The Fence and The Foot

Aside

This fence runs the length of what used to be, pre-Sandy, the Long Branch Boardwalk. It annoys me because it stands in the way of me and the beach. I have to trek to Pier Village usually to find the closest beach access. ¬†Unless of course somewhere along the way there’s a gap in the fence that I can squeeze through. I would never move it myself…but…. if a space was already there it’s far too tempting to resist. Plus I love jumping off the sea wall into the sand.

I forgot to set my alarm this morning so I woke up late. I didn’t make it to the beach before the sun peeked over the horizon but I was pretty close. I’m really sick and tired of having Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot.¬† I’ve not run since Tuesday and it’s making me crazy. Big plans for snowboarding at Hunter Mountain this weekend and I was hoping it would be better by now. Just like the fence, I’m not letting the pain stand in my way.

Hopefully next week I’ll be back to running with a little luck and some runspiration. I have to give the shuffle in my iPhone props for putting together a pretty sassy three songs in a row that kept me moving on my way today.
