Life in the Fast Lane
One day in early June, Tracy learned to accept bad news with good. She was hit by a driver going through a red light. Thankfully, Tracy wasn’t seriously hurt and had two weeks to get in shape before her trip to Iceland.
As an aside, Matt Poort at PV&V Insurance and Novex were excellent in dealing with my claim. How often can you say that?
From Tracy’s Travel Journal: Later in June, our trip to Iceland started with the Suzuki Midnight run (starts at 9 pm). I had to modify my run from the half marathon distance to the 5k distance but totally thrilled that I could run three weeks after my accident. Beautiful course http://www.marathon.is/midnight-run.
I’m not sure exactly why every vacation has to include a race, but there you go. It’s so good for the soul!
Incredible vistas, beautiful scenery, stunning waterfalls and vastly different topography. We travelled the entire ring road and know where we would like to go when we come back.
Interesting tidbit, Sid’s mother was a Canadian born and of Iceland decent. Sid’s great-great grandfather emigrated from Iceland in 1875 from Patreksfjörður.
We visited the original homestead and visited with relatives along the ring road. Everyone is related in Iceland! Population is only 330,000 with 60% of the population living in Reykjavík.
We celebrated granddaughter Mila’s Christening.
She’s 6 months old and getting cuter by the minute, don’t you think?
