My wife, Val, is a runner. She was a cross country runner since high school. Since then, she has been in four marathons and is training for her fifth. Every now and then she participates in local runs for “fun”. This 4-miler on the beach was one of those “fun” runs. She ran it in just over 26 minutes. I can carry heavy stuff for miles, but running like that is not in my DNA. Overall, the afternoon was beautiful and perfect for some beach photography.
