I would like to thank Madonna and Michael

For the best 11 mile training run I can remember.

First, I would like to thank the weather. I almost forgot what it was like to run when the heat index isn't over 90 degrees before 8 am.

My quads would like to thank the hills. Without you I would not have been reminded that not all landscapes are as flat as Florida - and neither is the Brooklyn Bridge.

To the other vacationing runners of Menorca - thank you for acknowleging and waving back to my friendly smiles and American "buenos dias." I know it is not a part of your culture to speak to strangers that pass by.

And finally, the most important thank you goes out to the spaniard´s ipod. Fully loaded with old school Madonna and Michael Jackson. Without "Like a Prayer" and "Man in the Mirror" during mile 7 and 9, this morning´s run would not have been possible. Thank you Madonna - Thank you Michael.


  1. LOVE that picture of you! Looks like a real treat. If only we had spanish tile outdoor showers overlooking a view of la playa. Oh well... a girl can dream, can't she? :)

  2. Hola Ang! To say it was refreshing is an understatement! If you don't have it...part life is figuring where you can get it. You can mark the tile and outdoor showers off your list. :) Mucho Besos!
