It’s been awhile! So, the title of this post is a play on the title of my blog, and a preview of some hopefully exciting blogs to come. I am off to New York next week to run the NYC half marathon (check out the very cool course – map below). As you all may remember from my other posts about running, I am no world-class athlete, so I got into this race the old-fashioned way – by getting my name drawn in a lottery. It was very exciting to get the email this past December telling me I had made it in.
Now, I have to tell you I was worried about going, as I (had) an upcoming jury trial in April. I thought I was cutting it close, but would make sure I was well-prepared in advance. Then what do you know – the trial just got reset for June. While that was rather disappointing, suddenly I had a big swath of open time….and lots of miles saved up…..and the ongoing dream of going back to Italy (to language school in Lucca to be precise)…. It seems as though the universe wanted me to go…..so after NYC I am off to try and remember how to speak Italian (and I am certain, take a cooking class or two). Stay tuned!
