Lucky for me, I happened to find myself sitting next to a wonderful young woman at one of my conferences. Like how all of my conversations go when meeting people, running came up. I was beyond excited to learn that she is a runner too!
Immediately we began looking at our schedule trying to figure out when we could fit in our run. We found a small hole in the schedule, ran back to our cabins, changed, and took off.
Our first run on Tuesday, we took on some trails going up the summit. The trails were quite muddy and challenging - meaning they were all uphill, which meant it was tons of fun! After some trail running we made our way to the paved road that took us to the summit. The view from the top was absolutely breathtaking.
On Wednesday, we decided to change things up a bit and run down to Lincolnville Beach. Again, gorgeous views. It was hard to return to the conference, but it had to be done.
Our little group ended the night with some drinks up on the Summit, then dinner in Camden. If you've ever been to Camden, it's a gorgeous little coastal town. Even at night.
Today, Thursday, there was no running. But, during one of our mini breaks, we walked over to the fitness center to check out this stretchmate. I really think I need one of these for myself. There was a poster with suggested stretches, but I am positive with more time, I can come up with a wide variety of incredible stretches.
On our way out of the fitness center, Melinda, my new running friend, noticed this quote on the wall.
I want this to be me, one of those older ladies in my 70's and 80's who looks amazing and just keeps running.
Have your gone out on adventure runs while away from home? Tell me!
