With little time for a run this morning, I sat on the couch way, way too long before finally heading out the door for a quick run. The skies were gray and misty, my legs and mind a bit fatigued.
I began my run uphill and ran some more uphill after that, until finally I began a great descent down to a local beach called The Strands. I ran the sand, then jumped up onto the base of the cliffs where I took in the fierce ocean and petite sea creatures that live in the crevices and pools there.
From there I ran, up, up, up a series of steps then out to The Headland trail system. Time was fleeting (as usual) as I ran along Highway One. I arrived home with five minutes to shower and dress and get out to the car so that I could drive to a routine doctor’s appointment about 30 miles away. I did it in SIX. If only I moved so quickly when I ran.
Miles run this morning: 4.88 (7.85 km)
