Running at Mercuripe Beach, Fortaleza, Brazil



This is a picture of the beautiful Mercuripe beach of Fortaleza around 6:15pm yesterday. The tiny little camera is not able to capture the depth and colors accurately and the actual view was much more breath taking. I had the opportunity, and just could not miss, to run on this beach. The beach was definitely crowded for a saturday evening in Brazilian summer and there were lots of strollers, runners and roller bladers on the sidewalk.

This is my third run in this week by the Atlantic ocean, only this one is about 3500 miles south of the two earlier ones :-)

Did I say I love my Garmin Forerunner 305 for accurately recording the timing, pace, maps and other attributes ? However I don't understand how come there was an elevation gain of 81 ft and a loss of 87 even though I started and stopped at the same point :-)
