Marathon Weekend

5 Nov

We drove up to Rhode Island on Saturday. We first stopped by to see Ben and Lauren’s little cutie. Karsten is supper cute and super tiny. It was a nice stop off because it totally took my mind off of the race. After some yummy pizza and some snuggle time he headed to Newport.
Once we arrived to the wonderful Howard Johnson’s the kids and Dave stayed in the hotel and I headed to get my bib and shirt. It was pretty easy! After returning we headed out to find a place to eat! Turns out the rest of Newport was looking for a place to eat. We tired to find some place yummy but everywhere had a long wait. Waiting for food with kids is the worst. We ended up going to subway! Although it wasn’t anything great I knew that it would be fine for a pre-race meal.
After subway we went back to the hotel. The kids got ready for bed and I of course got everything ready for the race.

I actually got a good night sleep and was ready for race day! The rest of the weekend was family time. We spent time eating, swimming, sight seeing, resting, and enjoying the wonderful fall weather at two different farms. You can read about the race here.

The weekend was so much fun and Dave is excited to do more of these little weekends away. So now I just need to figure out when our next weekend away will be so I can add more medals to go with these.
