The Autumn sports activities started officially in the last week of September with the Half Marathon in the Hamptons. Our Swiss friend Andreas was joining us for a longer weekend and running with us as well. The event was well organized with the best after party ever. As it was the end of the season, there were not many other people besides the runners – we had the beach almost for ourselves.
The next event was the “Tour de Credit Suisse” a bike tour from New York to Raleigh NC in beginning of October. This was the 2nd time I participated in the 4 day event and it was even better than the first time. I did daily videos, the same as last year. You can see there the fun we had and the great friendships we build. I was so lucky to be able to do it again.
Access to the daily videos:
Day 1 – Tour de Credit Suisse
Day 2 – Tour de Credit Suisse
Day 3 – Tour de Credit Suisse
Day 4 – Tour de Credit Suisse
Thanks to everyone who participated and organized, this was an amazing tour.
End of October was the Marine Corp Marathon in Arlington VA, Jolanda was running a 10k and I was running the full marathon. Despite the rain, we had a great time in Washington DC.
Finally I decided to pursue a new outdoor sport. Some of Jolanda’s friends convinced me to go frostbiting with a sunfish. I have to report that I make good progress. Last weekend I even finished every race (we did 5). I had to buy a drysuit and of course tested if it keeps me dry with a beer in the “beautiful” Marina water. Stay tuned…
Well done, you two!! Hope to see you in the New Year…Florida, perhaps? We’ll be in touch after we make our dreaded crossing of the Gulf in early January! Merry Christmas to you both!
