Easy pace with a half dozen 1/4 mile pickups 7:05 - 7:25 pace . Overall pace for run was 8:36 ... on trails & beach at LKSP

Trails and Beach miles sound fun but I know they are hard!

It's amazing for as long as I've lived on the west coast of Florida, that I hadn't heard of LKSP before you wrote about it.

Then I did a bit of research. And since my wife and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this May - Guess where we're going?

I would say we should get together for a run on Lovers Key, during my anniversary weekend, but that just sounds too weird...

I'll see you at the Gator Wilderness races in April.

Preston, the sand is very hard packed on trails .... & pretty firm on this particular beach as well, so not typical 'sand' running, but definitely soft surface which my aging body likes. Seems like everytime I get back on pavement, I am faster too. :)

Tom, you & your wife will love it, it is my favorite park. There is a 5k there May 11 ... which I will do unless I am on my way to Colorado. Technically, my 4 month lease is up end of April ... but I would like to throw down a sub 20 on my home turf training ground before heading west!
