We made a good decision to run Wednesday this week instead of Thursday. There was a nasty thunderstorm around 6 am today! It felt great to sleep in and we are looking forward to “Fun Run Friday.”
Friday we run one of our favorite routes, Croatan. It is a route that takes us south and through the Croatan neighborhood in VB. We meet a little earlier, 5:20 am, because the route is approximately 6.25 miles. This is perhaps the only day that we don’t find ourselves on the boardwalk at some point during our run. It is fun to watch the seasons change and sunrise adjust throughout the year. Sara snapped this picture with her phone last week. One of the signs summer is approaching is that the gates for the public beach access are unlocked, the water fountains are on, and the facilities are open at 6 am. It’s perfect for an early morning pit stop.
Just down that walkway and over the dune is the Atlantic ocean and the rising sun.
