Providence & Narragansett, Rhode Island

We made a short trip to Rhode Island this weekend so that I could compete in the Ironman 70.3 Rhode Island Triathlon. The 80 minute drive to Providence was uneventful but pleasant. Let’s hope that I-384 never replaces Route 6 as the main road to Providence. The weather was glorious, so we walked around a bit. I picked up my registration packet at the Rhode Island Convention Center. We checked out the race expo, then walked over to the second transition at Station Park. Providence has had some great re-development in recent years. Hartford, Connecticut should analyze why Providence has successfully revitalized its downtown.

Narragansett is a cool Rhode Island beach town. Fishermen’s State Park was booked solid, so we found other camping accommodations for the night. Our spot wasn’t far from the Block Island Ferry. The race started at Roger W. Wheeler State Beach, so we were fortunate to camp less than a mile away. On Saturday, we had an excellent dinner at Crazy Burger. We loved it. They have the largest selection of vegan burgers that we have ever seen. We were fortunate to have Googled vegetarian options before we left. Crazy Burger was the only selection. We are glad that we found it. Debbie returned for breakfast on Sunday. We had a crazy amount of rain and wind on Saturday night. Our VW Pop-Top was swaying in the breeze as the rain pitter pattered off the roof. It was a classic Rhode Island squall.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
