As I mentioned last week-- I traveled downstate to Westchester County, NY to visit my big bro and his wife.
I ventured out on a run early Saturday morning and it was going so well I decided to run across the border-- crossing state lines!!! Yes, for the first time in my life-- I ran in two states during one workout-- how about that for a good run!
Ok-- so they live right on the NY/Connecticut border (literally 5 minutes from Greeenwich CT) but still-- I ran through 2 states! I can still brag right??
It was a great run. Westchester County and Greenwich CT, are both very beautiful. Full of rolling hills, quiet settings-- making it very hard to fathom you are only 30 minutes from New York city.
During the run-- I realized we, as runners are very lucky. Those of us who can run long distances are able to take in the sights, explore, in a way that is much more intimate than a car ride or even a walk. We travel slow enough to see and experience everything-- but fast enough not to get bored.
I can't wait for the next trip!
Another first??? Taking a picture of myself-- while running-- I took several, this was the only one not blurred :)
