Beach vs. Treadmill


I will admit- I was a whimp last week.  The cold temperatures and the rain provided daily excuses to skip my walk on the beach…and unfold the treadmill.  I convinced myself that I would walk even longer because I could watch TV and be comfortable.

Well, after 15 minutes, I was completely bored.  I missed the view (of course), the birds, the roar of the ocean, and the smell of salt air. 

So, back on track (excuse the pun) this morning.  And I was rewarded with an amazing view of the sun over the ocean, and moderate temperatures.  Definitely better than TV!

    This is always a big question for me — inside or out. I’m a bigger wuss, I think, because I’ve been on the treadmill the last few days!

    I wrote an entire page about running down the shore in my South Jersey Shore book (which isn’t out yet). It really is a beautiful experience.
