I've now got 23+ miles of running on the beach and can confirm that running on the beach is no walk in the park... My hip and calf muscles are wicked sore, my feet have blistered in new and exciting places from the sand that sneaks into my shoes and even though I am running in the early morning the temperature and humidity are sucking the life right out of my stride.
The late nights, early mornings, hours swimming and frolicking in the surf and the truly incredible amounts of food and drink that we're consuming may also be taking a toll on my running performance. Don't ya just love vacation?
The surf is up and I have some bodyboarding to do. In the interim, here's a couple of photos:
