My July stats were pretty awesome - of course I have more time in the summer and it shows.
Running - 88.5 miles
Biking - 401 miles
Swimming - 8600 yards
Races - 5
Saturday my husband and I took a day trip just to play and be tourists in our own state. We headed to Newport which is basically on the Canadian border in the northeast part of the state. We hadn't been in years (never together) and it was time to change that. Newport is a gem even on a cloudy not so great day. Lake Memphramagog which is a huge lake is in Newport. We went to the boathouse and walked along the lake on a very nice walking path.

A very nice walking path.

We had also talked about working on our Vermont Breweries card. There was one in Newport so since we had driven all this way we looked for it. And looked and looked and looked. We were actually on our way back when my husband spotted a sign. Then we had to go up this dirt road - not really right on the beaten path. But we got there and had a few samples and got our cards stamped. My favorite was Skinny Bitch - named after the owner's dog if you are wondering.
We tried to find Rock Art next. It seemed like we had clear directions but nope. No luck. We were now on our way to find a place to eat when again - the husband not I - spotted a brewery sign and right up the road was The Alchemist. More samples, another stamp.
We found a great place to end the day with a fantastic burger. While we were driving I asked my husband the question from my last post - name 3 places you would want to live. He gave it very serious thought- as if we had won the lottery and were about to purchase a house in said place - and came up with two. He didn't know my choices. He mentioned Pennsylvania and Ohio. If you read mine I came up with two in the PNW and the other was Maine. I guess for the sake of our marriage we better stay put right where we are. Good thing we both like Vermont.
