Good morning Kapparis!!

Good morning Kapparis!!

Good morning lovely running family!! So Friday should have been run day...glands up felt a bit meh...am on holiday after all! Yesterday....ummm think maybe one cocktail too many night before so really not feeling urge to run. This morning I was determined to get out there before it got too warm, so 7.15 off I trot. Decided I would do the 20 min one rather than try for 30, was already 21 degrees! Brisk walk up one side of the Main Street, time to start running...cocktail gremlins are screaming at me wtf are you doing??? Shut them up carry on down the other side of the street, then take a right down towards the beach. Few dog walkers and a couple of runners...obviously locals judging by the speed of them!! 😂 was really enjoying myself 15 minutes done says Mr Smooth...oh, ok maybe could have done more, but not to worry, am now at the beach with 2 mins to go , so finished those now time to take in the view before my walk back to the villa. a fantastic start to the day, off to the pool now!! All by 8am. Happy Sunday peeps!!

  • What a beautiful picture I love this time of the morning and well done you on holiday and running 👍🏃🏼‍♀️🎉🍸

  • Well done Polly! And what a beautiful place to run - colour me jealous! Enjoy your hols. 🏖

  • What a lovely run report and a fabulous view. Lucky you. I love running on holiday and in different locations. Well done for kicking out those cocktail Gremlins 🍸🍹. It's amazing how gremlins can follow you anywhere.

    Enjoy the rest of your holiday, and I hope you feel a little self righteous today knowing that you've already got in a run. 😃

  • I do totally..feel like I’ve earned my sit on the beach, am still exercising...swims etc...so all good maybe a brandy sour with dinner!! 🍸

  • Great run Polly, tourism running at its best🏃🏼‍♀️😃

  • Oooh, I’m going to Kapparis in August. What’s it like for running? From the pictures, we seem to be staying up an enormous hill but I’m sort-of hoping I might be training for something so ridiculous I can’t even bring myself to say it by then...so I’ll have no choice but to keep running...

  • Hahaha well the run I did was fairly flat all the way!! Can’t think where the big hill could be!! Will be good training for you then cos August will be baking hot!! We were here early July and was 38!! Make sure you go to Faliros for a meal my stuffed chicken was delicious!! 😜

  • That’s good to know - I think I’m going to have to get up insanely early to avoid the worst of the heat. I’ll be sure to make a note of Faliros - you’re making me hungry! Let me know if you have any other recommendations, especially about running routes (but stuffed chicken also very welcome!)

  • Hahha will only have max of one more run as Home weds 😢 but will see what is around. What is the name of your resort? May be able to go have a look see

  • Can’t remember - I’ll ask hubby when he gets home as he booked it. My mum is in Nissi on honeymoon at the moment and the photos look fab.

    Enjoy the rest of your holiday and your remaining run. Well done for keeping it up while you’re on your hols too xx

  • Looks beautiful Polly2810 ...from trainers to flip flops all by 8am now that deserves an extra cocktail or two in my eyes!!! Happy holiday 😉 happy Sunday 😉

  • Wowzer. That’s quite the view!

  • Yes it was well worth getting up early for!!
