Shift Local Travel Edition: Miami

We are celebrating Marc’s 30th birthday in Miami (and Orlando) this week.  One of our favorite things to do when we travel is making time to squeeze in a run because it gives us a chance to sight see while burning some calories:


Running on Miami Beach Boardwalk


Classic car on Ocean Drive


Art Deco buildings on Ocean Drive



Taking a break 


Post-run juice at Under the Mango Tree on 6th St.

It’s a great way to discover an unfamiliar city and it definitely helps us feel less guilty about our caloric adventures.

I already know that at the rate we’re eating, we’re going to have to up our “fitness” game when we get back home. Marc discovered and signed us up for the March 9, 2014 City Beer Run (the day after we come back from our trip) which combines our passion for running and our love of beer.   We’re super excited to join them on a 5k run.  If you’re free and would like to join us, let us know!

If you can’t make Sunday, they are also doing a run on Thursday, March 6 (while we’re out of town) at ARM.  After the run, ARM will be providing BBQ and 10% off all merchandise.  Please see City Beer Run’s FB page for more information.

Love Mari
