Visiting my sister and dad at Gold Beach OR for the 4th of July weekend, and I did my first run on the beach! I was expecting it to be allot more difficult, I ran in wet and dry sand but to me the effort was no less than pavement. Maybe all my hill runs have payed off! I was slower for sure! But also being a forefoot runner I think helped allot on the sand. It was so windy here!!! I felt like I was running in place sometimes! But I can't wait to run more on the sand!!! I love it!!
