I’m in Florida for vacation/race running this week and my dad noted that I have been slacking with the blog, so this post is for him. The weather is AMAZING. I’m staying with my mom and dad in their cozy condo and loving the weather. It’s been unseasonably warm here – today was a record high for Tampa – sunny, and clear. In other words, perfect weather for taking a walk with my mom. Clever readers will remember that my mom began walking around he neighborhood for exercise just over a year ago. Today, she’s walking 5-6 miles every day at a pretty brisk pace. So, we took her usual walk together. It was gorgeous. They live in a nice gated community with wide streets and palm trees. I love palm trees!
After the walk, we went to an area outlet mall where rumor had it there was a Lululemon outlet. To my complete joy, the rumors were true. The outlet had items that were on rack sale in the regular Lululemon store. I picked up another pair of my beloved Run: Back on Track Tights, some Run: For Your Life Shorts, and other miscellaneous items. I was hoping they might have a bag or backpack in store, but no luck there. I will continue my quest. I was super excited about my purchases and even insisted my mom take my picture outside of the store like a tourist.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough, I found a lucky penny. I love finding lucky pennies. But this was no normal lucky penny. It was a squished penny with a design. Surely that’s super lucky.
It’s a Road Runner penny. I will take it with me this weekend when I run in the Gasparilla Distance Classic. Yay!
