Where do you run? What do you see? That’s today’s topic for Tuesdays on the Run (or maybe you wrote about that last week and are talking about your spring race plans. That’s cool too.)
As you know, I live near Washington DC. This means that some of my runs look like this:
Or very occasionally this:
And once, just once, it looked like this:
But let’s be real here. I generally run fairly close to home. It’s easier and doesn’t waste time. So here are some pictures from my unplanned 7.3 mile run yesterday (I love when a run feels so good you just keep going and going. I was channeling my inner Forrest Gump!)
The one unpaved piece of my route:
The dirty snow piles filling one of the parks…
More dirty snow – will it ever melt? It’s taller than me!
And the neighborhood is changing (this house is being demolished and will likely be replaced by something that costs over a million. And it won’t be that big…)
There are many beautiful places to run in the DC area. I don’t usually run them, especially during the winter when I want to stay near home.
But ugly views or not, yesterday’s run was awesome. It just felt like a good solid 7.3 mile run – the longest run I’ve done since Marine Corps Marathon at the end of October! I wonder if I’ll be sore tomorrow???
