My wife's travelling in Scotland with her sister for a week, so I thought I would get some fresh air to keep myself from feeling too cooped up. Decided to go for an easy-pace 10 mile jog on one of my favorite trails: the tow path along Carnegie Lake. Not sure if there is much of a fitness or running community on Steemit yet. I've seen a couple posts here and there. Mostly I'm just a casual runner at the moment, but I love it! I'll keep posting whenever I have any interesting runs. Please comment below if you're a runner or into fitness so we can all get to know each other :)
5 miles in and about to turn around!
There is a series of small dams periodically along the trail.
Rusty old signs and fences pop up along the trail.
Beautiful river/lake on one side, and a Jurassic Park like forest on the other.
My attempt at an artsy panorama shot.
Scooby-Doo gummies after 5 miles to keep up the energy :)
I swear a dinosaur could walk out of here and it wouldn't surprise me.
I saw two beavers and a good-sized turtle along the route.
A couple of deer showed up along the path, but they didn't stick around.
Average pace was somewhere around 9:15, or so. Just taking it easy.
