Well, we did it. Ran.
The plan was to run 15 minutes down the beach, turn and run back. My father-in-law routinely runs 10 to 13 miles, so him sticking with me was strictly a gift of charity.
I ran almost all of the 15 minutes out. Coming back, however, not so much.
The bad news: that was A LOT harder than I anticipated. Apparently when you don’t run AT ALL for like two years…well, it ain’t like riding a bike.
The good news: I looked like a tool, huffing and puffing several states away from home. And it was on a beach full of strangers in the evening. Location counts for something.
Now if I can do this again within the next two days I may be able to build myself a routine of some kind.
