Port of call

I ran along the Seaport Village/Embarcadero area in San Diego this morning. Turns out I ran 2.7 miles in 24:04! Woo Hoo!

Running by the ocean just made me realize how much I miss living someplace where I can smell the sea when I step out the door. Don't get me wrong, running by the river is a lovely thing but the smell is different. To me a river doesn't smell alive the way the ocean does. The Canada geese are lovely creatures - and I certainly admire the beauty of them playing and landing on the water the way seagulls could never do, but it's just not the same.

I know I'm doing a lot of walking this week and tomorrow I plan on doing my laps in the hotel pool before I soak in the hot tub....
