First attempt at a run after being sick most of the week. Went ok. Worst part was all the hidden black ice areas on the river trail, thankfully nobody slipped and went down.

Running round and round on the Carnival Mardi Gras in the sun just outside of Cozumel. A bit toasty for January but no complaints 👌:)

Very tough miles around the Mardi Gras short track on a warm and very humid morning in Roatan. But the island is beautiful so didn't mind just did lots of walking.

First run since early in the month since we've been in Europe most of the month. We did walk probably on ave 8 or 9 miles a day on our Danube river cruise but no running.

Felt a bit sluggish as would be expected. Need to lose some weight.
