This was a crazy course. First we ran along the main road on the sidewalks, dodging pedestrians, but at least it was shady. But then we turned and ran along a very busy and very dangerous highway. It was kind of horrifying actually. We were all quite discouraged. We did pass a gorgeous beach and I chose that lovely place to scatter my little packet of my mother's ashes. I know she would have loved that beach. When we got back to the starting point of that loop, Ziyad told us that he had changed the course to a simple loop along the breezy coast. To everyone's relief, we didn't need to repeat that route along that highway. The ocean breeze really helped keep us a little cooler. I finished feeling fairly well. But of course didn't break any speed records!
