My #favoriterun

Amanda, MissZippy, recently (ok, maybe not THAT recently, I’m a bit late on this one) wrote about her favorite run and invited us all to follow along on her run and encouraged us to join in and show our favorite run. Lately, due to our problem with water at the house I’ve been running a different route a lot. This route starts from a beach park and is pretty straight, not too hilly and.. Pretty freaking hot. But I love it! Let me take you along on my favorite run at the moment:

Wild orchids to admire along the way.

Halfway point, let's turn around and go back towards the park (with a little detour..)

Heading back. Leaving Tsunami Evacuation Area, only to enter it a few miles down the road again.

Depending on how high the tide is, sometimes I pass by this marvelous spot.

Done! Back at the park and a shower/dip in the warm pond is awaiting!

Drive home post run, shower, swim and another shower! (Oh yeah, I had a swimsuit + towel on, promise!)

That ended up being a lot of photos from my favorite run as of now. This route could be everything from 3mi-9-10mi without problems and it’s my favorite because: 1. There’s more space for me on the road. Driver might still be freaking crazy around here, but at least I don’t have to jump into the jungle because of them. 2. There are hardly any dogs around, which I prefer as stray(?) dogs sometimes bothers me. A lot! 3. It’s peaceful and flat. The bad: 1. Roadkills. 2. It get’s HOT as there’s not much shade to be had. 3. Roadkills. Yep, this is where I’ve ran with eyes shut, puked and tried to break the world record in not breathing because of rotting pigs and dogs.

Interested in running here with me? Come on over, I’d love your company!
