Weekly Wrap for 3.12.18-3.18.17: Leaving on a Jet Plane


ru

Yes, I packed my bags and flew to Florida to visit friends and run a half marathon.

Last week – 

  • Monday – With more snow predicted, I decided that I best squeeze in another run.  And I did.

just one UAlbany loop – it was the therapy that I needed after getting some bad news about a friend

  • Tuesday – Yes, we got snow …AGAIN!!!!!.  So I had to resort to the treadmill for a short run before tennis. I love being in town on a Tuesday to catch up with my tennis friends.
  • Wednesday – I was worried that due to the weather, my flight would be cancelled.  Luckily, it was not. So I took an early morning flight to West Palm Beach, FL and then I drove to Delray Beach to stay with a friend (who coincidentally just had knee replacement surgery.) We had a nice day at the pool, at a bird sanctuary and then dinner out.

  • Thursday – Another day in paradise. Started the day with a run, followed by the pool. Then spent the afternoon at the beach. I had dinner with an old friend and ended the day watching the sunset.

  • Friday – I decided to be smart today and rest. I took a leisurely walk and then met my college roommate for brunch. After a few errands, I drove to Vero Beach to pick up my race packet and then to Sebastian where my sister-in-law and her husband live. I carb loaded at an Italian restaurant and then relaxed at their home.

  • Saturday – Race Day!! An early wake up and drive to Vero Beach. No problems and perfect weather. More about the race in my recap but the highlight was meeting a lady who was nervously running her first half marathon and running the whole race chatting and encouraging her.

Afterward I celebrated with drinks and lunch on the water, seeing the sights of Sebastian before heading off to Hobe Sound where I would be spending my final two nights.

  • Sunday –  I felt very fresh so started the day with an easy run. Then we spent the afternoon relaxing on the beach.

I celebrated my last night in Florida with an awesome seafood dinner

  1. What a lovely week! I am so sorry I couldn’t join you this weekend! Sometimes, the size of this state is totally overwhelming!

    I can’t wait to see how the half went. I know it wasn’t the race you planned to do, but I would be curious to see how it was!

    My allergies are in full flux right now – the pollen is coming in thick and hard, combined with the fluctuating temps (30s one day, 80s the next). It’s a mess. My running is going – my half is in a couple of weeks, and while I’m ready for it, I wish I felt better right now.

    • It’s funny that you say that. I coughed and sniffed by whole time in Florida and now I’m fine.

      The race was not what i planned but I had fun and that’s what matters.

  2. It had to feel great to escape winter if only for a short time. FLorida sunshine is always welcome. Lately our winter hasn’t been too bad. Knock wood, we’ve been pretty snow-free for awhile now. I’m ready for it to warm up though.

  3. I’m admittedly a tad jealous of those Florida travel pics, haha. I’m getting tired of the snow up here and a trip to warm weather sounds pretty fantastic right about now!

  4. I’m glad you made it to FL without any travel problems! It looks like the weather was perfect during your visit. You sure do know how to pack a lot into one trip too! It’s wonderful you were able to connect with so many friends/relatives. Congrats on another half marathon. Thanks for linking!
