The world is my gym!

One of the things I like about running is the cheap thrills it offers me!

I boldly go where many have gone before. But so what?!

In the gym that is the world, I regularly find new and exciting new routes, which give me that great feeling of boldly going where no one has gone before.

Right now my gym is decorated for winter. The trees show me their barren branches. And the houses are decorated for Christmas.

My Granny's run

I named my newest route after Granny's in honor of this coffee place called Granny's where I grab my cup of coffee after 5 kilometers.

Seeing the sights

There are lots of things to see on the way there. I pass the train station, run through a residential area, and then on to a road which is very fittingly called 'Sports Road'. And it really is very sporty. Because it's surrounded by playing fields with children playing hockey and soccer while their parents stand on the sidelines watching.

This gives me an extra thrill from the joy of nót being one of thém.


And then there it is: Granny's! 

Then on to a little harbor with lots of parked boats, over a footbridge and then there it is, my goal for the day: Granny's.

And as I run towards it I can already smell the coffee and freshly made apple pie.

There really is no better gym than the world itself!

You make running sound so great. I don't have any good coffee and apple pie to run towards in my town. :( Does Dunkin' Donuts count? I can run towards donuts! :)

Hi Amy,

Dunkin' Donuts definitely counts!

Any place where they serve something nice counts in my book!

Thanks for coming by!

I am not a big fan of the gym. Could be the cheap (uh frugal) voice in my head saying go for a walk outside instead of walking in place watching a tv show you don't want to see.

Thanks for sharing with us on #FridayFrivolity

My world is snow covered too. My only concern is at a certain level of cold the air isn't so good for your lungs!
