I enjoy running... actually I love running because I love to eat!
Upcoming in 2013 marathons will be the Big Sur marathon, Seattle Marathon and Portland Marathon. in 2012, I ran Nashville, San Francisco and Chicago- for all three marathons I booked my stay through airbnb.com... the hosts were all great and so much more comfortable than hotels!
me as a guest: i am an minimalist. i'm able to pull off weekend trips in a carry-on size suitcase.... as it keeps me from doing too much shopping apart of souvenir shopping :)
