|Get ready legs and Mizuno!!|
This past Sunday I made a last minute decision ( with a little peer pressure from Lori and Sandra ) to run in the 31st YMCA 5 mile race...I started with a 4.5 mile warm up run from my parents place in Fenwick to Bethany then the hubby picked me up and we drove to the race. It was humid but not awful like it had been. I really did not have a plan or goal for this race and my Garmin also decided to not work AGAIN!!!! I think it may be time for a new Garmin...I love the laid back feel and energy of the beach running community. Everyone is so supportive and friendly down here which really makes running fun! This race started at Deauville Beach in Rehoboth which had plenty of parking and clean port-a-pots (bonus!)...also with the race entry fee you had beach access all day and could run down and hop in the cool water right after the race! The race course was great...you start out on Surf Ave. then you run right back through a beautiful neighborhood with plenty of shade before heading back out on to Surf Ave. then you dip back into a neighborhood again, loop around and come back for a straight away down Surf Ave. and finish back at the start....There were 3 water stops on the course and plenty of water and Gatorade at the finish along with pancakes, bagels and fruit! I finished 4th overall female and 1st in my AG....

After the race we gathered up the boys and spent the day on the beach...Oh hello there 6 pack!
The ocean water felt amazing on my legs...I am so spoiled by the beach life!
