Last year I called my swimming challenge "Getting the Tiki Oasis Body" .
My attempt at shedding some extra pounds by swimming them away in the pool... It was very effective...as well as Producing a good summer tan from the miles and miles of swimming.........Since then I've shed many extra pounds --by pounding the pavement during the winter months that were too cold to swim unless you are a Penguin.... Now that Summer has begun I've hit the pool again on top of my running......I thought it would be fun to gather info for a couple of blogs at once......My Death of He Fat blog (that details my weight loss) and my Pineappleman Tiki blog........So this week I went on a Tiki Run....With camera in hand I left the Chowen Beach resort (folks place) and headed for a good 7 mile run (with camera in hand ) down the beach to the end of the Peninsula and winding my way through some of Belmont Shore.....The goal: Burn some calories and document some Tiki's/ and Beach style living of the area
The Run begins heading down the hill from The Chowen Beach resort past the mighty 60 foot palm
A Reminder to hit the pool after my run --did 1.5 miles in the pool
Cool Palms on a gateway on the way to the beach
