If you haven’t visited Run With It in the new Ft. Walton Beach location yet – go! And go prepared to run when you’re done checking out the new store. The new place is great – much larger, a lot more neat clothes and stuff. But the neighborhood can’t be beat. Lots of shops around, the Indian Mound across the street. The back door opens up to the park and the water- beautiful! Great karma and feng shui!
The Tuesday night running route from the new location is awesome. You run under the bridge, by the water and through beautiful residential neighborhoods. You can peak views of the water as you run or walk. You smell dinner grilling as you pass by neighborhoods – a great summer-is-here smell. There are huge live oak trees all along the way to admire. The sights, the sounds, the smells – makes the run a pleasure.
There is a 5K and a 10K route, and some of the group doesn’t even go that far. You will feel comfortable whatever your pace and difficulty. There is a run-walk group just starting out training. There’s something for everyone.
And when you’re done, you can cool off by walking through the park behind, by the water. And when you’re done cooling off – a cold brew awaits.
Or like me, you can bring your own wine and stick it in the fridge to cool down. Many of the runners have been running together for awhile, and it’s a supportive, fun group. The night I ran, we even celebrated with birthday cake.
And as always, there’s Jeff and Donna to help you with whatever your running needs, and to enjoy the brew with you. A great way to spend a Tuesday evening! Come enjoy the great camaraderie, and a great run.
