After missing our Saturday morning Sole Runners run, Michelle and I went for our long run Sunday afternoon.
Instead of staying on the Shoreline Pedestrian Bikepath, we went over the bridge towards the Queen Mary.
Right before we reached the famous ocean liner, we managed to actually run through the Japanese Classic Car Show.
We looped around the grounds of the Queen Mary before heading back to the bridge.
When we looked back at Downtown Long Beach, we couldn't help but admire the majestic skyline.
The afternoon was warm but we both found in comfort in the knowledge that the weather would be cooling off soon.
Shortly after we passed Shoreline Village, we decided to run on the sand for a change.
It felt good to run on a softer surface for awhile.
We eventually returned to the bike path and took a turn down the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier as the sun began to set.
My right foot felt really good up until mile 8 when I started feeling some soreness in the arch. I concentrated on landing as softly as possible and kept going. My left hip felt good but the inside of my left knee was a little twitchy until I put the patellar strap on.
I am going to continue getting my foot taped and hope for the best.
I've been feeling a great deal of apprehension about my right foot and being able to complete another 17 mile run has done wonders for my confidence.
