Welp….I’ve gone and signed up for another race. This time it’s the “Beach Running World Championships” on Cocoa Beach here in Florida. Something about this race sounds so official, like oh yeah…”I’m competing in the world championships today”. I’ve only signed up for the 10K portion cause I did a beach run once with this girl and was all… this must be what it felt like for Artax in the Swamps of Sadness.
Then I look at my Daily Mile tracker in the sidebar and am faced with my training failure. Last run was only 3.2 miles and it was almost a week ago. My german daughter from germany gave me her germs which she picked up from the ice skating rink before we left for West Virginia and now a cold has been flogging my body every day since then. Such punishment!
You know what the best way to defend against a cold is? Coffee…and peaches..and the country. Or at least that’s what the The Presidents of the United States of America told me.
I love peaches but I can never find them ripe in the store and I have zero patience. Buying unripe peaches is like ordering something online and having to wait for delivery. It sucks. Well, my two peaches told me they were ripe today and so I sliced one of this bad boys up for breakfast.
I think fruit and I are going to become friends again.
What’s your favorite fruit? And have you ever run on the beach? Shoes or barefoot?
