Running, Travel

A Killer Workout

It’s Monday morning, and the first time in three days Bordeaux got to see the sun. It was off to the beach quick smart!

Soaking in the rays...

It wasn’t just any old beach, though.

One has to work hard to get to this beach

One has to work hard to get to this beach, for the sand was so soft, one would sink three inches with every step.

Hiking up the Dune of Pilat, where the sand was so soft, one sinks three inches with every step!

Hiking up the Dune of Pilat, the largest sand dune in Europe.

The trio had a race, and Sonic the Hedgehog beat GodzillaPin and the Ninja Turtle flat! Two minutes later on the summit, however, the speedster was rolling in the sand, feeling rather ill.

Going uphill was hard, but rolling downhill was another story. The Ninja Turtle couldn't resist running ahead of the boys, making airplane noises as she went

While GodzillaPin sat around soaking up the rays, the Ninja Turtle and Sonic the Hedgehog went for a 4 mile run

It was so much easier running with a friend! Switching between catch-up stories and watching the sights, the run went by quickly.

Jumping with glee when they heard oysters were on the menu for lunch

So it was a hike back up, and from the top of the dune, one could see the coast on one side, and the forests on the other side of the dune. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

The trio are not looking forward to the DOMS they’re inevitably going to wake up to tomorrow morning.
