I have been away at a dermatology conference for the past few days but managed to fit a half marathon in this morning in Miami. The temperature was over 80 before we started, and (if you couldn't tell by my time) it was a relatively brutal, slow race. 

I had no intentions of really running this race for time, considering I am going to do a half marathon next Saturday in Nashville. Full race recap will be up in a few days. Until then know this: it was freaking hot and humid and the course was the opposite of picturesque. 

In the mean time, we have totally enjoyed the hotel where my conference is. The Harbor Beach Marriott in Ft. Lauderdale does not disappoint. 

Larry is soaking up all his new found free time. 

Our room had an amazing view with 2 (!!!) balconies. One that had a full table set and 3 chaise lounges. I felt like I needed to invite friends over. (But absolutely did not considering this is the first time in almost 4 months Larbear and I had time to relax together) 

Nice photog skills. Cocktails to celebrate half marathon #5 and the end of the conference. More details to follow, but for now I need to get back to my fruity drink. Happy Saturday!!
