They say it’s your birthday….in two days..

Guess what?

Saturday is my Birthday! Hollah! I’m pretty stoked about it. Except I haven’t decided what I want to do, where I want to go, or what I want in the way of presents and that is so unlike me.

What I do know is that I do want to do something, I do wanna go somewhere, and I do wanna get presents! I just may have to wing it this year.

We’ve been a little busy down here in Venice hanging with family. I haven’t really had much access to the internet or even cable TV. Mostly I’ve been doing this:



And running.

I’ve been running a lot. I’m building up my base with some easy longish runs and when my next races roll around, I’ll be ready.

Now, I need some advice…

What should I do for my birthday down here in Venice, Florida?

What do you do on your birthday?

What do you think would make a good birthday present? (Please pick something good, MacGyver will be reading. *hint hint)

  1. I like to go to dinner for my birthday at a new restaurant. Last year we went to the Edison and this year I’m planning my birthday dinner at ulele. As for presents, are you an iphone person? I’m waiting for the new one to get that as my birthday present. šŸ˜‰

  2. Sometimes I like hanging out at a resort pool and have someone bring me drinks and food.
    How about a seaplane ride or hot air balloon?

    Ask for a SUP?
    I agree with TSA a nice weekend trip.

  3. I always run 10 miles on my birthday and hope to be just a little faster than the year before. As far as presents…I would LOVE a new Garmin maybe a 220 or higher so I can see my pace and distance at the same time. šŸ™‚

  4. What to do? Depends how old you are, errrr, I mean feel =). On my birthday, I usually go kill some sushi! no kidding, at least $200 worth. This year, I’m running ventura full (hint hint). What he should get you?! easy… An entry and plane ticket to LV to run RnR Las Vegas!

    • I would just die if he got me that…but I’m thinking it’ll be more like heres cash, go buy some stuff šŸ˜‰ Sushi huh? That actually sounds really good right now…

  5. My birthday gift has been the same for the past 3 years…a trip to someplace warm: Costa Rica, Florida Keys, Panama! It’s on the 15th of February so a perfect time to escape the Colorado winter and go exploring with my husband. Before that tradition we would go to Denver and see a show and spend the night in a hotel so we could “party like rock stars” (yeah, right). And I agree…have cake and wine and whatever else suits your fancy. It’s YOUR DAY. HAVE FUN!!

    • I love the trip idea! I took MacGyver to Sanibel one year and he’s taken me to the Keys for my birthday but since we bought the vacation house, we go there. So I guess it works out. I’m sure whatever we do will involve some margarita’s and sunshine! šŸ™‚
