Earth Day 12K, Clermont Florida
What a beautiful day in Florida for a 12K. Well, at least I said that for the first 6 miles. Then it got hot. Then I stopped noticing the beautiful scenery and looked for the nearest water station.
I found this race near Lake Louisa State Park where we decided to do some camping. The race circumnavigated Lake Minneola in downtown Clermont. Clermont is known for races, especially triathlons. In fact during this weekend of the 12k they had a 5K, a triathlon and a half marathon. Fit folks in Clermont.
The race was relatively small but well-supported. Great shirts and medals along with plants awarded to first, second and third place in every age division. Earth Day afterall.
After the HOT race we drove to Alexander Springs. Central Florida is filled with natural springs and this one did not disappoint. Some cool swimming and then back to our campground.
It was a nice weekend. A great race. Quiet time with the family. All boxes were checked this weekend on things I’d like to accomplish.
