We were on vacation last week, and went to Florida for the warm, warm sunshine.
Apparently the warm, warm sunshine was also on vacation, but we enjoyed temperatures warmer than the Northeast and did not get rained on so we considered it a success.
One thing that was infinitely more fun in Florida was running. For one thing, the sights are so different. Palm trees, flowers, green grass. As opposed to potholes, barren pine trees and snowbanks. It was really nice.
And flat. Extremely flat. Makes running more fun for those of us who are not inherently fans. Of running that is.
I did stay on the lookout for reptiles of the funky sort. When we were on our honeymoon in Key West umpteen years ago I saw the oddest looking creatures that enjoyed creeping out of the bushes right in front of me while I wasn't looking. Scared the bejeezus out of me. Bright blue and green lizardy looking things. Some of them even crawled up the walls. I pretty much ran with my eyes on the ground to make sure nothing caught me unawares. Mission accomplished. No reptilian heart attacks this vacation.
Now we are back in the snowyish, coldish Northeast. And beginning the countdown to our first triathalon. May 8th. Just over two months away.
Okay then, I am off to hyperventilate. See you all in a few.
