We moved here from the Tampa area in 1996 – Undoubtedly for Cocoa Beach Public Schools. But as runners and triathletes, the wide, flat 9 mile stretch of hard packed sand and Olympic sized swimming pool are an undeniable bonus! Staying at the 16th street north beach side motel while meeting with area realtors, we would enjoy a morning run. One morning we met another running couple that invited us to an Iron Man party to send off other local triathletes. We had a major circle of friends before we bought a house. Thank you Bernie and Patti, you welcomed us home!
