hit the road

my love of running started at sixteen & our love has grown now for over five years’ time, increasing in intensity with every season. our love has been firmly established, there has been no doubts or questions. but i have fallen in love all over again: as if running & i have found ourselves on a second honeymoon. day after day after day, i lace up my running shoes, grab my iphone, pick an album on rdio, start up runkeeper and hit the road. because i run six days a week, i don’t go for long: usually between two and a half and four miles. enough time to clear my head, breathe some fresh air, remind my body that it is young and alive and capable.

we moved homes this summer and after fourteen years in our previous neighbourhood, it’s weird to suddenly be on new roads. but with every afternoon jog, the surrounding streets and avenues and trails feel a little bit more like home. i’ve started a little instagram hashtag called #runningviews: quite simply that… my running views. ;)
all taken with my iphone. hope you enjoy.


mmmmm, what a beautiful world. october is my favourite.

  • yes. october is the best. I’ve just started getting into running (after dancing ballet for 7+ years) and seriously love it.

  • LOVE that last shot… I think nature is one of my favorite parts of running. God is so good :c)

    You’re so lucky to have a neighborhood like that! I absolutely love these photos. Can’t imagine what running in these places must feel like! :)

  • Gorgeous views. I love running too. Such a great way to clear the head and get the heart rate going.

    I think I might like running if I got to look at what you look at. somehow arizona isn’t quite as picturesque ;)

  • what a fun idea Jamie:)
