A Biloxi beach run

I spent last night and today in Biloxi, MS at the Beau Rivage for meetings for work. Biloxi, MS is right on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It is known for it’s gaming, but has some real pretty beaches. The beaches aren’t very big and the water isn’t as blue like in coastal Alabama or Florida, but it does have the beautiful white sand.

It was quite cloudy this morning from a rain storm that passed through during the night, but the weather was nice. It was cool and breezy.

Biloxi has a few nice spots to run, but I hadn’t run the beach before, so I decided that’s what I would do.

There is a sidewalk that runs all along highway 90 (highway 90 is the scenic route along the coast running east and west). Interstate 110 dead ends right into the water next to the Beau and there is a little boardwalk that goes out into the water and around I110. That was my starting point.

My starting point. The I110 Loop walk way (run way).

I ran for 2 miles. One mile out and one mile in. I ran along the beach with a nice cool, February breeze. I took it easy with an average pace of 8’29″/mi.

I thought it was worthy of some pictures, but I’m not sure if they capture the essence of my run. 🙂

My sugars have been good today and I hope they continue that way. 5 days left!

    Run across the Ocean Springs bridge next time and along the beach road is very scenic!

  2. I usually run the bridge when I’m down there, but since I was on the other side from the bridge, I decided not to go that route. I do like the bridge though!
