Final Key West Picture Purge – Run & Relax

Thanks for everyone’s great response to my recap of the Key West Half Marathon. It really was a great time! But like most good things, this racecation had to come to an end. Not before we got all touristy though…

In key West you walk. A lot. According to my pedometer app, we were averaging around 9 miles a day. How that’s possible on such a small island is beyond me. Anyway, because of that, I only went on one other run while there.

Then of course, I had to shower. Why not do it publicly.

Sadly, nobody paid.

Then we had to eat (and drink).

We flew over New Orleans, where I tried to leave a little luck for all my friends running the Rock n Roll NOLA 1/2 & 26.2 a couple days later.

  1. Glad it’s nice a warm there 🙂 Looks like you had a pretty awesome racecation!

  2. I’m not jealous at all. Warm weather and beaches? Yuck! It’s basically 0 degrees here. I wish I was talking Celsius – sadly, I am not.

  3. Sunshine and beaches? Yes! Iguanas in trees? Umm. No way!

  4. I’ve never been to Key West, but now I think I’m gonna have to add it to my bucket list!

  5. You are just making me crave Key West even more! Only 129 days, but who’s counting…

    The only place in the United States that you can pull off that shirt and it’s not hideous 🙂 Anywhere else…..forgedddaboutit

  7. WOW WOW WOW!!! Fabulous!! I wanna be there!! 🙂 XOXO

  8. ahh reminds me of my college days. Looks like a great time!

  9. That was such an entertaining recap. You really find the humor in everything and do a great job of telling your story. Plus you made me totally jealous and want to head somewhere warm asap. Glad you had a great trip and good luck getting back to reality after that one!

    • Thanks so much!!!! I try to keep it fun and silly. Yes, you need to get someplace warm asap! Ha yes, reality is hard to come back to!

  10. I think if/when I visit Key West, I probably won’t leave. It fits my personality all too perfectly. Nice pics!

  11. 9 miles for a small island is a ton of walking! Glad you got to see so much and have a blast with your family! I love trips like that. I wish you could send me some of that warm weather though, we got 3 feet of snow this week and apparently another storm is heading our way this weekend! Yikes!

    • Ha, yeah, a lot of people rent bikes or mopeds, but we decided to walk it. We got our mileage in! I wish I could send you some warmth too. I’m sorry about the snow!!!! Stay warm and safe!
