The sun may be shining where you are today but don’t delay! Southwest Airlines is having the most amazing low fares for Fall Travel! Last week I was eyeing ticket prices from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and the price per each roundtrip ticket was in the $375 range. I just purchased the same preferred dates and times for $137.50 roundtrip INCLUSIVE of tax, fees & baggage. I LOVE a great deal and was so excited that I booked a second trip for December.
Southwest Airlines has direct flights from several cities to Southwest Florida International Airport (airport code RSW) which is a mere 28 mile from Hilton Naples Hotel.  Coincidentally, Hilton Naples is offering some great guest room rates as well. 

My Travel Tip of the Day: Book your guest room reservations at the Hilton Naples with a check in on Saturday or Sunday and you can save up to $20 off your guest room rate**

Don’t delay and book your next getaway to the Hilton Naples. Offer on sale ends Friday, August 24thand it is for travel from August 24, 2012 through February 2013.

** not guaranteed and subject to availability at time of booking.

Run Your Own Race in Naples FL

The triumph of the Olympics in London and the story I read in the Naples Daily News about the Endurance Sisterhood this past weekend have motivated me to get back on track to meet my own fitness goals. I love participating in 5K events and Naples has plenty of them coming up. There is something about running your own race among others gathered together for an important cause.  My goal isn’t to out run anyone, just to see if I can beat my own personal times – oh, and I love collecting the t-shirts.

An injury, new child and demands of life have taken over my running schedule the past few years. The stories swirling around in the media have me excited to train for my first 5k in over two years.  I am celebrating my 40th birthday in New Hampshire next month and while there, I will again strive to finish a 5k. With no times in mind I look forward to once again experiencing the thrill of seeing the time clock as I cross the finish line.

Run Your Own Race in Naples FL
My new focus has added more fitness events on my personal calendar which I am sharing for those fitness enthusiasts visiting Naples. A great resource for race and fitness events in the area is the Gulf Coast Runners Club.  If you are a guest of the Hilton Naples Hotel, ask our Concierge or front desk about great places to run in our neighborhood. And the beach is always a treat to run on. 

See you at the finish line!
