Fun in the Sun – Miami – Part II

Yesterday was a huge day and I feel like we fit in as much R&R and fun as possible. The first thing on my list was a run so that I could attempt to acclimate my body to this climate a bit for the race. I know I don’t have enough time to acclimate properly but I at least wanted to know how I was going to feel. So I went out about the time the sun came up and it was just a beautiful day.






I just ran/walked took some photos and just enjoyed the sights. I LOVED the performance of the Tough Chik tank in the heat. I never even noticed it was there which was a huge win. I also tested out a new (to me) product in the Mission Skincare line. They had a 5 hour anti-chafe cream that I compared to body glide. I am a body glide lover so was wondering how this would compare.


I used it the day before while walking around town and didn’t love it. So thought I better give it a try on a low intensity run. It goes on like paste, and it’s sticky. The stickiness doesn’t really go away. I didn’t chafe but just felt sticky. So I guess it “works” but I prefer the feel and texture of the body glide.

After the run, mom & I had a light breakfast and then spent several hours under an umbrella on the beach.

Then shopping, lunch and general sightseeing fun.



Now off to pick up my packet for tomorrow’s race.

  1. That’s awesome, Shannon! I am not a tequila drinker (can’t really handle the hard stuff!) but this was the “house” tequila for a cute little bar/restaurant @ 15th & Ocean Drive called Tequila Chicas. Couldn’t really pass up a place like that! I asked them if it was a local brand and I was told yes, possibly a slight exaggeration since I’m pretty sure you are in CA. Mom had a margarita and said the Milagro was good. Tell hubby we said “Hello” and good work! 🙂
