Bermuda: Day Three

On our last morning in Bermuda, my sister and I decided to run the route that had been recommended to me by a local runner, so we walked down to Horseshoe Bay.  After a brief debate, we decided to keep our sneakers on for Horseshoe Bay because we'd want them for the path at the other end.  It was hot, and I soon fell behind my sister.

At the far end of the beach, we turned up the hill and found the path that runs just inside the coastline to the next beach.  The path was grassy in some places, sandy/rocky in others.  It took us past a few smaller beaches and a campground.  We even ran right by the guy who'd told me about this run!  By the time we finally hit the parking lot connecting the beaches, I was drenched and thirsty. 

Once we arrived at Warwick Long Bay Beach, we kicked off our shoes and placed them far enough up on the sand that they wouldn't get wet.  I ran deeper in the water than I had the day before to cool off.  It slowed me down, but honestly, we weren't moving very quickly anyway.  At the far end of the beach we paused to admire the view, and then we ran back to our shoes.

After that, our run pretty much became a brisk walk back to the concession stand at Horseshoe Bay for some water.  With our "run" out of the way, we had a big lunch and spent the afternoon poolside.


The moral of the story is that it's hard to run very far in Bermuda.  Perhaps the people shelling out $15 a day to run on the hotel treadmills had the right idea!  It was fun trying, though, and I did pick up this little tidbit: "locating satellites" isn't any faster on an island than it is in NYC.  Crazy, huh?
