On today’s show, I’m running with Ken Weary. Ken and his wife took a run-cation of a lifetime to Guatemala as part of the Mayan Running Adventures, and decided they’d like to experience Guatemala for more than just a week.
After returning home, Ken and his wife spent about 6 months researching and planning, and decided they could pack up their kids and head to Guatemala. On our run, we talk a lot about the process of making a dramatic move like this, how the friends and family reacted, why there is no reason you can’t make a move like this if you really want to, and a whole lot more. Here are some of the highlights:
- A great Guatemalan half marathon, as well organized as most races in the US, for only $24 dollars.
- The process of taking the initial idea of moving to Guatemala to taking action and making it happen.
- Connecting with a network of Central American ex-pats to get questions answered.
- The transition from being in senior management to a stay at home dad while still doing some consulting work on the side.
- The process of adjusting from American life to Guatemalan life.
