Mich Ultra Ft. Lauderdale Half #16. Run Buds.

Mich Ultra Ft Lauderdale Half #16. It was hot n humid then it was cloudy then it rained. I didn’t do what I wanted but my runbud Joe did amazing for his first race. We’re soggy cold and happy. Earning that beer for sure. Body just didn’t cooperate

Everyday just keep swimming.

Everyday just keep swimming. Entering week 6 of no running. There were some dark days but there is now progress. I could walk down stairs like most yesterday. HUGE. Today I walked in the sand without pain OR a limp. I even swam down to the bottom kicking. Progress makes me feel hopeful. Now to lace up and get back on the road. I’m thankful for the amazing friends and support I have had. We all need help. It’s hard to ask for it but it’s even harder to admit it

Weekend of swimming with Sam the nurse shark and Domino the sea turtle

domino sea turtle thumbnailThis weekend was finally great weather to snorkel. It has been very windy and choppy the last few weekends. I made sure to take full advantage.

The ocean was as flat as glass. I hit the ocean saturday morning at 9 am. It is breakfast time for the fishies. I sure didn’t want to miss a beat. I clearly wasn’t the only one with the brilliant idea of hitting the water. Diving flags were everywhere.

I couldn’t help but feel excitement at seeing my nurse sharks again. I’ve been feeling like a fish out of water lately. I knew that if I asked to see my sharks that I’d get it.

Surfs up, dude. Free Surf Lessons!

YAWN..I am so not a morning person but for a free surf lesson I can be. Ha. No really. I am! The fine people at island water sports are nice enough to put them on every saturday morning starting at 7am.

I got there right at 7. I was expecting 5…10 tops but there was atleast 50.

After signing in and giving my emergency contact we were all assigned teams. I was teamed up with 2 teenage girls. We grabbed our 9′ padded board and headed to the beach.
