I was sad I’d be missing out on my running club’s Jingle Bell Run so I convinced my friend, Dulce, to run and check out the holiday lights the week before our club’s run. It was the perfect way to kick-off all of the holiday fun runs and races!
The houses in the Naples area in Long Beach really do it up for the holidays!
Dulce and I ran and got to catch up on things. I hadn’t run with Dulce for a while so it was nice to see what she was up to. We always chat about our upcoming races. Dulce is a beast when it comes to racing!
We chatted with a parrot at this house! He said, “Whatever!”
This gentleman told us about the boat they were building that would be powered by pedaling! Wow!
We walked in the Naples canal and just enjoyed the holiday lights.
We ran back afterward and got in a good 4 miler. Running, celebrating the holidays and running with a friend is truly a wonderful thing. I’m really grateful for it all. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season running, eating and celebrating!
Your path, your pace, Tam
