As I mentioned last week, this past weekend was to be a NO RACE, NO BOATING weekend.
Racing and boating are my two most favorite things to do but nevertheless, I had a great weekend.
I drove up North to my friend’s house in Chestertown on the Schroon River where my tennis friends would be gathering.
When we got there Saturday morning, the courts were wet from Friday night’s rain.
Luckily, the courts dried quickly and we were able to play. There were 12 of us and we played for hours just rotating partners.
After tennis, we had lunch and some of us went for a walk.
The rest of the afternoon was spent reading, knitting, chatting and catching up. Then we went out to a local restaurant for a late dinner.
Many of the ladies went home that night so there was enough room for me to sleep over (instead of sleeping on my boat.)
I got up early Sunday morning in order to squeeze in a run before tennis.
And it was the best one I’ve had in a long time.
The weather was PERFECT – not too warm, no humidity and blue skies.
I started on my usual route with a few detours. But rather than running to Brant Lake as I did the last time I was here, I continued North running along the river. I actually felt like I could run forever but I had to get back since some of the women were probably waiting to play tennis.I worked up an appetite after 5 miles and had breakfast #2 (blueberry french toast & bacon) before heading back to the tennis courts.
It was only 4 of us this time but we had a blast.
We played 3 set and the last one ended in a tie. So we celebrated by going out for ice cream (of course.)
The rest of the afternoon was spent with a drive to Brant lake and some reading & relaxing before I drove to the marina to meet my hubby for dinner. (He had spent the weekend on the boat with his guy friends.)
Not my usual summer weekend but it certainly was enjoyable.
Happy Running! How was your weekend?
