This weekend was the annual Battle of Plattsburgh event that our town hosts to remember the famous battle that happened here in 1814. Each year, they have games, activities, reenactments, and music that lasts through the weekend. We look forward to it each year.
So, we filled our weekend with Battle of Plattsburgh activities.
We ate ice cream downtown while enjoying the festivities.
We marched in a parade.

We played old time children's games at the Children's Village Fair.

We ate our last Italian ice of the season (well, I didn't eat any...).
The kids had karate and swimming lessons.
In the chaos of the weekend, I was also able to get in a long run. I did 9 miles with some women from work on Sunday morning and it felt great. The sluggishness I experienced on my previous run was gone, and I felt like I could run forever. My legs felt great, my lungs felt great, and my mind felt great. I don't know if it is the fact that I have less chemicals in my system or if I was just having a good running day, but I had a really good time.
I planned to talk about my exercise goals and future fitness plans, but this post is too long already. I think I'll save that topic for tomorrow or the next day. I hope your weekends were filled with fun and excitement like mine. If not, there's always next weekend.
