It is no secret that sometimes Matt and I spread ourselves too thin. However, this isn’t anything different from most of our friend, especially those who live in New York City. During August this was definitely to case.
The weekend after Matt’s Ironman, we took a trip up to Cape Cod to visit with some of Matt’s high school buddies. It was an awesome weekend and we all left making a pact that we would “make it an annual thing.” I’ve always wanted to be those people who got together with their friends every year and did something awesome. Unfortunately, when we were growing up, swimming limited a lot of vacations/trips that we could take as a family as recently, wedding have seemed to dominate our social calendars. I am really hoping that we make the time for this. These are people I want to have in my life for many years to come and, let’s face it, an excuse to visit Red Sox Nation and stay in this incredible house isn’t a bad deal.
We returned to work the next week, relaxed from our weekend and feeling a little more in touch with our New England roots.
The start of my week was pretty typical:
Monday – work then spinning with the Robin Hood marathon team
Tuesday – work then team run in Central Park with the marathon team
Wednesday – work then errands after work that included a trip to lululemon some new clothes for our trip!
Thursday Matt and I went to a charity event in support of the Cancer Research Institute. One of our friends is a member of the young philanthropic council and it is a great organization to support.
It was a lot of fun but we got home late that night and a result, we started packing for our 10 day trip at 7am on Friday. We weren’t flying out till Friday evening but we both had to work, which meant we had to get ready for work and pack in about 1 hour. Here’s a visual of what that looked like.
I’d argue that it looks like one of us handled this challenge a little better.
