Bienvenido A Miami!

My mom just completed her 36th half-marathon.

36. Thirty-six. th-ir-ty si-x. 三十六。

Obviously, I come from a crazy brood. The cool thing for me in my family's running obsessiveness is that I get to travel to awesome places!

This past weekend my parents loaded up the car and we drove 5 hours south to Miami!

The weather was brilliant - 70 degrees. Blue sky. Stars at night. Ocean as far as you can see from the hotel window. Friendly people. Orderly traffic on the interstate. I love America.

The best part of the trip for me was getting to see my old pengyou (friend) Patty! We were roommates in California at the start of grad school and lived across the hall from each other the first year in China. She's a workin' woman now in Miami and was able to move her schedule around so we could catch up for a few hours. What a joy.

Have a look for yourself:

Congrats to my mom the running rockstar! And yay for blue sky and old friends.

walk slow. xoxo.
