Sounds like some awesome runs. I like those pictures, did you do something special for some of the pictures? They look all misty and dreamy like.

Great runs - and great pics! That bridge looks like it could be featured in RW's "Rave Run" section! Also, your triceps look amazing - must be all those push ups!

Awesome trail! You've got the best run routes.

Do you take the time to enjoy the scenery while you're jogging or are you pretty focused on your run?

you look so fast!

You have fantastic places to run. Those wooden bridges are fun eh? We have one that actually bounces a little as you run over it.

Happy Easter recovery!

Way to finish those runs strong. That area looks so rural and peaceful, sort of like the part of Montana I saw, actually.

And I too noticed the nice definition in your arms. Must be the pushups!!

Beth said...

I love the running photos. Looks like a fun place to run, especially over the bridge.

I would post pictures of my running routes but I assume you've seen strip malls and general midwestern suburbia before.
