Florida!!

Well I am back in Florida...twice in one year is awesome, and this time it is hot! I have been living in tank tops and shorts which is aweeeesome!

I have been here since Saturday afternoon and I am loving it. The humidity is pretty high (like 95%!!) but I have been running!

This morning I ran on the beach with B-Rabbit and it was super tough! The sand wasn't firmly packed in some places and its not totally flat so I kept slipping. We went out about 1.5 miles and then came back and it took us 30 minutes round trip.

My hair has been a frizztastic mess thanks to the heat and humidity. I have been using a new product I bought, Pantene's Humidity Protection. It actually works pretty well and my hair hasn't been too out of control! Anyway, I am off to the beach now to get some sun! Happy Monday!

Running in the sand is tough! It works completely different muscles.

Good job!

Do you know how cruel it is to post a picture of a gorgeous beach while we're at work on a Monday morning?! Just kidding, J! You totally deserve this little vay-cay. Enjoy!

(And running on the sand is impossible!)

I love the beach, though I haven't run in the sand. I worry I'll hurt myself!

Hope you continue having a great time!

Mmm...sounds like a great time. But running in the humidity is tough enough without adding in the sand! What a great workout.

Have a fantabulous time! Don't worry about that hair-throw it back in a ponytail or put it in a hat. Enjoy!

Glad you're having fun! I ran on the sand a couple of weeks ago and was shocked at how much harder it was! Whew!
