First of all, it was 8 days and nights of pure family bliss. We made memories, we cherished each other, we laughed, we even cried. We rested, we played. We ran, we walked, we read, we swam, and we ate. Lord almighty did we eat! We tried new things (passion fruit, scuba diving, pool volleyball,… Continue reading Riviera Maya: hasta la vista!
Our last day! Doug and Ruthie left the resort for a 3.5 mile run (CRAZY) while I attempted a run on the beach. Unfortunately, running barefoot the day before made my ankle very cranky so I walked instead! But I did witness another amazing sunrise.

There… Continue reading Riviera Maya: Day 4!

While we both knew we wouldn’t have a regular and complete week of training, neither of us wanted to slack off too much! So this morning, we… Continue reading Riviera Maya: Day 3!
We decided to give the room service a try this morning, since we were all really tired from the long travel day before, and because we really didn’t know the resort well enough to know where to go for breakfast! All you have to do for room service is fill out a slip of paper… Continue reading Riviera Maya: Day 2!
