I have a weird relationship with running. I don’t particularly enjoy it, but somehow I’ve completed 2 half-marathons and 2 full. I think that speaks more to my love of schedules, regimens and checking figurative boxes, which makes me sound so free-spirited and fun. That said, I woke up Sunday morning with an immediate urge to go outside and run like the wind, preferably by the beach and before the temperature hit 90 degrees. (San Diego basically skipped winter and spring.)
I give Mission Beach and Pacific Beach (better known here as PB) a lot of flack for its red cup reputation, but I must admit, there’s such great positive energy. From runners and cyclists to skateboarders and rollerbladers, almost everyone is doing something active, and as I was reminded yesterday, living in a weather wonderland like San Diego really does make us all so happy here.
Since I’m not all that religious about running, I stopped to snap evidence of those positive vibes along the way. Here are some sunny pics to start the week:
