beach run report: st lucia

Julien (our coach) looked quite fit and having not run for quite a while, we were afraid of being put through our paces! However, not one to shy away from a run opportunity – especially one around the stunning island of St Lucia – we swiftly signed up to the Cap Maison hiking & running club. He kindly tailored his pace to suit us and thankfully there were many photo opportunities of the beautiful beaches and lush green hills, so we stopped for lots of breathers. We were greeted by a pack of howling dogs (Julien’s friends) as we arrived and did wonder what we had let ourselves in for but after sniffing us out, they happily ran with us (looking for prey) and paddled in the sea. We ran around the north east of the island including donkey beach and secret beach. We saw plenty of cacti too.
