My memorial day was a lot of fun. I normally spend it being lazy, opening my pool that I manage or just hanging out. This year was different as I drove all the way to Charollettesville, VA. (all the way, meaning….2.5 hours…ha).
Something that has been asked to me a lot via email is what do I eat when I travel? Do I get nervous that it isn’t my normal food, or food that I’m used too? Does it make me anxious?
*First, I eat enough to fuel me.
The answer to being nervous and anxious-well no not really. Don’t get me wrong-I love the travels I do and I love eating out, but eating out everyday for a week is when I normally get sick of it. There comes a certain point though when all I want to eat is homemade food or not make a big production of going out to eat.
Plus-I’m forever hungry so I’m always eating more than everyone else combined. Why yes those are 5 powerbars and 3 muscle milks in my back pocket…problem? I just always remember that a week is nothing in your big scheme of life. You can get back on board when you get home and not worry in the moment.
This weekend I was lucky enough to go hang out with my running buddy and his family in Charolettesville. His grandparents made homemade ice-cream (the best I’ve ever had), we had ribs, brisket. Everything was so good.
If I hadn’t mentioned before, Tim is also a collegiate skiier, so water skiing was like…no big deal…for him. For me it was instadeath.
I “preferred” this water bouncy thing. When they were pulling us around, we thought it would be funny to dive off when they weren’t looking.
Question for you:
1. What do you do about traveling and eating?
2. How was your memorial day?
