Wish You Were Here....

Here's my official postcard from Orange Beach. Wish you were here....

I'm sending it a little early since we haven't technically left yet. We leave in about 10 hours. However, I don't know how great Internet service will be on the beach, so I thought I'd post it today.

Last year I was so excited to try this on my beach vacation:
But you know how you expect something to be kind of awesome, but the reality is it's kind of not? That's how I felt about beach running. It's hot. The sand isn't your friend. The waves could possibly ruin your $100 shoes. The list goes on....

So I did a little research online and found a nice 7-mile paved trail at Gulf State Park to run. Check it out---

Beautiful, huh? I couldn't wait to plan a long run there.

But then I read this on the website:

WATCH OUT FOR ALLIGATORS - THEY ARE DANGEROUS! It is reckless to approach alligators closely. Even though they may appear to be tame, alligators and other wildlife may suddenly turn and inflict serious injury.

Maybe NOT. Have a great week!

Ha ha, I agree on beach running. Its hot too, with the sun reflecting off the sand. And uneven footing. Feel so silly running on the road,when the beach is right there, but the reality is it is easier and better for me also.
so jealous. I want to be there, running with you.
Sending your postcards BEFORE you leave for vacation? You are incredibly well organized!!

Hope you have a great time.
