Running is never beige

I have a friend who refers to days when nothing happen much as beige. I was about to describe todays run as beige when I thought woah there no run is ever beige. Something is always different, something is usually learned. I think beacuse I only did a quick trip to the beach which I’ve done dozens of times it felt nothing out of the ordinary. The tide was in so no beach adventure.

So what gave this run colour?

No matter how grey the sky and sea its still beautiful
Driftwood (shoe for scale) – Which I ran back with (bloody heavy too) Yet another piece I have no idea what to do with.
Random graffiti – Now normally I would abhor this but it will be completely gone by the end of the next hight tide. As for the message – Well Im presuming its by someone called bean. Mast is used as a name around here instead of mate “Alright mast we going to the pub?” and for some reason he or she didnt just write 2016.

So kids remember – Look outside the beige and you’ll always be pleasantly surprised.

  1. what i can’t get over, living here in the UK is the GREEN! OMG the green just boggles my mind… there is not just ONE green, there are like hundreds of greens… i could make a Pantone book of greens… i LOVE it! and OH MY don’t even talk about autumn… i wander around taking so many pics of the colours that i am sure that one day autumn leaves are going to explode from my phone!

  2. Wonderful!
    I love finding created items on the beach like your stone drawing or a sand castle! The tide will take it, it will be all gone … all that is left is the joy of creating it and seeing it. The pure creation is the meaningful part. Just like your run …

    1. I think it’s the ephemeral nature of the beach that draws me. There’s always something new without fail. Running in the morning and tide and weather looking good so I’m sure I’ll discover something new. I’ll let you know ofc!
