Camino adventure time!…

Apr, 18, 2019

Super excited for my next adventure. It’s almost a re-do. I’m heading to the Camino Primitivo, a trail from Oviedo to Santiago de Compostela in the north of Spain. The Primitivo is one of many pilgrimages across Europe. I completed the Camino Frances a few years ago. Here’s a link to that a leg of that journey if you’re interested.

The Primitivo is the oldest and a more traditional route. The route travels through mountains and small towns then joins the last bit of the Camino Frances. I leave the second week of May!

Currently, I’m practicing my inner nerd/obsessive self by making packing lists and finding my old gear. So far I’ve dug up a bluetooth keyboard, packing cubes and multiple travel size lotions.

Why go run/hike almost 200 miles??? Right after a marathon coming up May 5??? I have three reasons.

  1. I’m excited for the race but need something to keep me running beyond that date.
  2. I’ll be writing along the way, posting tons of pics and thanks to Laura…I’ll write an article for gulp….submission. More on that to come.
  3. I love Spanish food.

Yep, I’m doing this!!! I’m going to Spain to try out a fantasy career. Run, hike, write, travel and eat my way along a lovely mountain trail.

So, insert my face on this happy hiker come mid May!

I love feeling good. I'm on a mission to feel well and sharing that info with you along the way.
