June 12... Goodbye Mexico!

Ever since I saw Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I have wanted to be Bridget. She has that long beautiful hair, spunky personality, and she gets to run on the beach. Since I started my 10k training and was in Mexico, I saw it as a good opportunity to step into her shoes. I woke up early, before anyone else was up, and just walked out there. There was hardly anyone around. I started to run, and found it a lot harder than it seems. The sand was squishing in my toes and keeping me off balance, but I kept going. It felt so good to do run with the waves alongside me, pushing me to keep going. I felt like I could run from everything, like nothing could touch me. When I couldn't go anymore, I sat in the sand and put my toes in, and just let the waves wash over them. I am always in awe at the ocean, and I can't ever seem to get enough of it. This morning I just breathed it in and let it soak through me to the core. The only thing that was missing was my love next to me, sharing the moment! But I loved that moment just the same. It was a fantastic moment to top off the end of my vacation in Mexico. I saw so many great things on this trip, learned so much as usual, and really had a good time. I am going to miss Mexico!!
