Two quick notes:
1. I decided that I may not run much for the remainder of the year, depending on my stupid leg/hip. I have two fun holiday-themed races coming up and, other than those, I may limit my running to allow better healing of my issues and during that time I’ll focus on strength.
2. Yesterday, Tara and I headed to Newport for a helicopter tour of the Newport Mansions. We received a generous early Christmas present from one of her grandmothers for the two of us to take the tour and it needed to be used by a certain date in December, so we figured no time like the present since we had an “open” weekend. What was supposed to just be a trip down there for the helicopter ride turned into an entire outing while we were there. We did the helicopter tour, a tour of Fort Adams, lunch at O’Brien’s Pub, dessert at the Newport Cookie Company, walked around the shops on Thames Street, sunset at Easton’s Beach and then a tour of The Breakers mansion that we flew over earlier in the day. FYI – there are no pics of the inside of the mansion because they are not allowed. It was crazy though! So much fun was had that I didn’t want our adventure date to end! Enjoy some pics!
