It has been a whirlwind the last 10 days and so instead of typing out all of my activities I thought it would be better to post pictures of Esther’s and my trip to Florida. Originally, I was slated to race the inaugural Run Nona 15k in Orlando but my stress fracture changed those plans. Esther was still on board to run the race as well so we decided to make the trip and then spend a few days in Florida relaxing and recovering….well relaxing as much as two athletes can. Enjoy!
My outfit for the ZAP Holiday Party at Bistro Roca in Blowing Rock. Arguably some of the best money I’ve ever spent.
Esther winning the Run Nona 15k on Saturday evening!
Dylan Hassett, Nicole DeMecurio, and Esther post-race. Dylan was 2nd, Nicole was 3rd and both run for Greenville Track Club Elite in SC.
Track Shack in Orlando was the main sponsor of the 15k. Elite Athlete Coordinator Chris Hughes did an incredible job of taking care of everyone.
Esther and I took a visit to the Track Shack store and she got in a quick run with Joanie and Galloway.
Central Florida YMCA Aquatic Center. 24 lanes plus a section for diving. Not a bad place to cross train!
Esther kept this cross training session fun. Her kick board skills were quite entertaining.
We took a tour of Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. It was incredibly beautiful! (HPU watch out!)
National Training Center in Clermont, FL. Another beautiful place to get in a workout.
