Lucky we did, because a) it was hot as, and b) we saw a turtle!! It was a big one, too! Below are photos of the turtle and the run in general. We rocked 7.69 miles. *high five*
Afterwards, we came home and I managed to write some thesis. So it was truly an Achievement Day (because honestly, every day that I write a bit of thesis is a massive cause for celebration).
Then we went to my friend Judith's beach birthday party! It was at a place called Locarno Beach, which is along from Jericho, and which Matthew and I had actually already been to, thinking we were at Jericho... Anyway, we laid out our towels, ate some food, and then Matthew and the UBC crew actually went for a dip in the drink. It was cold, murky, and very adventurous of them.

Happy Birthday, Judith! I'm so grateful for the excuse to finally have a beach day! It was just delightful.
