two birds...

one post. Awhile ago after I had a mini-freak out about the blog that is now a major motion picture, Creative Kerfuffle had an idea that I take photos while I jog, a la the chick in the Yes Man. Then, as part of the 15 Week Challenge, our workout challenge this week was running, and documenting the running in photos....so here some photos of my normal route:

Let's get started:
One of my favorite parts is checking out how many turtles are getting some sun: Okay 5 minutes in:
Can you see how STEEP this is???


ahh, pretty flower:
Scary millipede:
Lots of wishes to be made:

Home stretch...my house is right past those speed bumps on the right, and while you can't really see it, there is a chipmunk standing on the left part of the street in the shadows:

3.1 miles!

Love this post! Your run is much, much more beautiful than my run. It is so green and picturesque. Lovely.

Nifty pics - but you look too fresh for five minutes in! I would be all beet-red and dripping wet, lol!

3.1 miles? awesome. way more than i did today.

What a great idea! Maybe Lee and I will document one of our runs sometime. Such nice scenery--and hooray for 3.1 miles!

Monica said...

What beautiful photos! I wish I could be a runner like you! Congrats on all your success so far!

Well, geez, I'd run too if I got to see turtles and chipmunks.

And I agree... you look all perky and healthy rather than beet red and dripping with sweat.

Fun! I'm totally doing this today!

Fun! I would die if I tried to run 1.3 miles, much less 3.1! Way to go!!
