VADAVICTORIA,

Be VERY careful when running on sand. The reason, because it is a very unstable surface there is a tendency to put a lot of strain on the foot, ankle, calves and most importantly the Achilles tendon. As a 6 year runner, I would not run on sand for more than 30 seconds at a time...too much potential risk for an injury!

Running! Running in sand is a lot harder, and easier on the joints!
