One of the best parts of my Miami getaway last weekend was taking advantage of the gorgeous weather. My first morning there I woke up early and went for a brisk walk along the ocean. Feeling the sun on my face, seeing the waves, and being surrounded by other runners, walkers, bikers, and inline skaters was super-energizing. I felt so fit and happy afterward that I popped into a surf shop and bought a polka-dot bikini! I'd never even tried a two-piece on before, so this was huge for me. As I lounged on my beach towel in the suit that afternoon, I marveled at how confident I felt. I'm in the best shape of my life, and it shows!
