Every time I've run along the beach I've always worn shoes as the sand can get quite hot and you don't want to accidentally cut yourself on anything sharp (especially a syringe! Eeek!).
However, I've felt a little weird on my Mullaloo beach runs as I've noticed that everyone else runs without shoes on.
You look like a tourist! Be a man and run naked, yelled the coach.
Well I suppose the sun now does rise an hour later, so the sand isn't so hot anymore.
So this week I decided to run naked... well, half naked... I wore no shoes.
Unfortunately though running on sand didn't prove to be too beneficial for my feet - I didn't realise running on sand would cause so many blisters!
And, being the crazy beaching bloke I am, this morning, even though I had blisters from my previous run this week, I decided to run again.
Come on! Toughen up.
So now I've got blisters on my blisters!!
Add to that the fact that one popped and I went into the water...
It's at moments like these I wish I had a wheelchair.
The Process. Your Mileage May Vary.
