Let Yourself Get Lost

This is one of the themes that inspired this blog. I do have a tendancy to get a little bit “turned around.” I do not have a great sense of direction; I once got lost inside the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas. I ended up logging 2 miles inside the building trying to get to the door to go outside for a morning run.

But I also have an innate sense of adventure, and I don’t worry too much about getting lost; so far I have always managed to find my way back home.

Because I travel a bit for work and for play, and because I always seem to be training for something, inevitibly I end up exploring new places by foot. In the two and a half years that I have been running, I have run some pretty incredible routes. I now know enough to take along my phone when I go out for a run, as a great way to record and remember some  of the cool places I’ve had the opportunity to explore.

  1. Lovely photos!

    Hadn’t realized Beach to Beacon finished on grass…and I signed up for it. Not used to that, seems a little scary to me to be trying to push at the line on uneven ground. (I don’t have XC experience) How was it for you, or do you do enough running on uneven surfaces that you didn’t notice?

      Thanks! I am still a very novice, not-very-fast runner so I did not notice. The shoot is the final 1000 M, winding, uphill on pavement toward the top of the park. The grass stretch is only about 50-75 yards at most and it is very flat and level.THEN you must then walk up a steep hill to get water and food. I have more phots, DM your email and I will share!
