beach ride

Recently I spent 11 nights down at Seacrest Beach in Florida on back-to-back extended family vacations (my family and my wife’s family).  While there I was able to get in three rides: one to Panama City Beach and back, one casual ride primarily along the bike paths (with my CX tires installed for durability), and one rain/lightning-shortened road ride to PCB.  I also was able to squeeze in my first two runs after a four-month hiatus….definitely need to run more as my running endurance has shriveled.

Below are some pics from my first ride, which was early in the morning.  Ride was only around 24 miles, but due to the crazy high humidity and the relentless heat I consumed two full water bottles.
