As you read this I’m most likely already on my way to San Juan, Puerto Rico for 5 days in the sun! After that, I’m headed to Tampa, Florida to visit family for a few days. You can probably imagine how excited I am to get out of the Chicago winter that will never end and to somewhere warm and sunny. I promise I won’t even complain about the humidity!
I’ve gotten pretty good at packing over the past two years (this blog has helped a lot with that!) but for some reason this trip was really throwing me off. I made a conscious decision not to plan every second of our trip and instead have a few ideas of things we could do and decide when we got there. However, this made packing a bit difficult since I wasn’t sure exactly what activities I’d need to be ready for.
So, instead, I stuck to a simple blue, green and black color palate (note: that tank in the top left? I do not own it but I really, really want to. I just chose it because I couldn’t find a good representation of the tank top I am bringing) with five tank tops, one dress, three pairs of shorts, two pairs of jeans, and two cardigans.
Of course, we can’t forget the reason we’re going to San Juan in the first place: so I can run the Puerto Rico Half Marathon! I won the race entry (but not the trip; don’t get too jealous) from Swirlgear so I’m totally going to represent them while I’m enjoying paradise.
Also, while I’m visiting family I can do laundry so if I have the desire to rewear something I can wash it when I get to Tampa.
Finally, for those of you like lists, here’s the basics of what I’m bringing in list form!
