The trip started on May 9 when Jason and I headed to Destin, Florida for a work project (his, not mine). I enjoyed my morning runs, naps, reading by the pool, beach walks, naps, a pleasant day visiting my old stomping grounds, and more naps, but after a while I was ready for something else. Our condo had some air-conditioning issues and we had some very loud neighbors who liked to go to the pool at 11:00p.m. Thankfully, I could get a nap after an evening of little sleep. Poor Jason could not. I went for a run in the mornings, usually followed by breakfast and a swim in the pool or a walk on the beach. I would read and nap, do my pilates and weights videos, write a little and wait for Jason to get back so we could eat and go get some delicious frozen yogurt. Our last night there, Jason and I went out for seafood and walked on the beach holding hands. My favorite. We were glad to head out when we finally left on May 18.

The race was so fun! Jason won the whole thing, which was just awesome (especially since he couched it into a 20 mile day) and I finished in 27:36, which made me happy. I wasn't sure what I'd be able to do out there. Running in Florida had been tough and I wasn't sure if it was the heat or the progressing pregnancy. I took it easy, with splits of 9:14, 9:22, 8:40. The finish line was on the home plate of the Joseph P. Riley Jr. Ballpark. All the Riverdogs baseball players high-fived us as we ran through. The race was followed by a baseball game, and Jason and I couldn't really stay for it, but we came through with our tickets in order to get our free Riverdogs tube socks. Jason received a Bubba Gump Shrimp bucket full of all kinds of goodies for winning the race and then we stopped for a quick bite at Atlanta Bread Company (where a kid told us we looked "tight" in our matching shirts and tube socks) before heading to the resort to meet up with his family.
