Familiar Sights

Since I'm up visiting my mom in my hometown, I decided to continue my c25k training outside in my favorite neighborhood. While there is still snow on the ground - that meant dodging melting snow and ice - it was a gorgeous day and I wanted to take advantage. Especially since today is gloomy and gray.

Back when I lost all that weight years ago, I used to walk/rollerblade this neighborhood. The houses are beautiful and I would imagine what it must be like to live in such a place. Not to give an architectural history lesson, but most of them were built in the early 20th century and exhibit the various styles popular during that time.

This one is my favorite. 

The local park has a beautiful rose garden and is also one of the few places in the city where you can ice skate on the pond in the winter. 

Just imagine what this looks like without the snow and beautiful flowers everywhere.

I was always a little jealous of the runners out running the boulevard back in the day. Well, yesterday I was one of them! Running outside is definitely harder than the treadmill and toward the end I felt so incredibly slow. Especially compared to the lady in running gear with her dog. But you know what? I was out there doing it. How many people are actually out there doing it v. how many say they are going to but aren't actually out there. I may super slow, but at least I'm doing it. 

What are you going to do today?


  1. That house and park are gorgeous!

  2. It's officially an historic district now and it should be. It's beautiful!

  3. Good for you! I'm proud of you for getting out there and doing your workout even though you were not home. That really takes committement. It looks as though your surroundings were great while you were booking it lady. I have just started back to working out. 3 days in now. I seriously have to make it a habit.

  4. I think I've gotten to the point where it's a habit again. I seriously get upset if I don't get my workout in!

  5. I really like that brick one too!


I love comments so leave me some love!
