Hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend. We are in Venice. We came down Friday with my in-laws and are having a blast. Here’s a little recap of the weekend in pictures….
First stop is Nokomis Groves for 40 pounds of oranges and grapefruit…I kid you not!
And you cannot leave the Groves without Orange and Vanilla Ice Cream! It taste just like a creamsicle. I would share but it’s long gone…
Saturday Morning, we headed out to Lakewood Ranch….
I think this is the clubhouse for Lakewood Ranch, but I couldn’t get over the bar…it was pretty awesome.
Entering the Expo for the Active Suncoast Half Marathon!
The expo for the Suncoast half was small but very personal and I loved it.
After the Expo, we headed to the Nokomis Drum Circle. If you ever come to Venice or Casey Key, this is a do not miss!
There are bellydancers and hula hoopers and some people who really can’t dance at all and sort of spaz out all over. I like watching them all.
There are tons of shells on the beach and even prehistoric sharks teeth.
There were 5 or 6 sailboats out this evening.
There were hundreds of people who came out for the drum circle.
The sunset was beautiful however, my picture taking skills need some work.
After the drum circle we headed to Pop’s on the water for some serious carbs.
We ate outside around the fire table while watching the band.
MacGyver and Mom and Dad.
Too many Coronas later, time to end the night…
This morning, I woke up at 3AM, headed down to Lakewood Ranch and just a little after 9am, I completed my first half marathon and first race of the year!
Suncoast Half Marathon
I’ll do a full recap later but for now, I’m a bit tired, a bit under the weather, and hella hungry!
Did you run a race this weekend? How was it?
