It has been a really busy week. I'll tell you all about the Loser's Club Has Cushy Job @ Ad Agency another time. For now....

I blew off the gym tonight to enjoy a Happy Hour at work. And happy I was. But then I got home and had all this extra energy from my early "dinner." (Do Doritos count as dinner? Well, now they do. Beetis be damned!)

So, to burn off said extra energy, I went for a run. We had a row of thunderstorms today and the thick clouds were just clearing off the ocean. The sun was burning off the smell of rain and there were multiple rainbows. Running along the surf, squinting into the setting light, smelling the low-tide scent, I was once again amazed that I live here.

I didn't make it the full way 'round. It's about 4.8 miles, a little more if you take detours (like I did) down onto the various beaches and rocky cliffs. My goal is to run the whole thing and then some by end of summer. Even if I don't make it, I'll have a glorious time trying.

(Keep clicking on the "plus" and you can see my route....)
