5 things I did this summer.
Except we seriously didn’t do anything this summer. Well, nothing super fun anyway. Just the same old, same old, for the most part.
Ran with USAFit Albany
For the fourth year. Yes, you pay to run with this group. And for the last two summers I’ve run with the same woman, off and on. Maybe we’ll get to the point where we run together without the group. But a group makes everything better.
It gets lonely (and cold, and gray, and hard) running here during the winter.
Ran Firecracker4 for the second time
Not my 4 mile PR, but a PR for that particular course (great cool weather really helped). I do love running on holidays. There’s just something so festive about it.
Ran with Darlene Off & On
Darlene from My First 5k & More & I first met in real life n the spring of 2014. This year we began to run together every once in a while. Longer evenings mean more time to run!
Explored the flavors at Guptils
Guptils is one of our local ice cream joints. Their ice cream is good, but I think the biggest draw for me is all the flavors.
As I’ve mentioned, I love to try stuff. I think we’ve gone more than we ever have this year. I still haven’t worked my way through all the new flavors . . . and tomorrow is 10 miles; I’m thinking brownie sundae.
Went for afternoon tea
For the first time. With a friend. It was really, really good and I have to admit I keep thinking about it. Carb loading at it’s best.
Is it sad that two of my five things I did this summer revolved around food and the rest is running?
Since we do racecations for me and I don’t enjoy halfs during the summer, not to mention my husband doesn’t like crowds, we tend to be at home in the summer. We had an awesome vacation this winter (3 states in 10 days, although 2 of those were family related but still it got us away from winter) and we are planning some fall trips. But I still get green looking at everyone’s fun times at the beach!
When is your favorite time to vacation?
