Here is me prior to my walk/run this morning taken with Joe's camera phone (phone photo Friday anyone?) I have been taking Nago (the subject of my last post) with me for a short warm-up around the block and then dropping her off before the bulk of my walk/run.
I am so beyond ecstatic that the weather has finally cooled down enough for me to go on walk/runs outside in our neighborhood. I love it. I look forward to it. It is invigorating. I took my phone with me this morning so I could take some pictures during my workout.
We have A LOT OF quail around here. And I mean A LOT. One of the retired neighbors puts out seed for them but they cross the street from the field across the way to get there. So someone made a sign to help people be more aware. I thought it was so cute!
One thing I really LOVE, LOVE, LOVE about our new neighborhood is that we have a quite a few mature trees. I can actually see the change of the seasons. You have no idea how rare this is when you live in the desert.
Here is the hill I walk up to get my blood pumping. I can't even imagine running up this hill.
View from the top. Our house is quite a ways up this hill so don't think I walked all that way.
More typical desert views while on the run portion of my workout.
I wish I could have captured the essence of landscape I encounter better than I did, but I guess this is better than nothing!
