So really, what have I been doing? Well for one, being lazy!!! Shame on me. I should be writing on my blog on a regular basis. So this is my promise to my readers to get more posts on a regular basis. It appears that my last post was in September and let me catch you up on where I have been since and where I plan to go in the near future. I will post more details on these visits over the next few weeks.
One of my goals was to visit Fenway Park in it's 100th year of operation. I did not get the chance to attend a game during that year, but I did have the opportunity to get a guided tour of the park, which was much more fun for me rather than sitting through a game.

October brought a chance to make a quick weekend visit to New York City. The hotel that we were staying at has a view right into the construction site for the new World Trade Center and access to the 9/11 Memorial.

In November I visited one of my favorite cities, Chicago. What can I say about Chicago other than fun, fun, fun. Where else can you get great food and on the cheap? Chicago is home to the original Pizzeria Uno, for which I still have yet to try. One should never miss the Art Institute of Chicago, located near Grant and Millennium Parks. Some of the most famous works of art are housed there, not to mention that you need a week to see the entire museum.

Don't forget to get a great view from atop the world famous Willis Tower. Wait, you say you have never heard of the Willis Tower? Well perhaps you may know it better as its former name, The Sears Tower.

January is where things get crazy, or rather "Goofy." Yes it is official, you can call me Goofy, I completed the Goofy Challenge which is an event held annually at Walt Disney World near Orlando, FL. The "Goofy" combines a 1/2 Marathon run on a Saturday and a Full Marathon on Sunday for a total of 39.3 miles combined. But really, who can say that they have been to all four Walt Disney World theme parks in about than 6 hours time including a quick ride on Expedition Everest. (To those die hard Disney fans, I know you have.)

So after I go to Disney in January what would my next trip in March be....? You guessed it, another trip to Walt Disney World he he he. This time to enjoy all that the parks have to offer, and not to just run through them.

What future trips do you have to look forward? July will be my company trip to Mount Washington, New Hampshire and August will be my trip to California for the Disneyland Half Marathon.
Still have a lot of places to go. Stay tuned for more details on the above trips, some of my past trips, and those to come.
