Solo Beach Runner
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I know the stores are crazy and the bars will be packed tonight. Since I don't want to participate in either( I might have to go to the store so I can cook and eat), I could at least run this morning.
My plan was to have a long run but the wind, not being properly dressed, and running along the beach cut that short.
Then I was the only person running on the beach. It was weird. A weirdness of quiet and being solo. Was everyone sleeping in, traveling, shopping, or just not coming out because of the cold.
Was I being smart or stupid to run along the beach the day before thanksgiving? Who knows? I did it, put in fours miles and no one got hurt and life kept moving. :) .
