We got a downpour last night. A loud, windy downpour. We needed it. The only bad thing about all the rain is that after a rain like that, the local trails are all closed. So, I woke this morning, pretty dang sure a trail run was out of the question. That was a-okay. I spent the morning with my husband and then with chores – groceries, scrubbing the bathtub, washing dishes, laundering, napping (yes, napping! ).
After getting the boys home from school, I took off out the front door for a cool evening run along the local beaches. Everything was clean and beautiful as it always is after a rain. The skies were bigger than usual, the clouds puffier. The ocean was a deep blue, the sand a rich brown.
Glorious. It’s a wonder I drive all the way to the mountains to run when I have this here at home.
