So as you might remember (since I posted a WEEK ago!) that I went on an awesome Holland America cruise through Alaska. Here was our route:
The trip was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone....basically as soon as you are on the boat you don't have to worry about anything. Food and travel is planned for you (with many options!) so all you need to do is plan time to get to that pesky treadmill. I was usually the only one there, and managed to put in 22 miles on the boat (it was after the half, and I was getting sea-sick running on the moving treadmill!) Here are a few running related pictures before I go into the full blown cruise review picspam (You have been warned!):
Amazing and empty gym I had to myself

Notice there is nobody else there?!
One run...probably not the best idea since it was extremely rocky that day. I was holding on to the treadmill the entire time to NOT fall off. You know you're a runner when...... :)
Cooling off after a run....
The BF and I in Glacier Bay
Naturally I found the Alaskan Brewery in Juneau :)
Alaskan White is the best!! Yep, it's a wheat beer.....
Red Dog Tavern in Juneau
Creek Street in Ketchikan
Finding the perfect gift for friends.....kidding. WTH is that? A furkini??
Yep, even finding SUN in Alaska. So what if it was 62 degrees!!
Overall it was a great week! Unfortunately I have been really busy after getting back (finding apartments is very time consuming!!) and I have barely had time to run let alone blog. I will have to find time next week after my weekend trip to Vegas this weekend. And to answer the questions now, yes, I will be bringing my shoes to the bachelorette party, and NO, it's not a party for me :) I have a feeling I might be the only one at the gym in Vegas as well.
Has anyone else been on a cruise or running while on a boat?? Hope everyone is having a great week! More blogging to come next week.....Happy running :)
