14 miles, drum circles and fishing…we must be in Venice again…

Hello from Venice! I may have mentioned we were coming down here to spend some time with my SIL and her husband who are in town for the week and we are having a blast.

I have still managed to run 14 miles in the past two days. Yesterday was a pretty decent tempo run and today was 7 miles, negative splits. I just love running on the legacy trail and who wouldn’t, check it out:

He found it funny to hide behind the tree every time I took a shot and then laughed at me as I wasted 6 minutes and half of my memory card, stinker! If I see him again tomorrow, I’ll try again.

After this week, I’m going on a major diet, for real. I am having a blast but also eating like a boss. Not only are we going out to dinner a lot…..

but there’s also the little matter of all that fish we’re catching…

Somebody’s got to eat it, right?

You gotta love fresh fish!

We spent most of the day on the boat today so after all that sun, I got a little stupid and took this fantastic selfie:

Nice, huh?

After my stupid selfie party, we went to the Nokomis Drum Circle and had a blast! I met Lori there, she’s is a total sweetheart. (Hi Lori)

Lori had the coolest LED hula hoop ever! SIL and I really want to get one now except I can’t hula hoop. unfortunately, I have the rhythm of a stick bug. I’m still gettin one though…I’ll learn it. I’ll just look like a stick bug who hula hoops.

Look how cool these things look all lit up at night:

Kinda makes you want one, doesn’t it? And it has to be a great way to work out, don’t you think?

We’re headed off for some ice cream now so I’ll catch up with you again tomorrow. Good night from Nokomis Beach.

Do you run or work out when you’re on vacation? Ever been to a drum circle?

  1. I’m from Venice 🙂 Loved growing up there!! My entire family still lives down there and we can’t wait to move back one day. We love to cycle the entire Legacy Trail. So nice 🙂

    • I am so jealous that you got to grow up here. It is beautiful! We just got our vacation house last year and I can’t get enough of the place..
