Saturday morning, we hit the road at 6am for our drive home. We made decent time, thankfully, and had enough time to stop at the High Point of New Jersey. (Yes, this is indeed one of the instances where Beer Geek earns the “geek” part of his name.) In addition to the actual geographic high point, NJ has erected a 220 foot tower on the spot. Inside are stairs leading up to what is supposedly an awesome view. Jones discovered he has a fear of heights and he and I climbed the first four sets of steps multiple times as he tried to conquer it and go to the top. Beer Geek and Shoo, on the other hand, made it all the way up.
We are home now and the weather forecast calls for temps in the high 90s/low 100s. I ran on the treadmill today and it was not a fun run. I did, however, manage to hit 20 miles for the week, even with being on vacation. I also didn’t gain any weight while on vacation and may in fact have lost some.
