Running in Europe & My Mom / by Sonya Paclob

The only way to enjoy vacation with my mom is to travel with her church company. Last year, we went to Italy and it was a small group of about 25. This year, it was about 58 in total. It was a big group and traveling with that many people can be quite a challenge. I had to get away for a little and the only way I can do so is running. Almost everyday for 14 days, I woke up in a new location and jogged around the block. Yes, I admit it was scary, but I knew I would never run the streets ever again. I was motivated to get up and move. I did get in trouble from my my mom, but hey - that's my mom.
