Nassau day 2……

I was determined not to lay in bed all day today like yesterday. Yesterday was different though, i NEEDED the sleep!

I was out the door at 10am exactly for a run, after running half a mile i met up with another runner, she was a 68 year old retired dentist called Carol who ran twelve miles a day, six days a week and only had Sundays off! I increased my pace up a touch to keep up with her as i didn't like asking her to slow hers down i asked her if she minded me joining her and she said she would be welcome of the company! we ran and chatted for two miles one way at which point i left her  turned around and ran two miles back on my own to my hotel. She couldn't believe what i was doing when i told her why i was in the USA, she had only ever been to two concerts in her life, both were people who i didn't know and cant remember.

There's a really cool diner next to my hotel and i went to take a couple of pictures of it this morning after my run. There's also a place next door that i took a picture of.

What i NEED                                       What a WANT!

While i was talking to John K’s wife last night she mentioned a little town near me that i should check out called Huntington so I'm gonna take a drive over there and check the place out today.

Few random thoughts.

Things I've lost on the tour so far:

1 bottle of shampoo, 1 bottle of shower gel 1 pair of running shorts. Don't think that's too bad!

Shows I've seen so far : Sixteen

Shows left to see: Thirty Five

Number of Long Island Iced Teas : Lost count but none for the last few days. I'm over them now.

Best Long islands so far: The District steak house in Washington DC, they were amazing. only had one as i was driving

Best dinner so far: Has to be Joe’s in Chicago

The driving isn't as bad when I'm in the car with someone else but on my own it sucks!

Seeing a show on my own really sucks and i miss people I've seen and left so much.

Toronto seems so long ago!

  3. Don't you just love older runners!! They are so inspiring! Look up Helen Kline some day (I know her and I am trying to someday beat her records). Good for you to run with her!!

    Love this writing today, can't wait to hear more!

    Sad that we can't all just up and leave our lives more often, but I know I will cherish the memories I had of Chicago. Now, I'm working hard to do the big meet up in LA and SJ!

    Thanks again, Si ... love the blog!
