Enjoying summertime

Monday, August 19, 2019

It has been a while since I posted.  Of course, I feel guilty about this because a "good" blogger posts on a regular basis.  When you don't see me much on the blog, that is because I am out living life in a big way.  This month has been no different.  Most of my time outside work as been spent outside.  I had the London Triathlon (race report coming soon!) and then was in the USA for a week visiting family and friends before a week-long course in Bar Harbor, Maine.  I had never been to that part of Maine before and highly recommend for those who also love the great outdoors.

The sun was shining something fierce on the East Coast during our stay and I have happily developed a slight tan despite wearing sunscreen every day.  My time was spent hiking up mountains, swimming in lakes, exploring American history, shopping at Goodwill (an American charity shop) and eating a lot of donuts.  The #augustrunstreak has been a success so far too.  Having an aim of just one mile a day made it very achievable and dare I say, fun.  Check out my Strava profile to see the places I explored on foot.

I am now back in London, feeling refreshed and excited about the things to come.  My list of blog posts to write is long and there are a few more adventures I have booked in that need some additional planning.  Somehow, I will find the time as all of these things make me happy.  I am also re-branding and can't wait for you to see the fantastic design ThinkMarsh Studio has come up with.

As my tan starts to fade, I will be thinking fondly of the good times I had in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Maine this summer.  Hopefully you were able to follow the highlights of each location on Facebook and Instagram.  If there is anything in particular from these trips you would like me to write about, please leave a comment below and I will do my best to get an answer up by September.
