Running in the rain is one of my favorite past times. It really is like exercise, therapy, and a shower, all balled up into one refreshing amazing experience. Actually, if you think about it, running in less than ideal conditions has a bit of a Rocky-Balboa-I’m-hardcore element to it, and it’s an ultimate stress reliever. Some of my favorite runs were done in a deluge (yes, an ipod died), late at night or early in the morning before the sun came up (on well lit streets), in the snow (even though I didn’t go fast), or my favorite…barefoot, while it’s drizzling and foggy on the beach (thank you Cannon Beach).

The Atlantic isn’t the only ocean synonymous with a November pilgrimage. The North Pacific Ocean really starts to light up in November and surfers all over the world take part in the pilgrimage to the North Shore of Oahu. All those winter swells unleash their power on what’s known as the “7 Mile Miracle” – a stretch of beach that has some of the world’s best reef breaks, all within biking distance of each other. Surfer or not, watching the waves and surfers is an epic sight see in person. There are also amazing hikes, food, and other ocean activities to make Oahu a destination for any tropics lover. And the best part is you don’t have to be loaded to take a dip into the North Shore paradise. If you’re interested in checking it out or want to venture back for more, here’s some of my favorite places that won’t break your wallet.
