Looks like I have found my park! It's about 10 min. away driving, but it is totally worth it! My run wasn't all that exciting, but the Park was! :)
Yes that's my finger...The sun was very bright and I didn't see it! lol :)
I just love it all!
Stopping to take pictures! :)
I have to Thank my mom who actually Google Maped this Park for me! :) So glad she found it! :)
As for the run, I really don't know how long the trail is, so I don't even know how far I went! I made it all the way around, walking, in less than 15 min. so I am thinking that it is at least a mile. If it is, then I did 3 miles today! If not, then...I don't know! It's times like these that I wish I had my Garmin! :) For the first 2 laps, I decided to just Run/Walk. I would run 5 min. walk for 1 or 2 min. Then the last lap I just walked the whole time. Just to enjoy it! I just have to say...the hills are killer! I love when you get to go down, of course, but going from flat land in my hometown to a hill every 5 seconds...I just know I will feel it tomorrow!!! It will take some practice to get back up to running 30 min. straight without walking up those hills! But I will do it! I have time to work on it right now, since I am still unemployed! :) I can't wait to go back again tomorrow! :)
And what's better than icing your shins after a nice run?
Sticking them in a 30°F pool!!! (There is actually a gauge for temp, that's how I knew) It was pretty out by the apartment's pool today, so I decided to sit and relax for a moment! It felt good, until my toes turned purple. :)
Off the park topic for a moment....For all of you Pumpkin lovers...
I give you the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie with Bubbles (Tapioca) from Fat Straws!
OMG it was yummy! My brother Jeff introduced this to me yesterday! It was so good! :)
BTW...He's playing Guitar tomorrow at the Opening Bell Coffee Shop in Dallas, TX! Everyone should come by and hear! He's great! :)
Do any of you have a favorite place to run, walk, bike...or just picnic?
