Saw several people running on the beach today and I was feeling guilty about not running at all during my weekend beach getaway (but I forced myself to bring only a carry-on and that meant no room for running gear), and then as if to add salt to the wound, I came upon this research finding:

Note to self: Make room for running gear next beach getaway.

    There is nothing like the sea. Fortunately, I live on The Mediterranean.
