I’m back in the city (for my last week) after a whirlwind trip to Rhode Island. Within 48 hours I rode a subway, a bus, an Uber, two boats, a car, a train and a taxi. All I’m missing is a plane, which I’ll cover next week. Because I’m exhausted, I’ll let the pictures from my marvelous weekend do most of the talking.
Win: FINALLY meeting Sarah! It was a short but sweet visit so we made the most of it with non-stop talking on her boat and then kayaking. She’s the sweetest.
Win: Going on a sunset boat cruise in Newport on the most beautiful summer evening. Bonus win: getting to see a bunch of my family :)
Win: Finishing Born to Run (finally) and napping twice on Saturday. I take pre-race resting VERY seriously.
Win: Eating this picture-perfect meal made by my cousin. I helped with the zoodles (made with mashed avocado) but she grilled salmon burgers, peaches and beets. If she could cook for me everyday that would be great, thanks.
Win: Running the Narragansett Bay Half in a surprisingly decent (for me) time, especially considering the dreadful heat. Summer finally decided to show up in the Northeast, of course on the wrong day. Final time: 1:49:04. Full recap tomorrow.
Win: Going to bed at 8 p.m. Sunday night. Well, that’s the plan as I’m writing this before that time on Sunday night. After an early wake-up call, a race in the heat, traveling and not napping on the train (who am I?), I’ll consider this a major win.
