I'm not sure how it's possible, but apparently I haven't ran Alki Beach, one of my favorite running locales, since September 2, 2011. I've been here plenty of times to hang out in the past year but according to my running log, today ended a 351 day dry spell.
I parked a ways from the prime sandy beach area, packed Baby F into the jogger, loaded it down with blanket, toys, snacks, and water, then ran us into the beach where we met up with playmates. The tide was out so we were able to wade out quite a ways to dig in the sand and mud. Awesome! When we were done, we got packed up again and ran back to the car.
Total distance = 3.5 mi (30:02)
Temp = 82 degrees
Love this heat!
Plantar fasciitis = Yes, still some pain. Cortisone shot #2 on Monday.
Because we've had such a mild summer, I've been really enjoying this "hot spell" we're having. Even running in the heat is feeling good to me! I like the super sweat factor it adds and so grateful to finally have a tan line (it's mid-August after all!).
Have a good weekend everyone!
