I’m in Westport NY which is in the Adirondacks just north of Lake Placid. (Ironman country). It’s so beautiful here. I’m relaxing and enjoying sitting by the lake with Duncan.

happy, relaxed and kickin’ back

But of course I did go for a run earlier this morning. It started with a brisk 4.5 mile walk with the pooch and my friend Donna and her nieces. I then ran the same route right after. So a total of 9 miles. It’s extremely hilly here.

But the weather is beyond perfect and I enjoyed the extra effort. 🙂 Some scenery from my running route:

Aren’t vacations glorious? Heck even though its only a 48 hour trip it’s so worth it. My WOW for today. If you can get away even for a small amount of time don’t think twice….just DO IT!

Last night we had a lovely dinner and I made s’mores dip for dessert (sorry my photo didn’t come out). I follow this woman’s recipe. She’s got great photos of the dip there too! I also had some traditional s’mores too. You can never have enough melted chocolate with marshmallow and grahams.

s'mores! I also went the traditional route with these s'mores

We’re leaving in the morning. So sad. A few more pics of my trip…

Question: Going anywhere relaxing anytime soon? I highly recommend a little romp with nature!
