Today’s Tuesdays on the Run topic is Scenes from your Run (or something like that – love when things get all mixed up!) and I’m envious of everyone else’s good weather and scenic routes near their homes! Nebraska hasn’t had much of that lately. Thanks as always to Patty, Erika and Marcia for hosting.
Far too many of my runs lately have been filled with dodging snow in my neighborhood:
I do love that I at least have this little windmill and pond to make me smile when I’m running in my neighborhood, which is the only remotely scenic piece of my routes through the burbs. 🙂 I know a lot of my daily run pics feature this guy and it’s because this is usually the spot where I stop and realize “Oh, it IS a lovely day to run.”
Thankfully, when the weather is better I have some gorgeous park trails to run through around town, so I’m not always stuck with the treadmill or the suburbs.
My favorite scenes on the run are naturally the ones I get when I travel. All three of my cities this spring (New Orleans, Baltimore & Memphis) are places where I’m going to have to be a little careful about running alone. It isn’t absolutely a “no” to run alone in those cities, but I’m going to be selective about when and where. To cheer myself up on yet another cold and icy day in Omaha, I thought I’d wander back through my favorite running scenes for the last few years.
Running has definitely allowed me to see some beautiful places. I can’t wait to see what’s next! What’s your favorite place to run?
