Running last night it hit me: I’ve been home for almost two months (save a quick trip to Boston, meetings in DC and a weekend at the beach in North Carolina). After traveling for the entire month of June, being stateside this has been both unexpected and welcome.
There is something magic about being seaside in the summer – maybe it’s simply the proximity to water. Our favorite trail ends at the bay – the ideal place to recover. After work we hop on our beach cruisers and bike to the bay – the perfect punctuation between the office and a summer evening. On Friday nights we order takeout (or we did until our long runs got really long, now we have pasta) and head to the beach to eat and watch the sunset.
I’ve got 16 miles on tap tomorrow morning. Afterwards, I fully intend on taking advantage of everything a seaside summer has to offer – there are plans to kayak, steam clams, make ice cream and relax at the beach. Wishing you a long weekend full of the your favorite summertime things.
