Cabo Recap.

After a great trip to Cabo and fun in the Sun I must say it's always good to be back home! Again, the trip down to Cabo was for a friends wedding on the beach, which turned out to be really nice and romantic and am happy for them.

Wednesday when we left it was bright and early and by 7am we were eating breakfast in LA waiting till 11:30am for the flight to Cabo, the long layover sucked but so be it. Once on the plane to Cabo we quickly ordered up some drinks, compliments of a patient of mine that gave us drink coupons, as he is a flight attendant. Soon we were close to Cabo and I quickly noticed from the sky that the land was very dry and desert like and thought we just made a big circle and were landing in Vegas!! haha! After we cleared the long slow customs line we proceeded to go to our waiting shuttle van.

Now we were strictly instructed in email and by phone when we arranged our transportation to proceed though the baggage clam area to outside, Do Not Stop and let anyone say they are with transportation company, as they are NOT! They will be TimeShare people who will act like they are your transportation and will get you to there desk and try and make deals with you for activities. SOOOOOO, we came out of transportation and I quickly spotted the liars and quickly told them no, I am with GreyLine and the guy practically grabbed me and said yes, he was the transportation. I said No your not and he said yes, I will take you to your hotel, just check in right here and he will get you the shuttle. (I totally forgot about what they said, Don't Stop!! and I stopped) This next guy was really a fast talker and other than bypassing the transportation stuff he proceeded quickly to the I have free tickets to this and that and I then caught on he wasn't our guy. I told him no and matter of fact, I had just met this lady on the plane, hahaha!! So we walked off and went around the corner and here was guy #2!! He said, hey you are with GreyLine, I said yes, but I am not interested. He said, no I am not a timeshare, those guys are the liars, I am the real deal. (again, forgetting what I was told) I didn't stop walking but I said Oh Okay which way do we go? He said How long are you in town? and slowed his walking pace. I said not long enough and realized he was Liar #2, but by this time I saw the outside doors and the REAL guy with GreyLine holding the sign. We continued to walk away from liar #2 and finally got to the correct transportation guy. So Moral of the story..!! if you ever go to CABO, walk completely outside to get your transportation as they are not allowed inside the airport, only the Liars are!

We got to our Hotel and got settled in and I ordered room service. We ate and then hit the pool and started drinking. We then went to dinner and to bed as it was a long day. The next morning, Thursday, we had breakfast and checked into a few activities and was offered a good deal on ZipLining if we went to a timeshare presentation downtown. We took the deal b/c we wanted to see the downtown area, get a deal on zip-line and it wouldn't cost us only time and telling the sellers No. The sister property we saw was a good deal, nice hotel-timeshare and great location. Again, I had to tell the sellers no like 8 times but although they were nice in respecting the No's they kept trying politely. Finally, they let us go and we went back to our hotel and hit the pool and more drinks.

The next couple of days was a lot of fun in the sun, drinks, food and of course the wedding. The Zip-Line adventure was pretty fun.

We went on Saturday morning to zip-line with 2 other couples from our hotel and met up with about 8 other couples once there. We got instructions and we were quickly off on the zip lines. Overall there were 8 lines. There was some pretty strong hiking trails/stairs to get from line to line and it was Hot in the canyon. The harness gear was good quality, good condition and the safety gear was good. The lines were in pretty good safety conditions and anchored well. I did not think for one minute or question our safety once I saw everything. It took about 3 hours to complete all the lines and by noon it was really hot!! I was glad to be done but it did go by too fast. The last zip line was approx. 2700 feet and reached speeds of 50mph!! It was fast and fun!!!!!! Check out the pictures of us!!

Sunday we just had breakfast in your room and got ready to head back home. Now I did manage to get two runs of 5 miles each on Thursday and Friday and the hiking part of the canyon on Saturday but that's about all the workout I got.

Monday was just a re-settle in day and was actually a schedule day off, not really sure why I deserved one but I took it and today, I will run later tonight. The toe is feel better but then again I have not run at any distance to test it so I will see how the week progresses. I guess I just needed a little down time on the legs following last weekends back to back runs.
