I ran next to puppies! (or rather, I outran puppies, aw yeah!)
I really got a chance to look around the neighborhood and get a different perspective.
This cross says, "One Nation Under God." Thanks for the clarification.
This one was my favorite. I love the little handmade American flag.
But then I also ran by a lot of boarded up houses or businesses. It looks like the recession and/or drug war hits everywhere.
This one was an old convenience store or something by my mom's house.
Back to running.
I've realized that St Pauls is not very runner friendly. The only place I could run a few miles without too many turns was a road with a speed limit of 55. I ran it, though, because the traffic was pretty low.
Also, most of the streets do not have sidewalks (including the ones with the most traffic). I remember learning in my Humans and the Environment class that towns that are less walker friendly have higher rates of obesity. Just a thought.
The closest thing to a sidewalk that I saw. You can see that it ends fairly quickly.
Now that the weather should warm up, I will probably be running more after work instead of at work.
I will be running a 1/2 Marathon soon. I just don't know when or which one.
Also, a coworker and I were thinking of forming a running club with some others at work.
So there is a lot of cool stuff that's going to be happening in my lil running world.
