My talents went to South Beach ... (& GU Give Away)

My Facebook friends already know this, but I'll say it again. Every single part of my being wanted to be out of Miami for New Years. Truth is, we have spent almost every single new years over the last 13 years doing something adventurous. However, do to our recent love of running and competing in races we have had to be a little more strategic with our run-cations. So, despite multiple attempts to be away, my husband and I enjoyed a nice evening at home with 2 friends (who left at 9:30 p.m).



This morning we made the trek across Miami to South Beach. We met up with Amanda (@Runtothefinish) and a group of others for a Resolution Run! It was part of the 5 by the 5th challenge I am doing. Since my foot is still hurting (like a lot) when I run, I ended up walking for most of the 5K. I was beating myself up about it for a while but, I got over it. I run for me. I don't run for anyone else. I run to do my best, and at that moment, I was proud to get up out of bed on January 1st and drive 40 minutes to the beach for a run! 

I am glad that we were still in Miami for New years, because who would have wanted to miss this? 


I am blessed to have had the opportunity for an adventure in my own city and I am blessed to be married to someone who sees the value in celebrating every day. Every day is an adventure and we have a choice as to what memories we take with us. 

Happy New Year everyone!
