It will be beautiful running weather for a 10K (or 5K) race on the Skyway Trail in south St. Pete on Saturday morning. Temps will be mid 60s with 50% humdity and a 10-12mph wind.
I did early packet pick up and received this beautiful blue short sleeve tech shirt, a 14-day VIP membership to AnyTime Fitness, and a coupon for a soft serve ice cream cone at McDonald's.
The race gives participants a running tour of some of St. Pete's scenic treasures: Clam Bayou, the Skyway Trail, Twin Brooks Golf Course and the waterfront Marina District. It's a favorite race course for me. The basically flat course is on paved trails, sidewalks and roads.
Last year I watched Dolphins swimming in the bayou, and saw Ospreys in the tall mature trees in the Clam Bayou Nature Park.
The 2017 race shirt is a rich blue color with vibrant bright green images. Love it!
