Key West Weekend Day 1

Location: Marathon, FL (High 81, Low 63)

Well, it’s here – it’s RACE weekend! Our day started off with a quick trip down to Marathon to pick up a rental car. We noticed the Enterprise sign at the airport here a couple weeks ago and decided that it would be easier for traveling to Key West this weekend, as well as making it simpler to park in a crowded town with all the other race participants. After a short wait, Harry was leaving with the car and coming back to the campground to pick me up for the hour long ride over to Key West.


After arriving and parking the car, we walked to Duval St, where the first order of business was lunch! We ate at Fogarty’s, which we had enjoyed a meal at several years ago when we were vacationing here, and it was just as good today as we had remembered.



We had a great spot for people watching from our table.






After lunch, we walked to the area for packet pickup.





There seemed to be a good number of people standing in line, but we were only there for a few minutes before we were giving our names and receiving our race materials.




These are going to be cool mile markers to be watching for tomorrow morning!





















Tomorrow morning at 5 am we’ll be heading back to Key West for our race which starts at 7 am!
