Running with Lizzy in Beautiful Boston

August 27, 2010

Since my nagging injury sidelined me from training for five weeks I haven’t been able to run with one of my favorite running buddies, Lizzy. I’ve mentioned Lizzy before in my blog, but for those who don’t know about her, she is my coworker and also the writer of Food to Run For, where she writes about her adventures in the kitchen and out on the pavement. Liz and I share a lot in common, and I thoroughly enjoy running with her whenever we can squeeze it into our hectic schedules.

Here is the link for the route that we ran, pretty self explanatory!Β Morning Charles River Route! Find more Runs in Boston, Massachusetts

This morning we decided to partake in a morning run instead of a lunch time run, so we didn’t feel the stress of work hanging over our heads. I brought my camera with me since it was such a picture perfect day, so check out the photos below and ENJOY!

And another where you can actually see our faces!

Doesn't it look like a shot from Good Will Hunting?

Running around the Finger islands

And of course me

    We are pretty lucky, it was a GORGEOUS day! πŸ™‚ It’s easy to do long runs when you have amazing scenery to look at. Though I think that your scenery in CA definitely rivals Boston! Plus, nothing compares to your amazing photos from the Big Sur Marathon.
