Just a couple of weeks after being back from vacation in Germany, I was off to Amsterdam, Eindhoven, and Kyiv again. The trip was for office visits and Casual Connect Kyiv 2010.

With the Berlin Marathon out of the way, the rest of the trip was quite relaxing. : ) After Berlin, we went to Goettingen, where my boyfriend grew up and where his sister’s family lives. We were able to stay in the newly renovated downstairs flat at his sister’s house. Goettingen is known for its strong ties to academics. It is a university town and many famous scholars are from the area.

On September 24, I was off to Germany again. This time, the trip was for vacation with my German boyfriend. He has run 35 marathons and signed us up for the 2010 Real Berlin Marathon.

Also in August, I went on a wine tasting weekend trip to Walla Walla, Washington, for a girlfriend’s birthday. We stayed in a beautiful, large house just outside of the city and hired an SUV limo driver to be our designated driver.

I ran my first-ever trail run on August 7, 2010 in a rockin’ pair of Brooks Adrenaline ASR trail shoes: The Grand Ridge Trail Run half marathon! It took me an hour more than my usual half marathon time. The terrain was very steep and hilly – and dirty. I was probably one of the slowest people (not having trained for a trail run!) at 3:08:00, but it was a fun adventure and good excuse to relax for the rest of the day. : )
