A weekend in the country.

My wife and I visited a friend this weekend in the upper part of Westchester County, NY. It turned out to be a picture-perfect weekend, with cool nights, sunny, warm days, and not a hint of rain. Yet, it was still necessary to get in the training. Saturday I got in a bike ride with my friend. It wasn’t a very long ride, 21 miles, but it was all up and down some pretty steep hills. Sunday, I went for a nice long run of 13.1 miles (yes, being a slave to the Garmin I wanted it to be a half marathon). The run was mostly along a rails-to-trails route which was once the “Old Put” rail line, which ran from the upper reaches of Westchester County to the Bronx. Along the way I saw the usual fauna, a few rabbits and squirrels, and a deer, but also a chipmunk, a fox, a large tortoise, and a beaver dam which was causing some minor flooding of the running path. During this weekend trip, we also visited Sunnyside, the home of Wasington Irving situated on the banks of the Hudson below Tarrytown. It was a great way to spend a relaxing weekend.
