We woke up early yesterday morning to start our drive to Kentucky. We said goodbye to Tampa, and made our way up north to the Bluegrass state, to celebrate my cousin’s wedding with all of our family. We made it through some rough smoke from the north Florida fires
and then drove our way through Georgia, Tennesee and into Kentucky. Driving all day can sure take a lot out of you, so we were early to bed for our run this morning!!
What’s better than running on vacation? Running with family on vacation! My cousin Dave is training for his very first marathon (The Kentucky Derby Marathon), and my Uncle Bob will be tackling another half marathon. Their race is the same day as the Country Music Marathon, so I can not wait to see how they do after I cross the finish line! A phone call will definitely be in order!
Dave took us on a great route, into one of my favorite places – Seneca Park. It is so beautiful, and the weather could not have been better! We had some nice flat parts of the run,
Along with a couple nice hills to throw in some variety.
I was thrilled to be able to get to do a nice loop in the park. Everything is starting to bloom, and the sights and smells were amazing.
An easy 10 mile run was over in a flash! We chatted the whole time, and everyone did awesome. Marcus rocked the run, even with his back injury. I love that I have family that loves to stay as active as I do! I definitely feel lucky for that!
I have a lot of family time ahead of me this weekend, and I can’t wait!! I do not get to see my Kentucky family nearly enough (the last time was our wedding!), and I am happy to squeeze it all in a few days
What about you? Do you have family that you run with? Do you make it a point to get out and run on vacation?
