I had a pretty good Scattered Saturday. I had to be careful not to overdo it, because I might be running 15K again tomorrow. I believe I mentioned the mini-maker at Copper City Brewing in Rome, NY Sept. 13. Even though I ran my official Virtual Boilermaker last Sunday, I am signed up for the run in Rome. I messaged Copper City and offered to act as a volunteer instead, if they needed another one. In any case, I will be up early in the morning and off to Rome.
With a possible 15K in mind, I took a short run this morning. On my cool-down walk, I stopped at a neighbor’s house, where they were setting up a garage sale. They did not mind me taking a sneak preview.
Before garage saling, however, I had other chores to do. I put a load of laundry in the wash and wrote a few post cards. After the laundry was in the drier, I headed to Richfield Springs Community Food Cooperative, where I planned to have a cup of coffee and write.
For a picture of the Co-op, this shows a nice view of the opposite side of the street. After that pleasant interlude, I went back home to Herkimer to consider further options. I went to two neighborhood garage sales, where I made a few fun purchases. Then I decided to walk to Main Street to the Mohawk Valley Community Market, which includes Renewed and Rescued, and Wakefield Furniture.
Unfortunately, it was close to their closing time when I got there. I went across the street to the End Zone Pub and Grub for a beer. When I was in the army, a drill sergeant said it was a good idea to have one beer the night before a PT test. YES, I had just one beer!
Now I am home and taking it easy before my big day tomorrow. I had a bowl of pasta and I am hydrating. Am I better prepared to run 15K than I was last week at this time? I don’t know. However, I had an enjoyable Saturday and I am looking forward to Sunday.
