J is for Jogging

SDP  3-20-13
With a view like this, who wouldn't want to go jogging? Usually, I prefer shots of people coming toward the camera but I didn't really care for any that I took. Instead, I liked this one. Perhaps it has something to do with looking at where the joggers are going, rather than where they came from.  Anyway, this beautiful beach is on Sanibel island located on the Gulf of Mexico a couple of hours south of Sarasota.  It would be an understatement to say it's gorgeous and relaxing here. This year the entire SDP staff stayed on Sanibel during our annual whirlwind spring training baseball adventure (with a Michigan tourist who was thrilled to see the sun).  We ventured into nearby Ft. Myers for an evening Red Sox game as well as a daytime Twins game, since both teams are based there in the spring. And, we're getting word that the SDP Editor-in-Chief will be ordering another mandatory respite -- this one for the Sony Open on Key Biscayne.  Management!  I hope everyone has been doing well and I'll see you sporadically over the next couple of weeks.  In the meantime, I'm linking to ABC Wednesday.

Now that is a terrific view! Who wouldn't be invigorated, seeing this on their jog? I can almost smell the ocean.

We've spent many happy times on Sanibel...usually riding bikes up and down the island and over to Captiva!

Now, I want to go back! That sand has to be hard-packed to jog on it like they are doing. Was this taken up near the Captiva bridge?

love the view, but I prefer pavement for running!

Beautiful spot! I love how the colors pop on the runners.

That sunshine and water view has me longing for spring. . .the real one, which hasn't gotten here yet.

Snap! Just saw your comment and rushed over to see what you decided on. I must say, if I had the choice, I would opt for a jog in that sand and sunshine on offer at yours :). It is still freezing here!!!! Super photo!

This is one of my favorite places, too, SRQ. And Ding Darling and biking and Timbers. And spring training. Have fun on your time away.

Yup a favourite pastime of mine SRQ, except walking instead of running :)

Wish I could jog by the sea.
