Beach Run

My mother-in-law is visiting this month and staying along the beach.  The other night after work I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and go for a run along the ocean and then stop in to hang out with her and Bryan for dinner.

MY RUN: this run was on much different terrain than I have run on in quite some time. I ran on packed down sand that was at a slight angle.
 It actually felt wonderful on my feet. The sun was just beginning to set and the weather was breezy and 80s.
 
As I jogged I saw a few people walking their dogs along the coast and others eating picnics by the shore.
This run was relaxed pace and painless again, thank God. It was the type of run that reminds you why you love the sport all over again.
Sometimes I get so caught up in work, house work, tasks, chores, etc. it was so refreshing to escape all of that for 40 minutes and appreciate the nature surrounding me.

 I ended up going about 40 minutes and just short of 5 miles.
The best part of this beautiful run?!?  I got to spend time with family afterwards! 
RE-FUELING: For dinner we ate lemon pepper rotisserie chicken, gazpacho, and a fresh salad with avocado followed by vanilla ice-cream with fresh strawberries.

We ended the night playing a game "Would You Rather' which was quite funny and light hearted.
A nice little evening mid-week.
