My Morning Run/Walk

I got off to a late start this morning. I went to the drive-in theater last nite and didn't return home until 2:00 a.m. It's so fun to go and it's only $6 for two movies but as the shows don't start until after sunset, it makes for a late, late nite. I saw Ice Age III and Night at the Museum II - very cute!

Before I went back to work, I would run(or walk) 5-6 times a week. I love to get up early and start my day outside. Since I returned to work, I now run in the evenings except on Saturday. On Saturday, I visit our Farmer's Market early in the morning and then run.

The route I normally run is a loop that takes me thru 3 different neighborhoods and along our local wooded trail. Below are some of the homes I pass on my route. I took pictures of a few of my favorites and, as you can see, I have a predilection for big, old brick homes. And the homes along my route are just beautiful! The first one is my very favorite!

The house below is a sweet home. It is made of green stone and I love the woodsy setting.

Love this one, it is set so far back and the tree-lined driveway makes for quite an impressive entrance.

At the end of this neighborhood, I enter the trail (below). I am only on it for a mile but the trail goes for several miles. I usually see deer on my run, but not today - too many people were out enjoying the beautiful weather.

So what does your dream home look like? What does the scenery look like along your daily route? Can't wait to hear from you.

Enjoy your weekend.

The first one is my favorite also! Good for you on the run/walk. I need to do a lot more of that!

Wow, such beautiful homes and beautiful scenery for your runs.

Very pretty! What a wonderful place to do your run/walk. In response to your question - I walk. I've tried to run recently, but my knees are just not up for it yet. So, walking it is. But, I keep up a pretty brisk pace!

Hi Cari, what awesome homes and scenery. You are so lucky to live near them. I've enjoyed reading about your finds while antiquing. It's my very favorite way to spend my time, but it's hard to find good and affordable stuff here in AZ. I'm getting ready for a trip to the Midwest next month to shop, shop, shop! I can't wait.
