It’s a Silent Sunday post, sort of. I had a 14.3 mile run today. Why 14.3? Well, at mile 7, 9, 11 and 12, I spent time in the porta potties because my stomach revolted on me and by mile 12, my dead butt and some serious hip pain kicked in and I had to limp, yes limp back to the house. Time for a break I guess. Anyway, here is my run in pictures and 3 species of birds….see if you can find all three….
The Legacy Trail in Nokomis
Another random view of the trail because I need you to know how pretty it is…
The view from the Trailhead in Nokomis at Shackett Creek
The trail bridge which is by far my favorite part of the trail, I saw a manatee today!
A random cool bird because I like random cool birds and so do you, right?
A beautiful view of Dona Bay and one of the reasons I love it down here….
Railroad tracks alongside the Legacy Trail
I always know when the bathrooms are near because I look for the red bike, ha.
This is what winter looks like in Florida, kind of like Fall.
Some random purple berries I thought about eating when my hip starting burning and I had to walk….I was starving but don’t worry I didn’t eat them.
A bazillion Vultures that scared the bejesus out of me.
After the limping and the vultures, I knew this run had to end. Once I got home MacGyver thought fishing would cheer me up…after I helped him move all the logs from a fallen tree in the backyard, because there is no rest for the weary…or injured when it comes to yard work!
This guy hung out with us while we fished today. Coolest thing ever. He was the most docile pelican I’ve ever seen. No Mom, I didn’t try to pet him.
And that was my day.
What did you do today? Long run? Race? Have you ever had to limp home?
