Clam Beach run

Saturday we all piled into the car early, drove through the dark while the kids slept to Trinidad California.
Zachary, Esther and I then waited in the cold until we ran in the rain.  I wore a garbage bag as a coat for the first 2 miles.  We crossed a river then ran 2 miles on the beach to the finish.

Pam got in some geocaching until the car battery died.  Joe and Todd got us jump started.  

We had ice cream near Selma and made it home after dark.

Today Gideon and I did a 3 mile tempo with the team, then Zach joined us for a run in the Britt woods, which Esther and I have decided is our favorite place to run barefoot.

Looks like Ester is running in socks!

So how did the 3 of you place?

Esther was 26th of 233 females.
Zachary was 2nd in his age group. I was 5th of 502, and won $25 (gas one way) for age group.
Zachary had his shoes on, I had them off, which is the opposite of how you usually see us around the neighborhood

Congratulations! We're proud of you.

Barefoot? Like Zola Budd. I can't even do the dishes barefoot anymore. It's always inspiring to see the way you guys live life!
