Beauty can be found Everywhere, in Everything

I'm becoming a lazy blogger as you can probably tell lol. Life is so busy right now but I'm trying to fit everything in. I'm realizing though, that sometimes it's okay if you can't fit it all in or make it all work. I'm realizing that the bigger picture means fitting in the things that really matter, the things that really make you happy.
There's a bridge in the city where I go to school that crosses over the inter coastal. Not far from it is a gorgeous little marina park. It's one of my favorite places ever and I love spending time just looking at the water and feeling the florida breeze. I also love running the bridge. I hadn't done it in months and I finally had time this past friday.
I was so excited! I got there at about 10 am and it was still quite chilly out. About 55 degrees, but sunny still and the water was gorgeously blue.
I had a great run althougth the wind was challenging me and the cold air can be tough on the lungs but I was simply in awe by the water and weather that it didn't matter.
I ran about 2.5 miles at a pace of about 10 min/mile.
View from the top of the bridge= Gorgeous
Afterwards, I went into a local gelato shop and lucked out with them having bottled water and fresh squeezed grapefuit juice, squeezed right here in town! It was delicious!
I sat for a while before finally heading out. It was so nice to just enjoy the little things while getting in a great workout at the same time. I think i'll go again this friday!
Where is your favorite outside workout spot?
