Abhorrent to the heat as usual, the Green Girl waited until the sun went down to go for a run last night.
On my way down to the Shoreline Marina, I called one of the Sole Runners, Michelle, to see if she wanted to join me. She had just gone for a run with another friend but she agreed to join me.
We parked across from Shoreline Village and followed the bike path out to Marina Green Park.
It was an ineffable night for a run. The city lights reflected off the water and danced on the gentle waves.
In the distance, we could see the Shoreline Aquatic Park with the Long Beach Harbor Lighthouse shining like a blue beacon in the night.
As we ran along the marina, we admired the majestic beauty of the Long Beach skyline. A plane flew over the horizon and appeared as a dot of light over the buildings.
From dusk to night will always be my favorite time to run. I find a certain comfort in the solitude of the darkness.
