08/09/2014-08/23/2014 wrapping up the last 2 weeks

Pirate's Cove, Yarmouth, Ma.
I just finished up the best two weeks of the year.  Cape Cod vacation 2014 was everything I waited the whole year for and more.  We ate lost of ice cream, went to the beach a lot, I ate seafood, and made a ton of memories.  Every year, vacation ends up being the most difficult time for me in regards to running.  There are just so many things I would rather be doing with Maura and the kids (we had ice cream at 5 different places in 2 weeks!).  

The funny thing is, in the past I would stress about not running.  I would think about it constantly.  However, this year I let it go and enjoyed myself, knowing that I could kick it into gear when I got home.

I was able to get some biking in on most days though as I would drop Maura and the kids at the beach, drive back to the house, then bike down so we didn't have to lock into a beach pass for the car.  Then when we were ready to wrap it up, I rode back to the house and got the car to pick them up in.  It was a nice 1.5-2.0 mile ride each way so I got to stretch the legs.  I also did some riding sporadically in the afternoon with the kids.  

Time to get after it and finally decide on some races!
