Subject: Where to run in St. Pete Beach?

I'm heading down this weekend and will be staying around 4000 Gulf Blvd.  My plan was to just run Gulf Blvd. but my mom is paranoid because she's been hearing stories about pedestrians getting hit and traffic being aggressive.  I just need a 7-8 mile out and back route (so really only 4 or so miles one way).  I'm working through some foot/ankle issues so road running is preferable (i.e. I can't do that many miles on sand).  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks!

If you head south you aren't far from the don Cesar. Once you pass the don you'll have access to some neighborhoods that are less trafficy than if you head north. Another option would be to head east on the pinellas bayway. The new bridge is steep but it has a wide pedestrian path with a wall between traffic. Once you pass over the bridge you can turn into isla del sol and that is traffic friendly. The causeway heading toward fort desoto is a bit tough on the joint if you are feeling tender

10 minute drive to ft Desoto park and the inside loop of the park (nice bike path protected from traffic) is about 9 miles. easy to get to from St. Pete Beach. I train out there all the time. If the tide is out, run down the beach on the firm sand.

good luck

This past spring I realized a few of us were heading in the wrong direction physically. We were getting together for poker games and kids’ birthdays, but that was it.

The triathletes really inspired me. I watched them in awe as childlike thoughts went through my head like, "I want to do that!" But then reality set in. “Who are you kidding?

I went down to the beach the day before to scout out the course, and it was glorious...the sun was out, the sea was as smooth as glass, and only a hint of a breeze was blowing. “Perfect,” I thought.

I’ve signed up to do the St. Anthony’s Olympic Triathlon in April. I will be 49 in May and need some advice on a good training program to fit into my full time work schedule.

As a triathlete, there is one acronym that you just can’t fathom ever having next to your name in a race report – DNF: DID NOT FINISH.
