road trip to maine



most of today was spent on the road to freeport, maine, with a short stop in portland. after a 4 mile run this morning, i packed my stuff and pat drove me over to emmy's. we were on the road just before 11 and reached portland just after 3:30.



packet pick-up, at the maine running company, was conveniently located across the street from . . . .



the great lost bear! i've actually had a few beers here the couple of times that i ran the back cove 5k races when we vacationed in maine!



so couldn't pass up the opportunity to show emmy what a great selection they had to offer. i'm drinking an allagash cask conditioned number 4 and emmy is having the daily special, a leinenkugel's sunset wheat!


wayne, anthony, eddie, emmy, and meredith arriving at the super eight. we were just heading over to gritty's to say hi to staci, adam and sarah - before a trip to shaw's supermarket for last minute supplies.
i just requested a 4:30 wake-up call from the front desk. tomorrow the 50 miler goes off at 6 - so after a quick shower, time to call it a day.

thanks dawn! i skipped the weston race - b/c it was just to far to drive back and forth, then get on road to maine. awesome that you did another weekend triple!!!

I went to a fancy-schmancy dinner a few weeks ago where every course was paired with wine, except one, which was paired with Allagash. SO GOOD! I'm not usually a beer fan but it was awesome.
