First beach run

This past weekend I took a couple of days off and headed to Diani beach in my home country of Kenya. I had woken up early on Monday to catch the sunrise and then the idea of a beach run hit me and was cemented when I saw others do it. Do I grabbed my sneakers and gave it a go.

It was quite nice. The soft sand helped reduce the impact and the cool breeze reduced the heat which was already well over 20 Celsius. It hot a bit hot as the sun got higher at around 7 a.m should probably have started at first light. All in all it was a fun soaking it all in will definitely include it in my holidays

Sounds lovely! Did you feel like it was much harder than running on solid ground?


It was pretty much the same. The tide was low so I ran where it was a little more solid


I have been to a Kenya so got a pretty good image - sounds amazing!
