Tampa Sunrises

Never take a single sunrise for granted.

Does this view ever get old?

This morning I was up early for a gorgeous morning run along the water. A friend of a friend (Charlie) is in town from London and wanted to see a bit of Tampa on her feet. So of course, I took her to my favorite stretch of sidewalk in all of Tampa.


It’s not a visit to Tampa without a run along Bayshore.

The stands, tents, and port-o-lets were already out for the upcoming Gasparilla Half Marathon, 15K, & 5K this weekend.  It’s a shame that the cold weather we enjoyed this morning won’t be sticking around for the races. It looks like it’s going to turn into another hot and humid Gasparilla.

Charlie won’t be sticking around for Gasparilla, she’s heading to Disney to run the Princess Half Marathon. I’m sad I’ll be missing the Princess Half again this year. Good luck to all the Princesses who will be running through the castle on Sunday. I have to stick around for the hometown race. 🙂

Ah! I thought for a second you were going to announce you were moving. Probably not for a looooong time now that you have a house 🙂

I’ve always wanted to do Gasparilla. The medals are usually really cute and I need 0 reasons to go to Florida in February. Have a good time!

Hi – My family is coming to Tampa early May! We are driving to Disney 1 day, but will be in Tampa for 2. What is a “Must Do” in Tampa? (Ages of kids – 4 and 9)

I’m so incredibly jealous of that beautiful sunrise! Nothing like that here in frozen PA.

I used to visit Tampa every month while my husband was working down there. I miss that stretch for running/walking, miss looking at the water, and miss Burger 21. Hahahahaha! 🙂

I am a firm believer that a girl can never have too many printed leggings in her wardrobe!

I laughed at the photo of you and Charlie. You can tell that she is from London with her tank top and you’re the Florida lady in your jacket.

Love running down Bayshore. Living in the Tampa Bay area (Valrico to be exact) I don’t take advantage of the area to run. I did the Gasparilla 15k and it.was.COLD! But I loved it! I was secretly hoping I’d see you, so I could have my “I saw a FAMOUS person” moment!!

Thanks again for taking me out to see a little of Tampa and for the best brekkie of our trip! I can’t stop talking about the french toast at Pinkys! So lovely to meet you.

God, the idea of a hot and humid race sounds so good right now! You can tell that I’ve been enduring the frigid temps of the northeast for too long 😉
