NBTR: Out!

I've got Big Plans for next week people.

First, I rented a car, because I don't trust my car as far as I can throw it. Renting a car involved finding the cheapest one, and checking 20,000 web sites and the whole thing was hair raising.

Next: On Sunday I will load up the car with bike, wetsuit, various electronic gizmos and chargers, yoga mat, running shoes, bike shoes, bathing suit, workout clothes, (and maybe some other stuff to wear...do people actually take all this crap on a PLANE when they travel??) and drive to my hometown, New Haven, for a reunion with an old high school friend, plus visit all my old haunts, maybe go back to my high school and terrorize the nuns, and visit my brother for the first time ever.

Tuesday night: Drive to .... CAPE COD!!! Vacation starts!! I'll be visiting partying with my college roommate, she of Boston Marathon photography fame. I found Cape Cod Athletic Club, and I hope I can join them for track, open water swim, maybe a run or two. Lots of laying around doing nothing. Possibly a trip to Martha's vineyard. Let's see how much I can pack into four days. Be afraid Renee, be very afraid.

Saturday: Drive to NYC! Meet friends, tool around town, hopefully find some place to stay Saturday night, the chairs on Times Square if all else fails,



and on

Sunday: Cheer friends on at NYC Triathlon!

Whee.

Oh, and also? Fall in love and lose 10 lbs.

Drive home Sunday night.

Return to work renewed and rejuvenated!

That, or move to Maine.

Sounds like you're going to have a great vacation. I don't know what part of the Cape you're staying in, but if it's the Upper Cape, be sure to try and make the Friday Night 5M run in Falmouth. Very casual, very nice course. They start at the Falmouth Town Square at 5:30 p.m. Then head with everyone to a nearby bar afterward. Damn, I miss that place.

Have fun, Jeanne. Be sure to check out the Rail Trail if you want a nice paved path to do some distance running on. I think it starts in West Dennis and goes all the way to the tip of the cape.

Gosh, if I was in RI you could stop and play with us ... but we ewon't be there for another two weeks.

P.S. Golf is better than cricket.

Sounds like a great week! I had to laugh at the "lose ten pounds." I have "lose 5 pounds by July 31" on my daily calendar. So far it just makes me hungrier. I think the "fall in love" goal is doable, tho. :-)

Holy cow, busy busy bumble bee! Enjoy your vacation!

Jade Lady said...

Now, that sounds like some fun! I've never gone to a reunion - enjoy yourself!

Janice said...

jealous - so jealous. My sister is on Nantucket right now and you are on the Cape and I am here with sore glutes. Wah!

Have fun and if the NYC triathlon looks like the most fun a person can have swimming, riding and running let's do it next year!
