Driving down to Myrtle Beach this weekend for my annual college buddies drinking/badminton extravangaza reunion weekend, I asked my friend who's place we were staying at... "So, are there sidewalks around the roads?"
"Well, I need a place to run."
"Why? Why don't you just run on the beach?"
"Because, running on the beach is hard... and there's the sand to deal with, and the water."
"Why don't you run barefoot?" (another friend chimed in)
"Ughh.. I'm not running barefoot."
"Well, running on the beach is really good for you."
So, I ran on the beach. And you know what? It was pretty cool, actually. It definitely works your legs out a lot more than just regular running. Between that and the wind, I got fatigued pretty early, but I managed to run on the beach Saturday and Sunday morning. 4 miles both times. No knee problems during either run, so I'm hoping that I've shaken that.
Now... my weekend in pictures...
