I took a vacation this month down to visit family in Richmond Hill, Georgia. While there I had some great runs.
Right outside my daughter’s subdivision is the Coastal Highway. It has a nice shoulder – include a lot of grassy sections – that I could run on. I took a couple of runs to and from Walmart and had my grandkids riding alongside on bikes at times. Brad really enjoyed riding and talking with me and would push me a little to speed up.
It was nice to run in slightly warmer weather and at lower altitudes. The roads there are very flat, so it made for easier running than out here.
What I enjoyed the most about running out there was the different vegetation and views. Lots of swampy and sandy areas, a bamboo farm, oak trees, palm trees. Even though it was February I was able to enjoy lots of greenery.
I hope to go back either later this year or in 2011 and do a marathon in Georgia or Florida.
The one thing I regret – I didn’t get any running in with my daughter.
