Ft Myers Beach, not too far away, but just right for what we needed. Of course once we got to our destination, our gracious hosts Dave & Tina immediately showed us the stocked outdoor fridge. My first beer was opened and gone before the car was unloaded. Maybe my first two beers. You see where this is going.

There was sun, fun, beers, drinks and great company to be had! Somewhere I lost count, or maybe I never started counting quite how many drinks I had, but it didn't matter. After a fantastic grouper sandwich and fish tacos, it was back to the house, to lounge in the pool for a bit before deciding where to eat yet again.
I had nothing to do with it
Sunday came, again no alarm clock was set, but we were ready to go. We had talked about running, and got going. It was Kari's first run in over a month. Twenty minute rehab rub, easy pace, just get out there and feel the Florida sun and humidity. Actually felt really good!

The perfect getaway, to get ready for a long season of training. It must have worked. Monday, I had some technical difficulties with my alarm clock, but woke at 5:00am ready to teach my spin class! I even think I had a smile on my face at the gym.
My Ironman training plan begins in earnest Monday May 20th, for what will be 24 weeks of intense, soul-searching, gut wrenching, push my body to its limit, training and racing.
The batteries are recharged, IRONMAN, here I come!
