I was in a deep sleep when Matt woke up to exclaim: “It’s 7:30!!!!”
Apparently we had made a date with Larbs’s Matt to run before it got too hot.
Before I knew it I was jogging in the sand!!
Here are a few keys to running on the beach:
- Go in the early AM. The earlier the better.
- Wear a hat AND sunglasses. The hat is key.
- Wear tennis shoes and run close to the water.
- Go at low tide.
- Wear sunscreen.
I love the ocean at sunrise! Unfortunately sunrise was long past and we were hot. And it was HARD. But I had a good run.
I had intended on doing about 3 miles (since running in sand is hard!) but when we went to one pier and back we stopped for a breather in front of our house. I thought we were done! But the boys wanted to keep going, and if you ask my friends, you’d know that I am super competitive, so we ran onwards to the next pier.
Total beach miles: 5.1
I ended with a series of yoga poses in the sand. I thanked the earth for my gorgeous run with a little kiss in a chataranga.
Breakfast in a jar!
Matt made whipped banana chia seed cinnamon raisin oats and I put mine in a near-empty Honey Roasted Cinnamon jar with blueberries on top.
