About Me:

About Me? Well, I have decided to throw my myself into the vulnerable atmosphere of online blogging. Why? Because as a born-n-raised southern girl, I’ve moved to the foreign country of Miami, FL with no friends, no espanol, and only a job to concern myself, I figured it might be fun to share my experiences. I’ve always wanted to prove I can do things on my own and here’s my chance. I like idea of blogging for a couple reasons. I want to share, and boast a tiny bit, but for the most part, I need the outlet since Im living alone, far away from the comfort of my Atlanta neighborhood. SO pardon the not-so-eliquently written wave of good & bad updates, Miami-themed what-have-yous, and a few expected pictures - all that will essentially tell the story of how I am learning to live on my own. A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones Proverbs 17:22

Okay ladies... It's time to slip on those running shoes and get to work. (Besides Amp who seems to always be training anyways). Renee and I were discussing a road trip run, other than nashville... and clearly it feels like the MOST fun we could have is running our hearts out and being able to relax afterwards on THE BEACH. So, pending Carole's report of what the weather is like in January on Southbeach, and if she agrees to let us pile into her living room, I think we should think about signing up for this. 

Plenty of time to save up for flights and to train (much needed). WHO IS IN?????

Can you give me some information on how the weather in Miami is during the month of January? Specifically, can you enjoy some beach time in your bathing suit? Thanks.

Hola! In the sunny state of Florida, January is the start of what many locals call Snowbird Season. This is a term for many northerners who venture to the warm tropical climate that defines south Florida to escape the chilling cold winters of their home state. Miami is the ideal location for snowbirds to spend their winter holidays/weekend half marathons. 

Based on one year of experience, January proves to satisfy the snowbirds cravings as well as offer optimal outdoor running conditions for long distance workouts. With temperatures averaging in the mid to high 70's, no likelihood of hurricanes, and afternoon thunderstorms are close to non existent, the only consideration when deciding to come to Miami in January or not is ....

...whether or not it's too close to the Tour de Cure. Ok ok, It will still be like a month away but thats only four weeks of trying to make sure everything is scheduled and perfect and the time and effort it takes simply to train for the half marathon, then having to stress about hosting 8 people for a weekend, may be a bit too much. Eee! But it sounds so fun! But that was my initial thought. 

My second thought is that this sounds REALLY fun and I'll prob need to be exercising anyway, and that this year during the half marathon, I was driving to church that morning, missed it by being stuck at the intersection blocked for runners, so I turned around, rode my bike to Walgreens, came back home and ... Idk, crafted or sewed something. This makes me think YOU'RE Soooo young! .... Not the sewing part, bc duh, but that I am in Miami, I can handle visitors, I can get your help to host, I need to live it up, and I'll actually be fine if I stop being such a stick in the mud. I need to be a stick in the sand,.. The sand on the beach! Yay! 

Ok, I'm in!

Ing, make me skinny and young again! 

So now that that's decided, the truth is that it might be a little chilly on the beach. Bathing suits might only be an option when the breeze is low and the sun is at its peak. Still worth it though. Bring your cover ups, Books, mags, margs, and cheez-itz to take care of the rest of the time.
