Reporting in from the Redneck Riviera...

We're having a nice vacation here at the Gulf Coast. We drove down early Sunday morning and played up until the evening. Ate some local seafood, and had a good night's rest. I got up Monday morning and ran 10 miles. An out and back from our condo into Orange Beach and back. It felt SO good. I haven't done more than 7 or so since the Moon Pie 10 miler, so I was due. I ran it in 1:33:30 - faster than I figured I would. I definitely sweated out anything that needed to come out. I love that feeling. Then we relaxed, rode the waves, and played hard.

Today, Briar started his training for the Kids of Steel Youth Tri on August 5th. He got up and we ran 1 mile down the beach barefoot, and then walked back. We then went to the weight room here at the condo and did some strength training and situps. It's been all relaxing and riding waves from there. Pictures to come when we get home...

Cheers.
