We didn't exactly pound sand, but ran on the beach road next to the shimmering Atlantic Ocean. Afterwards I waited for the award distribution by sitting on the shore and reading until a little girl piped up, "Look at that!" and lifted my head fast enough to spot a dolphin leaping completely out of the waves. On a sunny and perfect 70 F day I pulled a personal best time in the 5K, 22:47 and came in 2nd in my age group. I think that is going to be my last race until fall due to the move and going up to Maine.
