A Jog + A Blog

I am channelling my inner Dr. Seuss
to give this post a little spruce

Sometimes it’s fun to create a rhyme
especially when you have the time

I wanted to mix things up today
so I decided to take my run to the bay

I did half of my run on the road
and finished it up in beast beach-mode

065

I planned my run at low tide
so there was plenty of beach to hit my stride

024

I had to forge through a few creeks
but thankfully none that were over knee-deep

022
This is a peek of what I look like up a creek.

I had a few moments of dread
when I had to hurdle over a bulkhead

I have no future in the steeple chase
as I would simply fall flat on my face

063

I felt like I was on an adventure to the sea lab
as bay was alive with shrimp, jellyfish and crab

066

I even saw a fox!
But thankfully no crocs!

032 Edited

I ended up with just over eight miles
and arrived home with all smiles

I will bid you farewell
with one last picture of a beautiful artesian well

033

I hope that you enjoyed this post
with a glimpse of life on the Mobile Bay coast

  1. very cool rhyming post! and so cool to see shrimp, jellyfish, crab, and fox!
    i really need to get out and run again…now that tropical storm Darby passed us, today’s humidity level is 96%…. not quite sure whether running in the afternoon would be such a great idea or not!
