Birthday Fun in the Finger Lakes

This post is brought to you by a copious amount of wine Another year older, another year wiser right?  This weekend was a joint birthday celebration for Drew and myself!  I setup this weekend for Drew’s birthday but booked it for my birthday weekend- a win win right?!  Heading to the Finger Lakes was perfect because it isn’t too far from home and there is wine, lots of wine. Friday We got a later start that we wanted- I swear having a puppy makes everything take ten times longer.  I cant imagine what its like having kids! We dropped off little Ubu at Drews parents and then it was time to hit the road.  But first we had to get some coffee and donuts.  Not just any donuts though, cider donuts (aka the only type of donut I like, yes Im a weirdo)! As we started driving Drew brought up […]

I honestly can’t say enough good things about the Lake Placid Classic, which has a 10K and Half Marathon option.  It is a small, well organized local race.  The swag itself indicated it was going to […]

Big George (Half Ironman) Recap

Well here it goes, first blog post. Hello to anyone out there reading, welcome to ADK Tri Girl! Figured I’d start off with a bang by recapping the Big George (Half Ironman) Triathlon that I completed last weekend.  I had decided earlier this year that this summer I was going to do a half ironman.  I had only done sprint triathlons before but decided this was my year.  I completed Tupper Lake Tinman as my first one in June and decided I really liked the distance and was crazy enough to sign up for another.  Big George was the obvious choice since it’s close to home (it takes place in Lake George) and my boyfriend (Drew) had already signed up for it. I hadn’t trained as much I would have liked leading up to it due to a busy summer social calendar but knew that with one under my belt […]
