Back with Beach Pics Round 3

I finally remembered to upload the beach pictures from my camera! ¬†Gosh looking at them again makes me want to go back right now ūüė¶ ¬†But of course I’m happy I got to go at all! ¬†I can never get enough beach time.

Dad fishin’.

Brother Ben swimmin’.

Beach Pics Round 2

More beach pics coming now…these are the rest of the ones taken from my phone. ¬†Unfortunately I just figured out that I forgot my USB cord so I can’t get the ones off of my camera just yet. ¬†That will come later this weekend when we are back in NJ. ¬†So picking up where we left off…

Running in the sand is hard work.  Definitely slows that pace down a bit and my hip flexors were so sore the next day.  But how can I even complain when I got to run down a beautiful beach?  It was awesome.

Then the sad day arrived when it was time to leave…

And Maverick laid on me the whole time.

Mike took a picture of us passed out…yes I still have a stuffed animal, don’t judge me. ¬†If I don’t hold her Mav tries to eat her and that can’t happen! ¬†I look like a 4 year old.

Back in Durham, I knocked out a slowly paced 3 mile run in the scorching heat before showering and heading to Sushi Love with Mike for dinner.

Then Local Yogurt (LoYo) for dessert…cookies n cream with chocolate shavings on top. ¬†Tasted lovely on a hot evening!

Today my workout is going to be a 6 mile run, which is my “long” run on my marathon plan this week, and also which isn’t really that long at all but that’s fine with me. ¬†Also going to do a little somethin’ extra…been slacking on my strength work so definitely getting in something of that sort as well. ¬†Will all be up on the blog later! ¬†Hopefully I can think of something good ūüôā

Happy Friday!
