Tybee Island Turtle Trot 5K

I completed the first of the 5Ks I'm doing for my "Before I'm 30" tasks! I completed the Tybee Island Turtle Trot 5K with my coworker EK, a run on the beach to benefit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center.

I took it easy for the first half of the run, getting my bearings running on the sand. I was kind of jealous of the people running in the "toe shoes" because it seemed like the perfect surface! There was a huge crowd and a narrow start, so it took a while to get a good position and avoid the dozens of dead jellyfish all over the place!

That being said, I ran the second half faster, and I enjoyed seeing them release a couple of rehabilitated sea turtles afterwards! How cool is that?
