The life of a long distance runner is one of risks and rewards. The risk of injury vs the reward of a personal best. The risk of burnout vs the reward of a great meal or some much needed R&R. As I find myself 19 days and 10 training runs away from my next big race — A Midsummer Night’s Run 30K, I find myself contemplating my next big reward. Perhaps a return to this beach I stayed on at the northern tip of the island of Zanzibar is in order.
