bests.


best pre-run warm up...
boogie boarding in atlantic ocean - which is currently my front yard.

best ice bath after 11 mile run ...
dip in icy atlantic - running clothes and all.

best destination run ....
this place. the very same place where about 16 years ago you realized the guy you were dating was a total keeper. and you married him. and now you run there & meet him and your 3 kids for breakfast.

best pit stop post 37 mile bike ride...
cousins' surf shop where they hand out red bulls like they are candy.

best 37 mile bike ride ever ...
the one we did the other day that was so quintessentially new england,
we half expected someone to just hand us a lobster roll as we passed by.

best place in the world to run ....
right here. right now.

pictures coming soon ...

(evoking Homer):

"Mmmmmm.... Lobster Roll."

To show you how goofy I am, about a month ago I tell my husband, "I know what we're going to have for lunch on August 3" (that's the day our training run will be a full marathon): Lobster Rolls! I'm a transplanted New Englander, and we spent every summer at our cottage in Maine. Unfortunately you can't get the proper hot dog rolls here on the West Coast, but I think I've found ones that can work.

So happy to hear you're enjoying your vacation!

Yes, I had one of those places too! Used to run in the heat of mid-day, out on the dirt roads, along the rr tracks, and watch all the weirdos in junk cars, with no teeth, trolling along with their cigarettes hanging out of their mouths, sipping on the bottle of beer "hidden" in the brown paper bag, and then go jump in the lake fully dressed. It was like I would combust if I didn't cool off right then!
