Forgotten Ideas Lead to Vacation Bragging

Sometimes I get great ideas for things to blog about.  I'll think about it as I'm driving home from work or getting ready for the day or when I'm out running errands.

And then I forget.  I forget what the heck I thought was such a good idea for a new post... and then here I am after a week of no new blog posts... and I'm staring at the screen willing that forgotten idea to come back to me.

So, until I get another great idea - that I will promptly forget - I'll talk about...

Currently I'm debating on signing up for a half marathon that will be 2 weeks after I get home from a 10 day trip to Hawaii.  Which means that I would need to log 2 long runs (10-12 miles), plus normal training while on vacation.

That's a lot of running that would take time away from the beach and swimming with turtles and dolphins and I don't know if I can commit to it.  It would be a great way to see the island, but - 2 runs that are 2 hours long probably won't fly with the husband that will be taking care of an 18 month old, plus the other people that we are going with, who would be waiting around for me to finish my run before we could go anywhere.

Have you trained for a race while on vacation?  Would you do it again?
