There’s nothing like running on vacation trips in beautiful locations. But three half-marathon distances in ten days? That’s a bit on the crazy side, but CRR Dave Schultz seemed to have a good time anyway.

Next up—beautiful Acadia National Park on Mt. Desert Island in Maine. Beginning in Bar Harbor on August 8, Schultz did a mostly-trail run through the park. By his own admission, the time was slow (2 hours and 44 minutes), but, hey, it was a trail run in and he put in an extra half mile or so (13.7 mi.).

After visiting the White Mountains in New Hampshire and hiking up and down the 6,288-ft. Mt. Washington, Schultz completed his New England half-marathon trifecta on August 11 in Nashua, N.H., covering a 13.3-mi. distance in 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Quite the accomplishment and quite the stamina! Well done.

So, what did you do on your summer vacation?
