bottles. These few items, a couple pair of shorts, shirts, hat and sunglasses and I'm good to go for a week on the road. And, yes, we have lots of healthful foods and snacks packed and ready to go. No Excuses!

So, what's my BTWG plan for the week? Well, I planned my training so that this week would hit as a "recovery week". So, I have plans for a few runs, and I'm bringing along one of my kettlebells, a jump rope, and my mat for a few sessions of "fun". I've also planned a couple "free meals" while traveling. Other than that, I'm looking forward to taking my Project experience on the road. I'll let you know how it goes!

While away, I do not know if I will have email access, so if you email, it may be a while before you hear from me : )

You set a great example for being prepared to keep up your training even when on the road. And I also love that you are planning some free-meals along the way. Part of a good lifestyle is to ENJOY IT! And I hope it's a great time for you and the family.

Lots of love and thanks that you are in our life,
