I kicked things off at Gillette Stadium with the Pavement Pack, where we completed our Finish at the 50 10 k. The Patriots laid out a warm welcome complete with my jumbo-tron debut and a stellar fireworks display. (Sadly, Tom Brady was not present to carry me down the field. I’ve been meaning to speak to someone, ahem, Bob, ahem, about this…)
I spent another summer teaching swim lessons at Camp Putnam. This year was extra special because two of my cousins worked along side me as my lovely assistants. There is nothing more empowering than teaching a bunch of needy little guys a lifelong skill.
We were lucky enough to get out on the pond most weekends for some waterskiing. I’ve since learned that some of Worcester Fitness’ Finest frequent our favorite spot for fishing and kayaking. I tried not to scare all of the fish away, but I have a tendency toward spectacular falls while I’m waterskiing, so I make no promises!
When we finally sent home the last group of kids from Camp last Saturday, I drove out to Plymouth for a weekend of paddle boarding that has left my arms and abs aching. I think I even managed some paddle board yoga that would make Robin swoon!
Tonight is the Worcester Fitness 5 k. I’m dragging my little brother along for the fun…here’s hoping he can keep up!
