Trail Run - With a View

Trail Run - With a View

I'm running a trail race at the end of May and thought Robinson's Woods would be a good practice run. It didn't disappoint, if you've never been, it's a great place to walk or run, and dog-friendly. Not to mention, there is a beautiful view of the ocean if you cross Shore Road.

Foursquare nuts

Foursquare nuts

In December DH and I got "smart phones."  And with that, I've been able to join the ranks of Foursquare.... with a vengeance.  Naturally, everything's got to be a competition.  So, I was really thrilled when I became the "mayor" of my LYS (that's "local yarn store").  My very first mayorship!  Goodie!  Now, I just have to keep going back to protect my mayorship.  Who knew that this would turn into the One Ring for me... "my precioussssss."  It's only a matter of time before I'm mayor of Shaw's!  Hannaford!  CVS!  The Kennel Shop!  I'll take over the entire Millcreek neighborhood!
