This post isn’t necessarily a “trip” but it does give a little “taste” of what I’m lucky enough to see every time I head out my front door for a run. 🙂
I started running about a year and a half ago… I’m not fast, I don’t run very far, and I don’t really enjoy the process. However, it’s where I run, that makes it all worth while. From my home in Ocean Grove, I can head north to Asbury Park or run the same distance heading south, through Bradley Beach & Avon by the Sea. All 4 of these towns offer something a little different, but what they have in common is a gorgeous, uninterrupted stretch of boardwalk along the Atlantic Ocean.
This time of year is the best… perfect temperatures, empty beaches and photo opps galore. I try not to stop WHILE I’m running, but sometimes, something just catches my eye and I have to pause & grab it. At the end of my run, I usually wander down to the water’s edge as a little “reward” for completing the dreaded task. There’s nothing better than the sound of the waves, the cool breeze & a feeling of accomplishment to start the day. Here’s a little glimpse from the past couple of weeks… Enjoy!
