This weekend Marty, Lucy and I will be making a trip to South Jersey in what will likely be our final roadtrip (non-work related) until the holidays. The trip is one that we’d probably take anyway because for the second year in a row Marty is racing in the Brigantine Triathlon which is just a few towns over from his parents’. However, this year we are also celebrating Marty’s niece’s high school graduation/college send-off.
Luckily, Lucy loves roadtrips!
I didn’t have this blog yet when we went down to the race last year but let’s just say that keeping a puppy occupied for 4-5 hours on a 90-degree day is not fun!
Don’t get me wrong, Lucy did tremendous, but I vividly remember Marty carrying her back to our car because she was so pooped out.
So on Saturday morning we’ll be awake at the ass-crack of dawn for Marty’s race, after which I’ll fit in a workout of my own and then we’ll head out for an afternoon of celebrating. Fortunately Marty’s sister and her family were more than happy to have Lucy join us in the celebration. They have a dog of their own – Diesel – so neither Marty nor I expect Lucy to be awake for most of Sunday (and probably most of Monday)!
