East Chop Run

IMG_5336I love to run when I’m away from home; I just think that it’s a wonderful way to know a place, especially a new place. Typically, when I run on the island, I head south from Oaks Bluff, down the beach road toward Edgartown, but today, I wanted to try something different.

And that’s how I found myself along the edges of East Chop on a rainy Sunday morning. The woman at the front desk of the Surfside told me of a route I could take to the north, one that would lead up around the outer skirts of the bluffs that define the coast. It was beautiful; I wish pictures could capture it.

Plymouth, Thanksgiving

Running

RockThanksgiving morning in beautiful Plymouth, home of the Pilgrims, birthplace of the ‘first’ Thanksgiving, site of the (anti-climactic) Plymouth Rock. We began the day with a cold, early run through the past, past the rock, the Mayflower, the Monument. It’s a place full of history. Today, we were part of it. 

Canal Run

CanalRunRunning is always a great excuse to go somewhere beautiful. Seven miles comes and goes pretty quickly when this the view.

 

Golden Gate Bridge Run

Golden Gate BridgeThe best way to experience a place is to run across it.

Bridge Other SideOver the bridge and back, thirteen miles, because it’s easy to forget you’re running when you’re running over this.
