Hello, New Jersey!

This is my first time in NJ, and the first week of our 14-day adventure with The H. I started the week with a lovely run from our hotel Monday morning. Although I started a bit fast, it felt GREAT to be running without a training plan hanging over my head! (FYI, the majority of that third mile was downhill!)

Split Moving Time Distance
1 0:08:34 1
2 0:08:34 1
3 0:08:03 1
4 0:08:31 1
5 0:08:23 1
6 0:00:23 0.05
 Summary 0:42:28 5.05

After I refueled (peanut butter toast, yogurt, melon) and got cleaned up, we set out for the Adventure Aquarium, where the little guy had a blast watching sharks, penguins, seals, and fish. He almost didn't stay awake through lunch, but lucky for us took a two-hour nap once we got back to our room. Whew!

Post-nap = pool. The water was a bit chilly (it was kind of breezy out) but I bet in a few days when the temp hits 98* or higher we will find ourselves there again. For dinner, we gladly gave our business to Pizza Pomodoro, which advertises an extensive gluten-free menu. Yay! A bit of brief grocery shopping followed, then it was home for bed. Whew! Great first day--looking forward to the rest of the week.

I forgot the camera cable, so no pics until I figure out how to upload from my phone or 'til I have The H load the memory card into his laptop...but trust me, there will be some! (Think: little guy in a full-body rashguard/wetsuit, complete with built-in Superman-esque swim floaties at the chest and back...)


  1. Welcome to Jersey!!! Too bad I'm on the other side of the state ... would have loved to meet up and go for a run :)

  2. That would've been awesome. :)

  3. Hmm, sounds like Cherry Hill NJ to me...you're in my hometown! Hope you have your wallet ready for King of Prussia. The mall is ridiculous. Glad you're having a fun time!

  4. Exactly the place. :) Looking forward to the mall!
