Recently, while reading a post over at Tall Mom on the Run, about the change of seasons and how she was able to capture her running path in the same place, in all four seasons, in photos, I started to think about, as many of us in the southern regions mentioned, the fact that we don't have a true change in seasons that really stands out like most of the country does. And that got me to thinking: "Well, we might not have seasons to share, but what I can share is how absolutely beautiful our own little (urban) corner of the world is - a place we can run outside year-round." Orlando is called "The City Beautiful" after all.
So last weekend, as I was out for Long Run Sunday (6.3 miles - yes, ALL 6.3!), I decided to capture my run in photos and share it with you guys. Later that afternoon, armed with camera, I headed back out in the car, and 'photo-journaled' my run that day, which by the way, took a little longer than 60 minutes, but guess what - I did the entire 6.3 miles with only one 30-second walk in mile #2. Woo Hoo! What a difference temp/humidity really DO make! (Notice the jackets in some of the pictures... a rarity in Orlando - maybe 20 days out of an entire year - seriously!)
Here it is, friends - running in downtown Orlando: 6 miles, 6 lakes, and (a little more than) 60 minutes.... Enjoy!
So now that you've seen our corner of the world, I'm wondering: What does your region look like??
Happy running, friends...
