8 miles in Key West ...

Yesterday morning (after sleeping in), I ran eight miles. I started outside with views like this ...
But it was HOT. And even with sunblock, my skin was burning. So, instead of suffering in the elements, I met up with J for the last three miles of my run on the treadmill, which could have been horrible. But it wasn't. I got to run with my hubby. In a room with the air conditioning set on 68. With a view that didn't suck ...
It doesn't get much better than this ...

It looks like heaven! Take a dip for me! Our view at the pool is not quite as beautiful.

That view would definitely make treadmill running more doable. Enjoy your vacation!

Good attitude. I was there years back in the midst of marathon training. Had to get in long runs there...as you know, there's not much in the way of good places to run there! But the good points of K.W. outweigh the downside.
