Back to Normal...

...we enjoyed a wonderful cruise from San Diego to Acapulco and back. I am happy to report that I actually read NOTHING (except Treasury) and wrote NOTHING. Felt fabulous. I did run. Three and half times around top deck was one mile. I ran on ship Friday for 5 miles, Sunday for 7 miles, Tuesday for 10 miles and Thursday I met my goal for this summer: I ran 13 miles for a 1/2 marathon. That's 35 miles running for the cruise itself. New goal? I might have to run a marathon! And yes, I ran in the vibrams the whole time. I have decided running on the deck of a ship under the sun with mountains and ocean sailing past is the perfect running situation. Oh, and that drink Cindi is holding below...MMMMMMM! We call it "an adult milk shake." Chocolate Mocha Getaway. Not for every day... Most wonderful memory? A night time sail around Acapulco bay under the stars, sipping a beer (or two) - Cindi sipping a glass of wine (or two). Thanks to the Van Ulfts (pictured below on first dress up night) for suggesting the idea of a cruise and taking us virgin cruisers under the wing, as it were.

Some random pics...

I'm confused.

The drink Cindi is holding doesn't look like Guinness...

New goal? Have a rest!

So, did your Spanish get a little boost too?

Glad you're back. In one piece no less. Just in time for some winter weather. 72 in central Mo today. Calling for snow tomorrow night. That's just wrong

Pax.

I'm gonna start ending my posts with "bellum".

Definitely NOT a Guinness!

Doorman, that's what this was: a rest (that let me run 35 miles!!!).

Terry, almost ZERO opportunity to practice. Schade... ;)

Scott, it was pleasant when we got in last night, a bit chillier today.

Terry, as in ante?
