A week of runs

Experiencing the sights, sounds, and feelings of running outside is often equal to the enjoyment of the physical run.  Here are some images from our runs this week.

I couldn’t seem to stop taking pictures of the early morning sun on the foliage.

The fleeting rays of a morning sky like this will always speed me out the door to catch these colors before they vanish.

Definitely worth getting up early for this.

 

I soaked up the sights and sensations on this misty morning run.

 Mike was pretty tolerant of my frequent photo stops on our long run on Saturday. I used it as an opportunity to add in some interval work as I sprinted to catch up to him.

No matter how many times I run past them, I always look forward to this part of our route.

 The sight and sound of geese overhead thrills me every time.

 These skies are such a gift.

Although we love our local loop, traveling to Portsmouth to run to New Castle is a favorite alternate route.

 Mike took a quick detour as I continued to stop to take photos.

After our run in Portsmouth and Newcastle, Mike bought new shoes at Runner’s Alley.  This store in Portsmouth provides an outstanding selection of running shoes, apparel, and gear with an unfailingly enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff. I wouldn’t shop anywhere else for my running needs.

Runner's Alley, Portsmouth, New Hampshire- Our favorite running store!

As I write this post, the rain and wind outside are undoubtedly creating a different landscape for tomorrow’s run.  However, I find these changes to be one of the beauties of running in Maine.

One thought on “A week of runs

  1. These pictures are so gorgeous. Makes me miss running in Maine so much! And another perk of Runner’s Alley is the Friendly Toast across the street…the perfect post run fuel 🙂
