Last Day in Florida for 2013

This morning I ran straight to the beach to breathe in the salt water air and enjoy the ocean sounds.

There is a bridge I run over with the most gorgeous views of the sunrise. Paused here to enjoy God’s creations. Amen.

Run: It is exactly 5 miles from the house to the sand – perfect for a shake out before my flight.

This trip is actually short compared to our usual holiday visits to Florida. It is leaving me wanting more!

After my run I walked along the beach thinking about my 2014 resolutions. It was very relaxing Smile

Then, I called Ben to come pick me up and we drove through Dunkin Donuts on the way back.

Breakfast. The one healthy meal I’ve been eating each day. Beyond that it’s been less than stellar. Oh well, it’s the holidays and I won’t lose sleep over it – just get back on track when I get home.

Then, it was time to pack it up and head home. I used my ol’ dryer sheets in the running shoes trick…

Question: What are you doing for New Years Eve? Any fun parties??

    LOVE the Dunks! I am drinking some right now – it’s what helps me get through the day! :-)
    The hubby and I are hanging out tonight and watching a movie (and making a yummy meal – crab legs and homemade potato skins – certainly an interesting combo!). There will be champagne involved as well. And of course, some running!

    With small children, I’ll be lucky to be awake at midnight, lol. We will be staying home, making pizza and probably watching some movies. Nothing exciting but it’s cool.

    One of my besties had a baby recently, so I’ll be hanging out with that fam at their house. In bed before midnight I’m sure :-)

    I use the dryer-sheets-in-the-shoes trick too. And I put them all over my gym bag (I have about a million pockets). Makes a huge difference!

    Love the pictures of Florida; that’s one of our favorite places to visit! The hubs and I are ringing in the new year in style! We’re attending a NYE party at Public Functionary, an art gallery in Northeast Minneapolis. Happy New Year!

    Love your shirt. I love florida. We vacation there every year. Went for a curry last night and watched grown ups 2. Went for a 4 miler this morning. First of the year and scored a pr. Yay. Would never have run all the half marathons and distances that I ran last year if it wasn’t for your blog. You inspire me to get out there every day. I trained for a marathon but 18 miles was the furthest I got. Maybe this year. All the best for 2014.

    I don’t know the dryer sheets in the shoes trick? Does it help with moisture? Or smell? And does it work?? Thanks and happy 2014!!

    I miss Florida (and I was just there a month ago)! Thanks for the pics to live vicariously through you. :)

    We hosted a 90s themed party. It was a lot of fun! Happy 2014!
