Started the month with a marathon #DNF.  However after 2 late race additions & tomorrow’s 26.2 mile trek in Rhode Island, October’s shaping up to be one of my strongest.  On track for a third 200+ mile month.

Friday night flight to New England.  Started Saturday admiring fall colour, spent the afternoon beachcombing.

As many times I’ve started my weekends in New Hampshire, you’d think I’d run out of new adventures.  Breakfast at a local sugar house?  FAAANNNTASTIC idea! (thanks Stephen)  pancake of the month or stuffed French toast?  cinnamon rolls or donut holes?  So many choices.  HUGE gift store – every imaginable use of maple sugar.  Sasquatch – yep, he’s there too.

Parker’s Maple Barn in rural Mason NH.  Add to your must-do list, well-worth the country drive.

Quick hour thru Massachusetts – cut right thru the middle, Worcester to Woonsocket.  I-95 to Providence, Highway 4 past URI (state uni), hugged the coast to ‘Poor Man’s Newport’: Narragansett RI.  One of my favourite NE haunts – LOVE LOVE this place.

Hotel check-in, marathon bib pick-up.  Check, done.  Spent remaining daylight walking the Bay.

Coast Guard House to Town Beach, North Beach Pavilion to Pettaquamscutt River (where the Narrows empties into the Atlantic).  Cool overcast day.  Neither I nor the gulls seemed to mind ‘jacket weather’.  Watched a local ocean-cast for bluefish.  New England LOVE.

Early to bed, early to rise…but little sleep this nite.  TV trapped/Halloween [movie] marathon.  Cut it off after Halloween 2…just not the same without Jamie Lee Curtis.  PLUS got my own Halloween marathon scheduled in the a.m.  🙂
