I was kinda worried about my knees hurting yesterday, and I was thinking... hmmmm... I wish there were soft surfaces I could run on.... and then boom! Duh Julia, you live next to the beach! So I spent 90% of my run on the trail next to the beach, running on the sand along the ocean, and any grassy/dirt patch I could find. I went sans iPod, and all I could hear was my own breath and the sound of the waves. It was the most relaxing run! There's something so tranquil about running alone on the trail; I feel like I just get lost in a trance, lost in the crashing cycle of the waves, lost in my breath, and lost in my thoughts. Sometimes I had to run really fast to avoid getting caught in the wave, and I had to run really slow in the sand, but it was soft, serene, and just what I needed on a Friday evening. And I'm super proud of myself for tackling 6 miles. Pain free, too. Hey 6 miles; you are no longer my long run! Booya!
I have to keep this brief, but I have some exciting things coming up next week. I will have a giveaway!!, and a couple of product reviews.
And guess what!!! I am kind of horrifically stoked and excited and tripping out over this, but I have a phone interview....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not going to disclose any details, and I don't want to jinx it, but I am so freaking overwhelmingly excited. If you have any good karma, or any phone interview tips, please let me know!!!!!!! Thanks for all the positive vibes you have been sending me lately! I owe you all one!
As for now, I'm off to swim, and then to the Greek Festival.
