Meads Lane

She asked me last night if we could drive over to Vermont for the fall colors. We drove through Route 9 to Wilmington and went home with more reasons to come back than I can remember.

..also, just discovered the hashtag #outsideisfree. I have too many blogs on my dash but I just found a few more to follow.

I wasn’t in the mood for a run but was itching to do something today. I thought the 1hr30min bike ride to Thacher park would shake off whatever it was (is?) giving me the bad vibes.

I tried running at some flat stretches of trail but it was mostly fast hiking. All in all, I recorded 5.5km in Strava before I stopped the track, sat for a while, then hiked back the last ~1km back to my Miyata for the ride back home.

Today was a perfect day out so at least I didn’t waste it, but there’s this nagging feeling that I should have HTFU’d. That I’ll sleep better tonight if I did.

I took her on a few day hikes so the next step would be an overnighter. I was planning to camp right out of the car or a short bikecamping trip to ease her into it but she wants to do Greylock.haha

Truth is, I wanted to do some easy (short + near) camping trips first for my comfort not hers. Maybe it’s just in my head, but going solo or with a group feels easier than camping out with your SO.

Hope I find some good gear rentals here in Albany.

It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!"

A short run around Peebles Island

We went for a few short hikes, took her to a run with the Albany Running Exchange then she caught the trail running bug. (I think).
