I have been really sore the past few days. Thursday’s beach run sparked some right hip/back pain, so I took it easy on Friday. Yesterday (Saturday) I was in Redondo Beach for a friend’s bridal shower, and this was my view. I packed clothes to run and you can bet I rushed down to the beach after the shower to try running along the sand. My body just kind of gave up about 5 minutes into it and I ended up hiking as far down to the left side of this shot as I could–I wanted to get to the rocks near the houses, but there were too many gnats/flies along the beach where the seaweed/kelp had kicked up onto the shore. The wind also picked up and the sand started blowing into my legs, so I thought it would be a good time to head back to the car and go home.
There’s just something about the sea that makes you want to dash about in happiness. Or it’s just me.
