Valley Forge

Just a bit over a week ago I had an opportunity to run for a few hours at Valley Forge.

For those of you who want to brush up on the deets…

Some nice trails there both paved and unpaved.

Checked out the housing

Found Mt. Joy

Loved the trails there…

I ran them 3 or 4 times

All in all quite a beautiful place to run.  I got in 15 or so miles.  I would have taken more pictures but my hands were freezing.

When I got back in the car I turned the heat on full blast...  where it stayed for the next 30 minutes while I thawed out heading back into the city...  searching for a resturaunt.

and what is it with Philly???...  the resturants in that city seem to be placed nowhere near the freeway exits.

never fear I did find somewhere to eat.

Man, I hate running in the cold. It just blows! Way to go on a solid run though. I've only been to Philly once, and I was little. I remember the Liberty Bell.

Looks like a beautiful run, even in the cold. So where did you eat?

it's all about pace said...

hey Linae... I found a Ruby Tuesday and put a hurtin' on that salad bar
