4 Mile Run in Henderson!

Today I went for a four mile run on the beach again pretty much only because I’d eaten so much dessert food and I felt like I needed to go run because I’d been eating so horribly!  I’ll be very honest and say today was a really bad cheat day from eating a good diet… probably the worst I could ever do!  For breakfast I had strawberry shortcake on a biscuit with a little bit of vanilla ice cream and let me tell you–how delicious was that!  Sooo good!  Then for lunch I had a tiramisu from a restaurant that my aunt works at that she brought for me to try and that was unbelievable too.  So with all the horrible eating I’d say I was definitely due for a run.  🙂  Funny thing was that it was actually a great run too!  I forgot the time but I ran it at a pretty good pace!  Maybe I should always eat dessert for every meal…

Total: 4 miles

7 Mile Run…

Woke up tuesday morning planning to go on a 3 mile run, until my uncle tells me I should run 6 miles to the end of the beach and back because there are some cool little board walks to smaller swimming holes that are neat to look at, so I decided to take on the 6 mile run to look at the board walks and side swimming holes!  Turns out that was a pretty big mistake though because…

1) I was looking for the board walks in the wrong areas and missed all three of them!
2) I was dogging it real hard and was soooo tired!
3) My uncle lied and didn’t want to tell me that it was actually just under 7.5 miles!

So overall it was a really rough run, but at the same time it was great because it was on the beach and I had some good things to look at along the way!  Plus the weather was great! There were some neat little structures along the way too including this tiki bar someone put together from sticks…  (Sorry for the bad quality picture, was taken with a different phone!)

Anyway, probably wouldn’t have made it through if it weren’t for the view of the beach to distract me and some good weather!

Total: About 7.5 miles

Lake Ontario Camp!

After Lake Placid I headed down to Henderson, NY to spend a couple days at my uncle’s camp right on Lake Ontario.  I absolutely fell in love with this place too because it was like a beach but not!  The water was so clear, the sand was the softest sand I’ve ever felt and the water was shallow for like a quarter mile out!  It was really neat that it was so shallow for so long because you could go out really far and still be able to touch so it was awesome to feel so far out in the water!  Not to mention I was able to kayak a bit and paddle board, both of which I had never done before!  I went out for 20-30 minutes at a time just kayaking or paddle boarding which was fun, especially since the water was so clear and I could see the bottom the whole time!  Also, I took the kayak out one night as the sun was setting which was so awesome because I went out reallllly far and just sat in the kayak for about 5 minutes watching the sun go down!  I’m thinking next summer when I’m done with lacrosse I’ll just pack my bags and live in Henderson for the summer and work at a place on the beach, so then on weekends I can drive up to Lake Placid.  🙂  I’m thinking it’s a great plan!  Anyway, it was a great place to visit and I’m missing it already!
