Weekend Trip To Vermont

Last weekend I took a trip to Vermont with my Dad and step-mom to participate in our second Tough Mudder. If you have never heard of a Tough Mudder before it is a 10.2 mile race with obstacles placed through out the course. Later on this week I will have a post with photos that my step-mom took from the event! While we were there we rented a home in West Dover, VT which was only about a mile away from the mountain which made it so easy to get to the race in the morning!

For a quick weekend trip I try not to over pack. I like to be able to fit most of what I am going to bring into my Lululemon Run All Day Backpack. I actually purchased this backpack to carry my things while I was working in the city but it has quickly turned into my favorite gym bag. I usually bring it to work every day for my lunch time gym session. In Vermont it was also about 10 degrees colder there then it was here, so I made sure to pack some long sleeve tops and jeans as well as some jackets. I also packed some clothes to get nice and muddy in for the race! 

I always seem to forget about Vermont for a weekend trip but it is only about an hour and a half from where I live which makes getting to so easy. It is great to head there in the winter for skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing and in the spring it is great for hiking and downhill mountain biking! Plus it seems like every where you turn there is either a farmers market or a gourmet deli/coffee shop to stop at! Where is your favorite place for a weekend trip? Comment below!
