Beach Run

Yesterday morning was the beach run. The flyer said to meet at the beach house at 6:30 a.m.. My kids were there, but the others had walked the 1/4 mile down to the beach already and started the run down there at 6:30! So my three started way late, but it didn't really matter because it was for fun and they didn't even time the 1.5 mile run.

I was a bit bored waiting, so I took pictures of random things. Like these bird tracks.

And the water coming in.

Jasmine started out wearing shoes, but Adam ended up carrying them for her! What a nice big brother.

The water was beautiful.

The girls took advantage of being barefoot by running through the water. Jasmine even stopped to pick up shells druing the run! (Good thing it wasn't a timed run)

It was very peaceful since the other runners were already gone. They were all adults and with the head start, they finished by time mine were half way. Only the two men in charge were still there.

Jessica helped Jasmine get the sand off so we could drop her off at school. We were only two minutes late! Adam had late start due to testing. The twins didn't run this because they aren't ready for it and it wasn't really for children, but they will be running the 1/2 mile Bunny Hop Saturday morning.
