The beach has been my zen this summer. Getting up early just to see the sunrise and bodyboard is worth it everytime. Granted, thus summer has made me realize how out of shape I am and that is something I need to work on this winter. But I caved a couple of weeks ago and found a wetsuit on eBay. And it fits so I am prepared to keep going at least till November. While I am still fairly inexperienced, I enjoy the hell out of it, even with being out of shape. I never thought I would see this happen and I love it. So onwards into fall and more beach days.
