Runnin’ The Booze Out

The family left Gulf Shores on Sunday for Sandy’s Dad house in Santa Maria, Florida. It’s about 90 minutes East and South of Gulf Shores nestled halfway between Destin and Panama City.
Feeling flabby I wanted to get in a long run in prep for Saturday’s half-marathon. There was a biking/walking path about 0.5 miles from the house that followed the highway along the ocean. I ran 5 miles out and 5 miles back in about 75 degree, sunny weather. It was good enough to sweat and work up a good tempo. I averaged 07:56 miles and felt pretty good when I stopped. The distance seemed a little long which worries me for Saturday. I hope I was just tired. Anyway I sort of felt redeemed from Saturday’s fiesta.
