since i have recently signed up for 3 marathons in 3 days (see THIS post) I have obviously been running quite a bit more than usual. and i have had to find some more exciting routes to take. running up and down the same street over and over again can get tiring. i decided to take me camera out with me the other day to take some shots of what it is like where i live.
as i have a tendency to exaggerate, when i say i live in the middle of nowhere, i think some people take it as an exaggeration. it is not. i literally live in the middle of nowhere. i am surrounded on all sides by farm land and farm animals. nice running scenery, not always the best place to live.
yesterday i did 15K (about 10 miles) which is good considering what i have ahead of me in just 4 weeks. here is my run in pictures.
I am literally out in the middle of nowhere. if i am honest, this is some of the most peaceful and relaxing runs i have ever done in my life. but....everyday life proves to be something else. i have discovered that i am NOT a small town person. and that is reinforced every single day i am here. i recently did a facebook 'quiz' which said that the perfect place for me to live was New York City. hmmmmm, not sure that is the ideal city. but for now, i will enjoy my runs and be grateful for the beautiful landscape.
