Swell Weekend

This weekend a storm brought big waves. The surfers and boogie boarders were like happy labs out for a romp. I was happy to watch them from a safe distance on top of the berm (a sand dune that’s propped up by three weeks’ worth of bulldozing to hold the sea back each winter). The berm also serves the purpose of providing a slope for kids to saucer down – and a nice dirt path to run on. I did two miles on the beach yesterday. Then I ran inside to get my camera and these shots. Today is my last true rest day before I begin my half IM training. Like the waves above, my lazy days are about to come to a crashing halt. And I’m ready…as long as my coach doesn’t send me out in waves like these ;-)
