I am just back from a lovely week in Sicily. Being able to run in different places is such fun, and I was very lucky to be only 2 minutes from a sandy flat beach. I managed to do 3 early morning runs with a friend. Best bits: running next to the sea, running in the village and looking at (and smelling) the beautiful flowers in the village, and jumping in the swimming pool when I got back. It was quite tough though- even at 7am it was hot, and my friend is much fitter and faster than me so I was puffing away while he was gliding along the sand chatting easily! In the afternoons we went swimming in the sea. The bonus - not feeling bad about eating pasta and cannoli whenever I felt like it! Not to mention the odd beer or glass of wine! 😎
Enjoy your running wherever you are!
