Long weekend

This past long bank holiday weekend was one of the best in a very long time. I took  Friday off work, had a nice lie-in, did some training and early afternoon made my way to the airport to catch my flight to NYC... again. I was really looking forward to it as Shaun and I planned a nice fun-packed weekend.

First stop, West Point class 2009 graduation. It was lovely to see so many dreams of these young people coming true. Lovely weather and lovely day indeed. I loved seeing so many proud parents. 

The rest of the weekend included a long ride with Shaun down to George Washington bridge and back. Most of the day my view was like this

We also discovered a great triathlon shop on this route and ended up buying TriggerPoint stuff. I am looking forward to trying all that stuff. After the training was done, a trip to our favourite sushi place, followed by watching Star Trek at the cinema and grabbing some Jamba Juice on the way back home - life doesn't get better than that.

We've also spend some time BBQ-ing with friends.

Unfortunately, before I knew it, it was time to go back to London and back to work. :(((

Glad you had such a great weekend, albeit too short. They are always too short aren't they? :) Anyway - I got some Trigger Point stuff about a month or 2 ago and LOVE it - much better than my old foam roller. I hope you like it too!
