Today was a pretty awesome adventure! I was gong to make it just a simple 3 or 4 mile run but it turned out much better. As I pulled out of the driveway and started out I wasn’t sure exactly where I was going to run. I did know that it was a beautiful day and I wanted to get to the beach. As I drove down Lake Michigan drive I decided I’d run at the new Olive Shores park. They just completed the park in May and I ran there once before. It has over 200 steps to climb to get over the dune to the beach.
There was only one problem; I didn’t have a pass and I didn’t have my wallet to pay the $6 parking fee. I decided to look for parking down the road and then I would run to the park, go for a swim and then run back. I had a plan.
I decided to run with the stroller once again. I packed all my stuff in and off I went. The total distance to the park was 2.25 miles. Throw in 230 steps a 1/2 mile swim and the run back and it turned into a pretty good workout. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been to the beach and I still love it. I met a few people and had fun swimming, so all in all not a bad little adventure today. What was your adventure?
