Go coastal

April 22, 2012

Saw several people running on the beach today and I was feeling guilty about not running at all during my weekend beach getaway (but I forced myself to bring only a carry-on and that meant no room for running gear), and then as if to add salt to the wound, I came upon this research finding:

Exercising anywhere outdoors is linked with calmness, enjoyment and refreshment, but exercising on the coast is most beneficial and in urban parks the least, says research presented at the British Psychological Society Annual Conference.

Note to self: Make room for running gear next beach getaway.

    There is nothing like the sea. Fortunately, I live on The Mediterranean.

    :) I have enjoyed the sea wherever I have traveled.

    Having just gotten back from Florida to cold, grey Toronto, I wonder why I live here :)
