Always fun in St. Auggie!

This weekend, Abby and I went to visit my sister, Laura and her husband, James and my nephew, Finn in St. Augustine. Finn just turned 2 this Thanksgiving and he is so much fun to play with. Definitely need to make more trips to St. Auggie so I don't get the evil eye from Finn. If you want to see Finn in action. Check out this video from last night. Finn doing intervals.

Anyways, the trip was also filled with some great training. Road a total of 120 miles for the weekend, which included a 80 miler on Sunday. I had no clue where I was going. I was just following the group and ended up in Ponte Vedra. We went everywhere! Way out west towards the river and then all the way back to the Atlantic! 80 miles has been the most I have ridden in a probably a year and a half. I need it though! My bike is goal number one over the off season - ride, lift, and ride some more. But I can never forget to get a jog in St. Augustine. I just love running there. Going downtown towards the fort and going over the Bridge of Lions towards the park. Just awesome! This a great way to start my two weeks of epic training. No school = heavy legs!

A trip to St. Augustine is never complete without going to dinner downtown. Laura and James took us to the Floridian which was just amazing! I love the outside seating in the back and the shrimp n' grits was awesome. Of course, we ended up at JP Henley's for a beer and had the Rough black IPA.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday's! Only a few more days till Christmas.
