I love early morning runs that involve sunshine, the ocean and my sister! We spent the night in Carmel between school and retirement center outreach performances and were fortunate to have the morning free to go for a run. Once we both woke up, we opened the doors to our adjoining rooms as we got ready to run, then walked down to the beach. We began running on the beach, then up the steps back to the beach path and were both exhausted within the first five minutes! Once on the beach path, our pace steadied and we got caught up in chatting about upcoming races and life. (She’s about to put her name into the NYC marathon lottery!) We ran to the next beach and turned around just before running down the big hill. Once back to the other end, we enjoyed the beach view for a few more minutes then walked back up to our hotel. What a great way to begin the day… now off to brunch!
