On Running In Fort Lauderdale: Pros and Cons

Where to begin? OK, 0945 and still time for a quick run before brunch with mom and dad. I am staying at my sister’s house and she lives in a lovely neighborhood right off of a golf course/club area. (they don’t golf, thank goodness). As my cup is perpetually half-full, I focused on the Pros, but alas, I must admit, there were some Cons…

Pro

Con

88 degrees, 90% humidity; incredible sweat

88 degrees, 90% humidity; incredible sweat!

Thick hybrid grass, lots of cushion provided for running

Chemicals being sprayed on thick hybrid grass; golf course watering in the morning, even though it rained overnight

Amazing blooming bushes and exotic flowers

Homeowners spraying more chemicals on amazing  blooming bushes and exotic flowers

Lizards, box turtles, and one long brown snake

Flattened snake in the road

Ibis, Egrets, Hawks, Blue Heron, unknown but lovely sounding songbirds

How do the birds and reptiles survive the chemicals?


Plastic water bottles along the grass and floating in the mad-made lakes


Being reprimanded by a dapper fellow in a golf cart to stay off the course, so they would not be “liable if you get hit by a golf ball”


A hot dog and soda concession, on a modified golf cart, cruising around the course


No pick-up-after-your-dog rule (guess how I found out??!)

A great workout!

“When I began to work with Robin as a client, she immediately recognized that my success involved more than treating issues relating to my heart. Her knowledge and caring has given me the opportunity and confidence to improve my overall health and mental outlook for the future. I have received excellent care from many doctors but what may be more important is that Robin has made me want to do more for myself.
