As runners, we have the amazing and unique opportunity to see a lot of various towns, cities, and countrysides from the best possible angle – on the ground. We all run in interesting places at times and it is always nice to snap some photos of what we see and take in the beauty of the landscape or cityscape. In that spirit, I am going to start doing some posts of various places that I might run and photos of what I see on the way. If you would like, send me your cities and photos as well for others to see and so we all know what to look for when we run in those places!
On the Run: The Greek Coast
My options for running around my area are extremely limited due to crazy traffic and not good running surfaces. When I have to extend my run route in my area for a long run, that involves making a very long climb with switchbacks and traffic. Because I wanted to try something different, I continued along the beach and ran through some broken fences and across the sand for a bit to find another nice area to run on. I ran on that until the end when I noticed a dirt path that snaked its way up the cliff. Even though I was at my turnaround spot (mile 9), I decided to head on up to see what the view was like. I was very glad I did as the view was beautiful!
When I got back to the bottom, I had to take a photo of a huge aloe vera (I think) plant. There has to be enough aloe vera in there to sooth any burn in my village!
