Game plan for this post: Run through Nashville to New Orleans and end with a breakfast sandwich. Sound good? Let’s go!
Yesterday I got up at the crack of sparrows (Austalian slang here, thanks Anthony) to run around Nashville. I was thisclose to sleeping in, but am so glad I got out there!I fartleked the whole way. And made it to the top of this very chic pedestrian bridge!Hello, new-yet-old home. (For new readers, the story is that I’m from Nashville, moved away for nine years, and just moved back with Anthony. Whirlwind!)About 20 minutes after I took the above picture, I was packed, showered, and speeding in a taxi with wet hair and no makeup. Made it to my flight just on time
Flash forward through busy day of work and a night exploring New Orleans… then, another city run in the sun.I found this route on MapMyRun, which looked easy and interesting! MapMyRun is a great resource for runners on the go.
It led me through the city and to a gorgeous park by the art museum.The shade was appreciated since it was approximately 2,000 degrees outside. Also, humidity levels were intense.Running is one of the fastest, cheapest, and loveliest ways to explore a new city, if you ask me. Second are the half-bus, half-car duck tours, and third are segways.Anyways. Despite its sweltering temps, New Orleans scores big running points for having adequate sidewalks, super-flat terrain, and interesting sights. Thanks for hosting me, NOLA! and thanks for the delicious breakfast sandwich.Now I’m headed back to NashVegas. See you soon!
