Sorry it’s been a while friends. This will be a quick blog as well. Just wanted to let you guys know that I signed up to “run” a half marathon! I know it’s crazy. I hate running! It’s hard! It’s scary! That is what I decided to do it! My friend Jocelyn and my husband will be doing it with me. I have a training plan that will help get me ready by January. Super excited. I started training last week, running a few miles here and there. However, this happened yesterday- WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGE!
My mangled toe.
Operating on my toe. Do not try this at home kids.
All wrapped up!
I fell into a small hole in my backyard, It was covered by grass and I simply was not paying attention. My left foot went directly into hole! I have bruises all up and down my left leg, and obviously a super sore toe. I swear this is JUST my luck!
In other news we had some work done to my powerboat. It is running beautifully. Here are a few ocean shots to get your mind off that mangled toe pic!
I am concentrating on my nutrition this week since obvi I am not working out. I will try to blog more often this week I promise!!
Take care of yourselves–
To celebrate my husband’s birthday we decided to take a trip aboard the Marathon Lady. She is a 73 foot fishing party boat. We decided to go on the 9:30am trip so we headed out early with our rods and sunblock. The boat goes all the way out to the reef and hangs out in 20-40 feet of water. They rent out rods, have beer and sodas, and a super helpful staff. The fishing wasn’t too hot, but we ended up catching a decent amount of fish. Christopher caught a few mangrove snapper and grunts. I caught a big eye torro fish and more grunts. You can pay the deck boys to filet up your catch and so we did. We ended up with a total of 18 fish, and over 2 lbs of fish filets. It was a great time. My only suggestion is to make sure you drink PLENTY of water. It was literally insane hot out there. Don’t forget the sunblock either!!
For the cost if was a good deal. 45 dollars a person. I think I would much rather prefer fishing on my own vessel though. Not enough room to cast, and too many people etc. It is a totally fun time though. Can’t find a nicer crew anywhere.
Today has been a excellent day so far. I am typing this from Burdines in Marathon. It is the yummiest place in the middle keys for a cheap awesome lunch.Little rainy, but still awesome.
Before we ended up here, we walked around Boot Key Harbor. It’s a marina in marathon. Here is what I saw.
On the way up to Marathon.
