Vacation Plans

My husband wanted me to make some plans for our upcoming vacation, so this is what I found:

Doesn't that look like fun? I thought so. The rest of my family did not.

I have always had a fondness of climbing up to high places.

                                            Mt. Kilimanjaro Summitt - 19,341 ft  (1997)

...and jumping down from high places

                                          Leap of Faith at Atlantis - 60 ft (Bahamas 2012)

Unfortunately, no one else in my family cares for heights. They will humor me though and hike up high places with me, as long as they are attached to terrra firma most of the time. My husband should know by now that if he puts me in charge of finding something to do, it most likely will involve some height. We took a family trip to Korea about 8-9 years ago and I had to go see all the mountaintop Buddist shrines. I ended up carrying a kid in a backpack and another in my arms so we could do it. We went to Savannah, GA several years ago for Spring Break but we had to stop in Chimney Rock, NC so we could hike up to the top of Chimney Rock. Get the picture?

Well, since rappeling down the waterfall got vetoed, this is what I planned instead:

Sunday - find an Easter service, then check out the waterfalls at La Paz and/or the Poas Volcano
Monday - zipline canopy tour of the cloudforest in MonteVerde
Tuesday - rest/beach
Wednesday - whitewater raft 18 miles of the Pacuare River
Thursday - rest/beach

I'm hoping to get my runs in on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday if I have some time. Everything we have planned involves driving at least 1.5 hours in a different direction; MonteVerde is a 4 hour drive each way. I'm not sure if I'll have time so I'll just see how it goes.

I got a 5 mile run in this morning so 25 miles total for the week. I didn't get any cross-training done.

Anyone want to rappel down a waterfall with me? Rappeling is easy. Just don't get your feet above your head or else you'll flip over.
