6 Miles on the beach today. Wore my old shoes that need retired since I did not think it would be a good idea to just start barefoot running right now, even if it was the beach. It was good and well hard. Reminded me of my snow runs, hard (and well hot instead of cold)- yet amazing to enjoy God's creation this way. The workout was good with the resistance and running in the ocean afterwards was very enjoyable.

Nice run, and good call on the shoes, I've heard about people getting PF by running barefoot on the beach. Would be bad timing!

You have a beach in Ohio?

From Dan on Mon, Sep 12, 2011 at 19:26:22 from

Joe- my thoughts exactly on 'bad timing' Allie- Carrots = yes/ Hawaiian bread = post run ;) Yes... BIG... let's rock this from, what, 1000? 2000 miles? away. Burt- Yes, Ohio has many nice beaches on the great lakes. I am, however, in Florida- hot and very nice!
