Marginal Way in May

I never get tired of this view....

The Marginal Way is something that I never get tired of looking at. Endless north Atlantic views; crashing waves and the smell of the salt water.

The Marginal Way has inspired writers, poets, artists and lovers. There are negative ions that are produced from the crashing waves in the ocean air. Negative ions are made up of sodium, magnesium, chloride and sulphate found in the ocean water. Once the waves crash into the rocks, the water is in the air, negative ions are produced.  Its widely believed that these odorless colorless ions can make you feel good, increasing the serotonin levels.

Runners have long known about "runners high", but a fast run on the Marginal Way is a double whammy!

Remember, you don't have to run the Marginal Way. Its best to enjoy the trail on a leisurely pace, and take in all the sights. There are plenty of benches for relaxing, and small beaches for combing.
