One of my favorite things about the North East is how green it is. Yes, simple as that, it's green.
Back home things are marginally "green" but mostly burnt and brown. Up here I am able to be distracted by the beauty of the nature while running. I often find myself looking side to side during my runs which takes a lot of the noticeable aches and pains away.
I thought I would share with you the beauty of my morning run this morning.
It was so refreshing, even in the intense humidity. It was just me, my Gungor Pandora station and the Hudson river flowing directly beside me.
This whole running gig has turned into more of a therapy rather than work. As soon as I hit the pavement my mind turns off and I am just able to disconnect and take in the sights and sounds of nature. The stressors of life take the back burner and I am at peace.
It's a wonderful feeling that I would highly recommend to anyone!
Meet: The Corning Preserve
The Hudson is divided up into different "River Islands"
It always makes me laugh because I often think that I'm getting away from real life on my runs, and then I'm always reminded that I'm not in some river oasis but really in the city!
Short post today, but hey it's Friday and I'm also posting over on Rachel's blog: Postcards from Rachel. Stop by and say hi!
