We are enjoying a long weekend at the beach this weekend. It’s so nice to be curled up on the sofa blogging on a Sunday evening in the beach house and not be at home running around trying to get organized for the next week.
It was really windy here on both Friday and Saturday. We missed the big surf on Friday, but went down to the beach on Saturday morning to see what was left of the wild waves. They weren’t as big as I’d hoped to see, but there were a lot of them and they were breaking way out. I can’t imagine being on or in the water with it that rough.
This morning I ran the Outer Banks Half Marathon. It was a perfect morning for running: cool, sunny, and not at all windy. I didn’t train for this event other than doing my normal six mile run in the woods a few times a week. I intended to prepare by doing several long runs during September and October, but it didn’t happen. Even without proper training, I felt great and ran a consistent pace. I was glad when it was over, but I could have continued running if need be.
I missed this super star but Mr. SP saw him and snapped a photo. Can you imagine running 13 miles in this??
