Let Me See That Lobstah Roll

I’m in Maine!!

After a 4.5 hour train ride and a 2-hour bus ride, I got in around 9pm last night.


We stopped at Amato’s on the way back to grab sandwiches, and I got the chicken pesto. After a long day of travel, I was starving.

We woke up this morning and went for a quick three-mile run before packet pickup.


Packet pickup was a little town hall.



This is, by far, the smallest packet pickup I’ve ever seen.

Because there are less than 300 people running this race! (Making it also, the smallest race I will have ever run.)


But for such a small race, the t-shirts aren’t bad! Tech tees for the win. (Also, hey Lindsay back there. Yes, I will be blogging this.)




We went to lunch at Portland Lobster Company, and I was an incredibly happy lady.


Lobster? Eating on the water? OH YES.


Lindsay, Lizzy and me


Our buzzers were lobster-shaped. I am seriously in love.



Oh sweet lobster and butter.


Afterwards, we walked around downtown Portland for bit and did some shopping. (I bought Bailey a stuffed lobster.)



Mom, I bet you’d like this place.


And then we went to the beach at Pine Point. Lobster and beach in one day!??!?!



And now it’s time to carb-load. I LOVE LIZZY.

    We used to have a cabin in Maine and would go every summer when I was a kid. My mom sold it when I was like 13 though. I miss it.

    Good luck in your race!

    Portland looks lovely. I was born in Maine, but moved away when I was three; I’d love to go back and enjoy the sites. Good luck at your race!

    I now have that tootsie roll song stuck in my head. 🙂 Congrats on a great race! We were down the Cape for a race this weekend (I was using Lizzy’s Falmouth bib haha, worlds collide!) and had those same lobster buzzers at dinner Saturday night. I wanted to stick mine in my purse…
