Vacation Update: Waves and 5k’s!

I told you I’d be inspired to blog this week. I just can’t stay away. It’s an obsession. :) Anyway….

I had to pop in and tell you about the July race for my one running event per month goal this year. Yesterday I met JenInRL on the boardwalk in Atlantic City to run the Christmas in July 5k. It was awesome seeing Jen again after FitBloggin. I didn’t really get a chance to hang out with many during the conference. I was just too frazzled.

Anyway Here we are before the race…

We had a blast running this 5k! Jen did an amazing job for her first. We kept a great run/walk pace for the 3 miles and then I ran ahead so I can snap her crossing the finish line…

I was able to record the run on the Nike+ after picking up a new iPod before heading out for vacation. Did I tell you I fried my last one on sweaty run last weekend? I can’t remember, regardless, here’s our run….

Chart taken from Nike+ web site after sync. Click here to see how I did it.

After the race we walked down the boardwalk and decided on some Ben and Jerry sorbets. An amazing post race treat on quite a hot morning!

We split a small mango and a pomegranate. Both SUPER yummy!

I then returned to the family and had the most amazing beach day ever! It was pristine out. Nothing but blue skies for miles. The water was a fabulous 73 degrees, the waves are incredible and I got to enjoy it all with my fearless little man…

We spent more time in the water then out and I hope to do it all again today! I gotta go get ready… it’s 7AM and he’s already got his suit on. ;)

By the way.. took that video with the new phone. It’s amazing!

Oh! and the 5 year old quote of the day, yesterday was… "Beach! Here I come!" being screamed from the porch of our rental. LOL

Hope you are having a great week! I’ll be back again, I’m sure. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I love kid’s enthusiasm for the beach.

    And how cool that The Salvation Army helped sponsor that race. I work for them and love it.

    Sadly there has not been much beach going this summer down in the Gulf. Your video makes me want to go.

    What a great idea…. sometimes I have a tendency to just stop working out if I’m on vacation… but I never really thought of finding a 5K to do while I am out of town.

    Now that is a priceless video! Glad you are having fun!

    We had a couple waves like that when we were down in OBX! One took ME out! Have an amazing time this week!

    LOL that wave was kinda violent! I loved to get that wipeouts from waves as a kid =) I still do! So jealous of you guys, as I said to you on facebook, I’m freezing my butt down here!! Really cold winter in the south hemisphere. And you really should keep taking Bill to the beach for a tan, all day long. There’s white people, then there’s MJ, and then is the Edward guy from the Twilight movies, and then comes Bill LOL
