Scenes from a 6-miler.

Another week of half marathon training, done and done! The legs are keeping up nicely, although I'm wondering if it might be time for some new shoes. I ran outside on Saturday and noticed some tension in my arches. It could have been the fact that I was running outside, though. On uneven ground. Who knows. All I can do is keep an eye on it. I don't think my shoes are worn out yet, so we'll see.

Speaking of seeing things, the weather has been so nice. Chilly, but nice enough to run outside. With six miles on tap for this weekend, I decided to run one of my favorite routes. It takes me through my little beach town, and I'm sure you can imagine  what that means for scenery. Since I run with my iPhone, I was able to snap a few shots. Behold, scenes from my 6-miler (some of which have been edited using the Camera+ and Picfx apps):

(So, no filter or anything on this one. I'm just loving the light. And the way it goes with the direction of the wind. Sometimes I get lucky like that...because usually, when I take pictures on a run, I use the snap-and-go method so as not to take up too much time.)

Question: What's the best scenery you get on your running route? Is it a lake, a statue...houses? Tell me.

Great job girl. Jerri and I did our run today, over the bridge toward downtown looking out to the lake. It was so beautiful today. She did 13.1 miles.
I did only 8, getting ready for the race next Saturday.
