A Day at the Beach

It's February. It's Maine. Why not go to the beach?

Admittedly, I wasn't feeling completely fresh after yesterday's run, so I wanted to take it easy today. I wanted to get the blood moving, but I didn't want to do a whole lot. With the ski conditions being what they are, I wasn't too psyched to spend the time & energy waxing for a short ski. So, a short run it was. Of course, since we had the day off together, D and I did what we like to call a "destination run." Today's destination was Morse Mountain in Phippsburg.

Morse Mountain is an up and over to the beach. About 2 miles one way. After a brief "detour" en route (I got us lost.), we were shocked to see other cars in the parking lot. I would have been shocked with one car, but there were six. The road over Morse Mountain was a mixed of packed snow and ice. Screws shoes were essential, and even with them it was still a bit sketchy. We ran easily and just enjoyed the views, which were awesome. My legs were tired, but overall, I felt good. A great afternoon in Maine!

That's a great beach! I may have to do a beach run this week as well.
