God, I love to run!
Yesterday I got the chance to run up Torrey Pines Reserve, up and down all the trails, then run back along the beach to 21st street where Henri and the kids were playing in the ocean. It was about 10 miles and it felt phenomenal.
As you can see it’s a steep incline and it used to kill me to run it. What struck me yesterday was how easy it was for me to do. I think all the weight lifting really helped my strength.
Oh God, I love to run! After making it up the hill I ran through the pine trees
until the clearing opened onto nothing but blue sky
And crystal blue ocean
God it was beautiful. There was a symphony for my senses.
The sea was as blue as my son’s eyes when he is laughing.
A faint scent of jasmine filled the air
The melodic crash of waves breaking was like music to my ears
The taste of the salty ocean air was invigorating on my tongue.
