If you have some ideas/photos from your trips.. send themto me..I'd love to see them! As I was pulling up these pictures it struck me how many really great friends I have. I am happy to be able to travel and spend time with some of the most fun, kind, adventurous, intelligent, positive women around! Here are photos from some of my favorite trips.....in no certain order.
DISNEYLAND- You are never too old for Disneyland! If you have never been to a theme park without your kids .....try it, especially if you love roller coasters and food. My cousin and I loved the Blue Bayou Restaurant! There are obviously so many other things you can do on your trip to Southern California too.
ALASKA- If you are a little more adventurous head to Alaska!! We combined our trip with a race, The Mayor's Half Marathon in Anchorage. Alaska is so beautiful. We actually saw a lot in three days but I would recommend a longer trip if you have time. Do take time to go to Denali National Park to see Denali, the tallest peak in North America.
A LOCAL SPA- Another idea if you want to stay close to home...find a local spa/resort and spend an afternoon or a full day. Many times you can buy one service (massage, etc.) and then spend the day in the spa. Me and some of my best friends/neighbors went to the Rock Barn spa about 50 miles from our house in NC and had a fantastic day...massages, lunch, champagne, hot tubs.......we didn't want to come home!
MYRTLE BEACH- If you live in the South Eastern U.S. Myrtle Beach is a good destination, especially for a race. It is within driving distance of many of my friends in the south so it is a good meeting spot. The Diva Half Marathon was a great choice for a race.......IF you like pink and want a FLAT course.
SHEROX TRIATHLON SERIES- For the ladies who would like to do a sprint triathlon I suggest the SheRox series. I've done two of them..Miami and Phoenix and they are a blast. Here is me and one of my best friends at the Expo for the Phoenix event a couple of years ago. I was SO proud of us both but especially her for completing her first race of this kind!
BROADWAY MUSICAL- Broadway musicals and plays are a great girls outing. Of course it is fun to see them in NYC or a major city but you possibly do this in your own town. Me and three of my friends had a fun night out going to dinner and then seeing Legally Blonde in Charlotte. Great excuse to get dressed up!
