6 Miles, 6 Lakes, (And a Little More Than ) 60 Minutes - An Orlando Run in Pictures...
Posted Oct 26 1970 12:00am
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 seasonsto 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??
