Everybody needs a spring break right? Just because we aren't in college anymore doesn't mean we shouldn't get some beach, frosty beverages, a tan, and some sunshine? I wish it still worked that way. Getting old sucks! Either way I had my little piece of spring break in Panama City Beach. Amidst heavy half IM training, I definitely needed a change of training scenery and figured a little sunshine/beach time wouldn't hurt.
I headed to PCB to spend the weekend with one of my favorite spring breakers and girly triathletes:
Then the real spring break began! The day was topped off with some beach time and then official adult beverages. I'm not going to lie... I did feel pretty old amongst a bunch of 20-something year olds. Either way both Chloe and I were rocking our bikinis way better than the college girls were rocking their freshman 15. I'm thankful for that ;)
Despite our attempt to hang, we were both done after one cup of frozen daiquiri and after a few free samples. Rookie mistake.
The next day Chloe and I woke up super early to rock out our long runs. Our long run was a very educational for sure. We learned a lot of spring break lessons. A few include:
-If you get super drunk and your friends can't find you and you have no idea where your hotel is.... the beach access makes for an AWESOME place to sleep:
And that is a wrap of 2 days of solid training and spring break! Definitely not the spring break I used to have, but not bad for being a thirty-something weekend get away right? I'll take it :)
