The weekend started with an hour and half drive to Poughkeepsie to meet my college BFF.
It was cloudy and chilly but the foliage was so pretty that we didn’t mind.
We started by walking over the Walkway Bridge. It is the longest pedestrian bridge in the world.
It goes over the Hudson River and is about 1.5 miles long.
After we walked over the bridge, we continued on the Hudson Valley Rail Trail.
It went for about 4 miles and also was very scenic.
We turned around and on the way back, we veered of the trail to have lunch in the town of Highland.
Soup, salad and the dessert above.
The we continued back on the trail and over the bridge again.
The colors were even prettier on the way back.
11.5 miles walked for the day!!!
I really got lucky on Sunday.
I was supposed to take my mentee Amanda and her two sons to Ellms Family Farm for the day.
I wanted to run as well.
I got up early and it was raining. Then Amanda got called into work so I was able to wait to do my run.
I have been on our new rail trail but never gone to the end. I decided that today was the day.
I think I’ve found a new favorite place to run close to home. 7 miles done!
As soon as I finished, it started to rain again.
Then I found out that Amanda had to work the whole day.
I decided to take one of her sons, the 8 year old, to the farm.
We did have cider donuts & pick pumpkins (just forgot to take pics)
We were there for about 4 hours – exhausting but so much fun!
Happy Running! How was your weekend?
