Happy Father’s Day! Fortunately today was my last day of an “easy” week. Granted “easy” in my training plan doesn’t necessarily mean easy. It simply means less mileage.
To lessen my time away from home this Father’s Day, I ran straight out my front door. That meant (gasp) . . . A ROAD RUN. Please do not think I have anything against road runners or road running. As I’ve written before, nowadays, I’m more a trail runner than I am a runner (if that makes any sense).
I admit, I had a delightful run. And I was sure to make it a hilly one. I got in some sand running, and a bit of trails too. I saw LOTS of other runners and ran through crowds of people. Also, the wind blew hard the entire six miles. Amazingly and rather hilariously, every direction I turned, the wind blew straight-on into my face.
Lots of steps to run up to get back to town:
