Florida - Key West - day 4

An absolutely beautiful course today.  A six mile stretch of the race took us along the coast line where at 7 am all you're seeing is ocean and sunrise.  It was great and took your mind off running for six miles as you took in the incredible views.  I even stopped at mile five to snap a picture.

I finished in 1:48:35 placing 177 overall (total race participants was just shy of 3,000).  My sister, brother-in-law, niece and friend were all at the finish line (and start) to cheer me in.  It was a great race.

Afterwards we headed to Havana Key West for brunch (and traditional Bloody Mary shot) before heading back to the cottage to prep for jet skiing.

We finished the day with dinner at Southernmost Beach Cafe & Bar.  It's a beachfront open air cafe that also happens to be the most southern restaurant in the United States, just 90 miles from Cuba.

A fun day with one more tomorrow before heading back to Miami on Tuesday.

More pics to come ...
