After hearing that my mom was in the hospital for the second time in the past 2 months, I was really feeling the need to pay her a visit. She lives in eastern PA and suffers from heart disease and emphysema. It is a difficult feeling knowing that my mom may not be around for much longer. I talk to her on the phone often and send her letters each month. It has been a year since my last in person visit for her 70th birthday party.
So last week I decided to make the trip to PA with my kids. In one way for her to visit with her grandkids, but probably more for me. We were able to get a great deal on plane tickets. Allegiant Air flies from Sanford-Orlando to Allentown, PA for $59 one way. Beats driving (and happens to be cheaper). We leave tomorrow and will return on Thursday morning.
She is home from the hospital now and is thrilled that we are coming to visit. I am looking forward to some time to visit with her.
So I will be off line for a bit! I am going to try to keep up some running while gone. I am doing my long run tomorrow so I don't miss that - and will try to get a couple of 4-5 milers in during the week. I am taking the iRiver...you never know what kind of adventures you may run into :-)
Have a great running week everybody!!!
