Spending a summer in Lake Placid had been a dream of mine since I worked as a camp counselor there circa 2006. I am so grateful to have made that dream a reality, and turned it into a "honeymoon" nonetheless! At the beginning of our trip (after the wedding), we did a lot of training and a lot of nothing. Unplanned time felt necessary on the tail end of a school year that included working more than full time, finishing my Ph.D., planning our wedding, and training hard. After a few weeks of little more than swimming, biking, and running, we were both feeling restless. So, we set an ambitious goal - do something fun and "Adirondack-y" every day. I think we were pretty successful - we managed to enjoy the area while still leaving time for a daily nap. Here are some of our favorite non-training moments....
