Starting our destination wedding adventure right with a first morning beach and bridge run in St. Petersburg FL. I never thought I would be one of "those people", but running without hills is extremely doll. Running on the flat is like a constant hill that never ends because you have to continually push yourself forward without end. Without a big hill to tackle and a good recovery coming down, running is nowhere near as much fun! Florida is not the best running vacation location.
But... What they lose in challenging hills, they make up for with awesome bridges stunning scenery! I made this bridge the mid point for my morning out and back, so I stopped for a few minutes to take some pictures during the run. This something I love to do when running out of town. I'm on vacation, it doesn't always have to be about negative splits and good mechanics (although I did have negative splits on the way back haha), it's nice to stop and take in the sights.
