Despite the slow speed this was not an easy run. First day of vacation in Cabo San Lucas at the Pueblo Bonita Sunset Beach Resort. Resort occupies the side of a hill. After going to the pool for a bit, decided to run, but didn't feel like changing. So I ran wearing swim suit and water shoes. Water shoes actually worked out pretty well, felt like barefoot running except with protection.
I started out going up a pretty steep hill. I was at more of a walking pace even though I was running between the incline and running in water shoes. Ran over toward another section of the resort where there was much construction - so the path I was on would end some times, I'd switch to the road and then back to the path. Turned back about 1.3 miles into the run and then passsed by where I started from and headed onto the beach. The sand is pretty course and not packed in tight which made it difficult. Ran to the resort boundary on the beach then another tenth of a mile to make it 5k. Just past a rocky point was the small beach area called Pedregal Beach. It felt peaceful there, much quieter. Looked like it was mainly private homes but there was public access to the beach. You can't swim in this area (either by the resort or Pedregal Beach) due to very dangerous currents. Near the resort they have a few lifeguards that make sure you don't get too close.
One year anniversary today. We would do a photo shoot a little bit later then go out for a nice dinner at the resort's Steak House.
