This morning I headed out early and ran through the neighborhood, then decided to head to the beach. The beach portion of the run was spectacular. I loved it so much I found myself grinning ear to ear. At one point I threw my hands up and in the air and gave a whoop! I couldn't help it! It was one of those amazing runs that make me glad to be alive. I ran on the beach for about three and a half miles before I realized that I had passed my turn around point and would be adding extra mileage to my run. At first I was a little bummed because I thought I might have added about two to three miles to my run and even thought about getting a ride, but by mile eleven I was happy about it and kept on keeping on. It turned out I only added one and a half miles, which isn't so bad. I ran on the beach for about 7 of the 13.5 miles I ran. I wish I could run on the beach every day!
Good morning sunshine!
Peaceful, quiet and oh so beautiful!
Can you see my happiness?
It warmed up so much that I took my (long sleeved) top off. Many of the locals were wearing long sleeves, sweatshirts and coats. I got a lot of strange looks.
I'll miss the sunshine and waves. Time to psych myself up for some fun snow runs!
