i went to Miami this weekend for the half and full, i couldn't run but i was with 5 running friends who did. I went to mile 11 and cheered them on, i was beyond proud and excited for them. This was the first time I have ever gone away with friends who I don't know that well. It was amazing. It was fun, relaxing and just overall a really nice time. I highly recommend this if you find a group of women who can get away - do it, even if you think i don't know them that well, guess what - you will bond and enjoy.
We were not enthralled with the race itself. Not making another trip for it, but we do want another race to travel to ??? any suggestions ???? for 2013.
I got Kristen Armstrong's Mile Markers before we headed down and I was amazed at how well she was able to articulate all that we runners feel, it was such a perfect book to be reading while i was on a runner race destination trip !!! I wanted to highlight every other sentence and read aloud to the ladies.
It felt like this NON judgemental, non caddy wonderful supportive place.
