on motivation

Taverna Trilussa, Rome, summer 2008

Two years ago we three managed an impromptu girls-only week in Rome.   For years we had been talking about meeting up somewhere and when the opportunity presented itself, we jumped on it.  It was beyond fantastic.  We focused on food and exploring – avoiding the tourists crowds as much as possible.

Mostly though, we enjoyed some much needed sister time without the usual distractions.   At the end of the trip, we vowed to do it again.  Preferably every year – realistically every few years.   Next summer is the three year mark.   The wheels have started to turn.   We’re still trying to decide on a location – Rome is a favorite but there are others high on the list.

The thought of running around Italy again with my sisters, consuming large (but respectable) quantities of pasta and prosecco, and not caring if a breeze catches my skirt and exposes my legs is really all the motivation I need right now to keep up with my training.

    if the running and getting shape is the thing that will get us back to rome….agreed! that’s motivation enough for me.

    Could you see us trying to maneuver our Vespa’s through the streets of Rome? holy moly.
