FOMO — I would be lying if I said I never experience this… I have a hard time saying no and love being a part of the action and living for experience.
Crazy enough, Eventbrite introduced me to GOMO and of course I became intrigued! Going Out More Often sounds right up my alley and so easy if you take the time to do a little searching & planning. Need a race to do for race-cation? Eventbrite. Favorite concert just an hour away? Eventbrite. Have your own event to plan? Eventbrite. Yes…you read that right! You can create your own event with Eventbrite — promote — sell tickets — make it happen!
Now let’s combine it all — pick a race, pick a concert — book it & purchase it via Eventbrite — take a road trip and make it a fun weekend! One of my favorite people in the world is moving across the world and I took a long weekend to visit before her departure. It had been some time since I took a road trip so I headed Jacksonville for the weekend. My college roomie and I had a great weekend exploring her little island and visiting her favorite spots before she headed North before going to Guam.
Since this was my first road trip in a bit…here are a few tips for the actual trip and for once you get there:
keep it smart, pick a spot 2-3 hours away. Of course, dependent on where your destination is, but picking a spot a couple hours away can make your trip stay within one tank of gas — thus, keeping your costs in check. I like to use Eventbrite & Stay.com to find fun stuff to do!
for your road trip, bring snacks & water for the road. I made sure to bring my big water bottle full and a variety of snacks — a little salty & a little sweet. I brought along Lorissa’s Kitchen — flavor packed, gluten free jerky.
need a break, hit up Starbucks. And no, I’m not saying this because I’m 99% fueled by the tasty mermaid coffee — it’s more than just caffeine. Stop in, grab a tall drink and stretch your legs. Plus, you know you will have a nice restroom to use too.
once you’re there, take in the sights — eat somewhere new. This one is a gimme… Do a little research, find where the locals hang, and enjoy!
Wanna join me for some GOMO action yet?? These next couple weeks, I challenge you to pick a spot, find an event or find a race to make Going Out More Often happen! So…where ya gonna go?
Don’t forget about the Fit Foodie Race Weekend happening this weekend in Downtown Tampa. I want you to be there too and have a few race entries to giveaway, enter here!
