Ocean and Woods

A nice day off with the family today. I slept in a bit this morning, or as much as the cats would let me :), and made my way over to run through the Commons down to the ocean a little after 9:00 am. It was a nice leisurely start to the day. The sun was bright, temps were in the 50s and I was wearing shorts, but the wind was blowing fiercely. I ran through the woods and then out through Pennelville to Simpson's Point, buffeted by the swirling wind. As usual, though, it is lovely out there and a pleasant change to have a few flat miles in the middle of the run during which to pick up the pace. Got in a solid 10 miles and felt happy.

After lunch, we all bundled up and headed over to the Cathance for a hike. We took the woods trail out towards the end of the preserve and enjoyed the water rushing along the river and kicking up the leaves along the trail. We could still hear the wind whipping around, but were mostly protected down along the river and got in a nice 1.9 mile hike on a beautiful November afternoon. Always good to spend time in the woods with the family!
