|Happiest running day ever!|
Last week I had a 75 minute bike ride on my training plan, so I needed to figure out a route that would help me complete the time and also be enjoyable! Tom decided to ride too and we made a plan to go to the beach and back from our home. With perfect weather and a riding companion, we set off after the school traffic had disappeared. Wrightsville Beach is so busy in the summertime, that we would not consider riding down during the tourist season. Leaving our house, we weaved through our neighborhood for 3 miles before reaching the direct route to the beach. After around 8 miles, we reached this lovely spot and stopped for a water break. Other than water bottles, the only other thing we brought along were a cell phone and Halt spray that I carried in a running belt. We ended up riding just over 17 miles in 76 minutes so the route was perfectly planned!

After completing the ride, soaking my tired legs in the pool was the plan. I loved using my Boston Marathon 2015 mug, in honor of my speedy friends registering for the race this week. Good luck with registration!
