I am well aware of the fact that I owe you all some serious updates but because I had such a great morning run I had to jump ahead and share this first!
So I’m in St. Louis for work for just a few days and since we are an hour begin my normal clock here I know that the right thing to do is get up and enjoy the morning before work and that is what I did this morning. I got up lace up those tennis shoes I contemplating leaving at home on “accident” and I headed out to the city to explore!
I was right! I headed down
turned the wrong way becase apparently I cant see a huge arch and found my destination! It was a seriously awesome run. Cool shaded areas with paths coming from all directions. LOTS of St. Louisanders running around exercise on a beautiful 60 degree morning! I mean you really can’t beat a run that looks like this
But to get down to that water you had to go down a flight of steps and then when I was ready to come back.. well I guess as the old saying goes… what goes up must come down and the save is true the other way around! So up I went….
So yea that was
so feraking hard great! After I finally made my way back up to the street I found a really nice area to stretch! And took this picture for Tim because that boy loves water features more than anyone else I know. hmmm come to think of it I’m not certain I know anyone else that loves water features. In any case this was the perfect place to take in the morning air and stretch!
This run today reminded me of another reason why I love running… seeing a city on foot is awesome. You get to see areas and cool things you couldn’t drive to. You’re not distracted by people honking their horns at you or practically giving your car a wedgie.
It is a really freeing experience. Just running around enjoying new things! I had a great run this morning and hoping to get in another tomorrow morning!!
