I’m back home! The East Nashville hills were here to greet me. And so was Anthony! My flight arrived late last night and we were both half asleep when I got home. So, it was nice to catch up over some miles this morning.Four easy miles in the books. After a day of travel my legs were a bit beat. Also, my ears haven’t un-popped since I got off the plane… is that unusual? I suppose I’ll have to put the world on mute today and I’m okay with that.
Going back in time to my final moments in South Walton: Here’s yesterday’s gorgeous run! I even did about half a mile on the beach — which was beautiful, but so freaking difficult. Does anyone else wimp out when it comes to beach running? I haven’t recovered since we ran on Mexico’s beaches during our honeymoon. For this run I drove up to Deer Lake State Park, which connects to the beach. The park is smaller than the other parks in the area (a little less than a full mile of trail space) but it’s one of the prettiest! As you can tell from the foot prints, I was the first one there Six miles in the books! I haven’t done anything over five miles in maybe a week, so it felt nice to go long-ish. BTW I have no idea how I ever ran a marathon.Later in the day I got to hike around Grayton Beach State Park. Starting in the sand dunes…And ending up in the forest! Love the diversity of this park. If you’re ever in South Walton this place is a must-see. And of course you have to see Seaside.We were staying just down the street from this hip little neighborhood. A nightly stroll for snow cones was just too sweet to pass up 😉Time to get back in the normal swing of things! Time to throw in a load of sandy laundry and get my life back on track.
- Running in sand: yay or nay?
- Do you call them snow cones, shaved ice, or snow balls?
- Any tips for overcoming weird airplane-pressurized ears?
