Tough Run

My beautiful beach route has turned into an army-grade obstacle course. The dirt right after the train tracks has turned into slick mud. They put up a sand berm next to the beach that I need to claim. Then there are a million rocks on a beach that used to be smooth sand. It was dark out, and though the moon put out a nice amount of light there are other city lights that ruin my night vision. The tide was high enough to force me onto the bluffs, and in the dark I couldn’t quite find the trail I usually run. For the return route I took the road, which was even darker because of trees, and full of potholes. But I triumphed in the end.

Don’t forget to take your complimentary grain of salt on the way out.
