Florida Photo Friday

The first day we were there it was sunny and then the thunderstorms came in!

Going to the beach! yes I did buy the swimsuit that Chic Runner has and I absolutely love it!!

After my morning beach run I found these tracks in the sand - a turtle had come and lay eggs right next door to the place we were staying!! I wish I had seen a turtle while we were there but sadly I didn't.

We went to this Lighthouse and walked the 200+ stairs to the top!

We made it to the top of the lighthouse!!

Brian spent 3 hours building this turtle in the sand!!

So those are just a few of the 200+ pictures that my uncle and I took on the trip. It basically was a big family vacation and a lot of fun! Today I did my long run (more on this later) and Saturday will be an easy recovery job. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

There is nothing better than a run on the beach!

Cool pics! Thanks for sharing! And I am in awe of Brian' work! That is sooo coool!

And about your note - it's all about recovery. I think people are just too competitive. I see it wit my running club even - folks out on weekend runs trying to beat everyone else on a training run. No wonder so many end up injured.
