On Thanksgiving I had the kind of run that just made me feel really grateful for everything I have in life.
I know the beach isn’t for everyone, but it is my happy place and the fact that I get to run at the beach six days a week is something I’m really thankful for.
I don’t always get down there early enough to watch the sunrise, but I did on Thursday and I really want to share the experience with you! I ended up taking a few snaps throughout my five miler in the nice cool morning air.
Welcome to Fort Lauderdale Beach! 🙂
Watching the sun start to peek up over the horizon is really amazing.
And when the rays start to spread out across the sky it’s really something.
As you can imagine the run really flies by while you’re being treated to such a gorgeous show!
If you ever come visit me we would definitely go for a run at sunrise… or if you have a dog we would go for a stroll during the weekend when part of the beach opens up to doggies.
I just learned that dog fact because…. well that’s a post for another day when plans are more solid!

Did you know that greyhounds are athletes that take their retirement very seriously? They sleep up to 17 hours a day making them great dogs for people who live in condos. They tend to get along well with other animals, including cats (very important), they are good dogs for people with allergies, and they can reach speeds up to 40mph in just 6 steps!
Gotta love those speedy runners.
Usain Bark would be a fitting name, right? 😉
How was your Thanksgiving?
If you did a Turkey Trot, how did it go??
