A few km's into todays run I saw the white beaches and bright blue water from one of the many bridges I was running across; the pelicans watching the fishermen, the fishermen watching for fish - and the fish beeing in the water. I fealt an urge to spend a little time in the water myself !
Last time I was running along the ocean and had a dip' in the waves was in Norther Peru, approximately 6000km of running ago. I chewed on the option an hour or two and decided to let it be a light 'restday' and finish the run at 32km's. Quickly logged the gps-data, did the logbook and off to a motel right by the ocean :-)))
Tomorrow it looks like I'll have company during the run. Also this is quite a while ago so I look MUCH forward to that !!
And I am fairly certain it wont be a restday as far as the miles is concearned..
