Hilton Head Island Running

We’re in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for our annual March Break family pilgrimage My parents are here for the month, and my sister, her husband and their kids are also down for the week. My older sister will arrive with her partner tomorrow for a few days too.

I’ve run a fair bit around Hilton Head, including a couple of 30km long runs out to the airport on the other side of the island and back.

This time around we’re here for two Sundays so that means two 29km runs on the island. I’m looking at some different options this time, including going up and over the Cross Island Parkway bridge. Shorter runs will be in and around the Shipyard Plantation, and maybe along the hard-packed sandy beach too.

It’s going to be a great week, with temperatures close to 20ºC during the day. That means shorts and a t-shirt! I haven’t run outside in temperatures even close to freezing in months, so this will be a nice change of pace.
