One day, we ventured out on an excursion. Just a few more ways I kept active and moving...
Repelled into a cenote...
Ziplined through the Mayan Riviera jungle....
Snorkeled through a cave...Both Jeff & I were signed up for the AFC Half Marathon, so we squeezed in a few shorter runs on days it wasn't too hot. If you don't know about Mexico weather, it can be pretty warm!!! It was mid 80s-90s with 90% humidity. We were already pretty well trained but wanted to keep our legs loose and moving.
AFC turned out to be a mess for most people. It was 78 degrees at the start at 7am, and continued to get warmer and warmer. I felt really good up til mile 7, where I choked on some water at an aide station and proceeded to throw up. Luckily/unluckily it was all fluid and no food, so I had energy still but no liquids. Slowly, I sipped on water through the next few miles as I jogged along heavily. My friend Heather found me on the course and ran beside me, motivating me til the finish. I ran a personal worst, 23 minutes slower than my best time. Yikes. But truly, this race was meant to just keep me moving throughout the summer. And whether it was after a long day at work or during humidity on vacation, I kept moving.
