It’s Friday so I am linking up with three DC area bloggers Mar at Mar On the Run, Cynthia at You Signed Up For What?! and Courtney from Eat Pray Run, DC . Anyone can join with their own Friday Five post (yes, it must be a Friday Five!!) They encourage you to visit other blogs on the linkup, comment, share and engage!
I had my first Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte and I go back to working next Wednesday so it feels like summer is over.
My Friday Topic is Five Best Things About This Summer.
I won’t say “Not Working” because it is very stressful being unemployed with no idea when your next paycheck will arrive not to mention health care…
1. Rediscovering Tennis
Once I started running, I pretty much lost interest in tennis. I played only once a week and on tennis vacations. Well, this summer, I played outdoors a lot. My tennis improved. But the best thing was that I played in four different groups and met some awesome ladies.2. Discovering Hiking
I never really hiked before. I didn’t have the time nor the confidence to do so. But this summer I fought my fears and did a few solo hikes. The more hikes I did, the more confident I got and the more I enjoyed it.
3. Finding a New Running Friend
I used to run mostly alone. Sometimes Judy & I could fit in a run together (but mostly in the winter) and occasionally I would run with Barbara. Well, I met Alyssa on FB and since she is new the area, she was glad to have a running partner. Since we met in June, we have run once a week together.4. Visiting NYC
Love love love NYC. I have been fortunate to find different people to help me feed my addiction.
My last summer trip will be on Tuesday to see Anna (from Russia.) 5. Running and Boating along and on Lake George
Said to be the “Queen” of all lakes. I love Lake George. I’ve run one race on either side of the lake and one in the village.
I am also lucky enough to have a boat so I can hang out on the lake with my hubby and our boating friends. Honorable Mention: Watching the Olympics
Happy Running! What did you like best about this summer?
