After a long and cold winter up here in Canada, I knew that I wanted to take full advantage of the warm weather while I was in Siesta Key, Florida. Before I left for the trip, I looked up different fitness events and classes in the area to see if there was anything that sparked my interest.
Right away I saw something that was up my alley...
started running last spring, but I already love the feeling of going for one. I'm not a fast runner by any means, but I keep on going anyways!
I started my run on the beach and then made my way back through the neighbourhoods. I saw so many things that I would never see at home! - sandpipers running along the beach, hula girl dolls along kitchen windows, little lizards running across the sidewalks, boats coming in through the canals. There was no shortage of things to keep me interested! This is one of the great motivators for taking a run while I'm on vacation - you'll always see things you won't see at home. Plus, running shoes are just about one of the easiest things to toss in your bag and you can do it just about anywhere.
Being on vacation with my siblings also meant that I wanted to take the time to do some of my exercising with them too. We ended up renting a few kayaks for $25 each and headed down to Turtle Beach.
Another form of exercise that is great to do on vacation is going for a bike ride. Not only to your get to fit in a little heart pumping action, but it also gives you the chance to explore the area that you are visiting.
In honour of my vacation, this week's playlist theme is full of beachy songs. The perfect motivations to gear up for bikini season!
