Australia Is A Workout Wonderland
The weather on the Gold Coast is amazing. It is usually in the 70s by 9 AM. This morning I ran on the beach at Surfers Paradise. It was such a beautiful run. The beach is miles and miles of golden sand. I ran for a little over an hour at a comfortable pace. The hotel has a salt water pool, so tonight I will swim an easy 2000 meters. I'm so impressed with how fit everyone is on the Gold Coast. The beach was filled with runners, bikers, surfers and swimmers. When I walked by the gym at the hotel it was packed.
Tomorrow I'm competing in the ITU Aquathlon World Championship. This will be my first afternoon race. The start time is 1:00 PM. The Aquathlon is a 2.5 K run and 1 K swim and another 2.5 K run.
