A Big Training Weekend!!

6 Aug

So, if you read my last post this title might be a little confusing…


Well let me explain then!

In a few weeks, I’ll be participating in my first ever Roller Coaster Race! Yep! That’s right!! And I’m going all out cause you know I love a challenge! 5K on Saturday and a 10K on Sunday.

This time though, the 5K is 3.1 miles of roller coasters at Six Flags New England!

In order to prepare – and, to be honest, to spend some quality time with friends, I headed to Pennsylvania this past weekend and spent some time at Hershey Park getting my roller coaster on!! Now, I have to confess: I LOVE Coasters!! But they kinda scare the crap out of me, and sometimes make me a little sick 🙂 But really, once you go over the first hill, it’s a piece of cake


and ginger chews were invented for just this kind of situation!!

One of the great things about going to Hershey Park is that if you buy your ticket the evening before, you get a couple of “free” hours in the park that night! So we hit a few coasters on Sunday night before it started raining.






Monday we returned and did a couple more coasters before spending a few hour in the water park (another confession: I LOVE water parks!) and then did a couple more rides before calling it a day.









So now I am all kinds of ready to hit another park and get in some more rides. Oh yeah, and that 10K thing too… 🙂

And  I will definitely get to the weekend re-cap really soon!! (spoiler alert: there may or may not be a picture of me and Phred with a large gingerbread man…)
