Yeah, we run in paradise around here.

Sometimes all you need is a change of scenery.

I haven’t much felt like running, as you probably already knew if you read my last post, but I still managed to somehow squeeze out around 24 miles last week although a lot of it was walking but the highlight of my week was Sunday.

On Sunday my sister and law and I went over to the Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail and while MacGyver fished, we walked.  It looked like this:

Courtney Campbell TrailIt really makes you want to come run this trail doesn’t it? Because if it doesn’t then you’re not normal.  Come on down.  I’ll just wait for you, right here, under this palm tree.

We walked about four and a half miles of the trail although the entire length of the trail from Clearwater to the other side in Tampa is ten and a half miles long.  It’s one of the most scenic trails you will ever run on and I highly recommend it.  I’ve actually seen dolphins while running this trail and (what I believe was a devil ray) sailing out of the water.  It’s truly epic.

It is hot and muggy in Florida, I’ll give you that but seriously, we run in paradise around here.

Where is your favorite place to run and why?

  1. It’s not as humid here as the locals think it is.

    I wish I had one great scenic route here.

    Of course you’ve seen a dolphin on your run! You’re Snow White. Mother nature’s avatar 🙂
