Trail Running in the FL
I knew I’d be able to eek out some trail runs on vacation in Florida. The only sketch factor was the exotic bug/animal factor. Coming from up north it always seems more scary than the rare reality of encountering a water moccasin or feral pig (wha?). Florida can be a hot, humid, altered reality that freaks me out then I go to a preserve or state park &, bam, awesome. (FL has 10% of the lower-48 wetlands, wetlands cover ~30% of FL. I love wetland flora & fauna!)

Estero Bay Preserve is ~3.5 miles from my Mom’s & the map showed a few miles of trails so I could get away from the concrete sidewalks for awhile. The trails ended up being overgrown, flooded in places, & muddy. Also lots of churned ground from the feral pigs. The flooded areas were a little freaky due to gators but I just kept an eye out and sallied forth. I forgot all about the snake factor & didn’t see any. So a perfect adventure from water to mud to hard pan sand flats with the super bonus of running in just shorts & a t-shirt instead of my 5° layered runs back home. Fun!
