You Know You're a Writer Who Runs [8 of 10]

When Half the Luggage is Packed Before You Actually Start Packing for Your Trip


When I realized that the only time I ever traveled was for running events, I knew I was a runner. I never said I was fast or rail-thin, but I do love to race! The goal of running is to feel good. Sometimes, it's to get a new PR. Other times, it's simply to get up and move, which consequently always makes me feel good.








Traveling for a 10k Race


You know you're a runner when your running clothes and shoes take up half your suitcase on trips!

One of my favorite races (aside from charity races that promote literacy) is the Cooper River Bridge Run - the largest 10k foot race this side of the Mississippi.

I've even traveled 12 hours in a car just to participate in an 8-mile trail race. We only stayed for 2 to 3 nights. Of course, I stayed with my sister, but my bags were packed with running gear! LOL.

Heading to a Retreat or a Weekend Writing Conference


You know you're a writer when your books, notebooks, and laptop take up [the other] half of your suitcase on trips!

Yes, we writers love to travel for races and writing events. It's a wonder we have any room left in our luggage for regular clothes!

I imagine the day when I'll have a whole BOX full of books to sell at a conference! Until then, I'll keep going to conferences and retreats. Heck, even after that day comes, I'll still continue attending writing retreats and conferences.

SOOO... the next time you travel, be sure to pack your bags (with running gear and writing tools). And try to save a little room for a pair of jeans and your toiletries.

Until next time...

Keep on keepin' on!
