At 8 am we set out on our 8 mile run under the clouds and drizzle.  We were all bundled up and ready for a damp and chilly journey.  Luckily, the wind was blowing in from the ocean, along which we ran parallel, so we didn’t have the added challenge of running into the resistant wind.  We kept the long run exciting by jumping over puddles and dodging muddy patches.

The ocean was choppy and uninviting, brown with runoff from the overflowing drainage canals.  By the time we got back to our starting point, our feet were squishy with water and our clothes were soaked and heavy.  Despite the cold, we enjoyed the adventure and happily headed home to get dry and cozy.
