Window Wednesday

I’m making up what I hope to be a regular Wednesday post.  It’s window Wednesday, as in a window into my world.  I hope to provide a glimpse into my training, my life, my “window” with a picture every Wednesday.  So here goes………….

A Saturday Morning at the Niskyauna Bike Path

I can’t even count the number of runs that I’ve done from this little train station.  They’ve been countless in the last year in a half.  This is a very special spot……. a gathering place for runners, bikers, walkers, rollerbladers and more.

I’ve seen the seasons change from this place.  I’ve watched turtles dig nests along the trail. I’ve watched a Bald Eagle soar from driftwood in the River.  I’ve trudged through snow and skated over ice.  I’ve also seen the leaves change to beautiful shades of orange, red, and yellow.  I’ve had the opportunity to partake in hours of conversations.  I’ve made friends here that are unlike any others that I know.  I’ve seen people in pain and in triumph.  And after all of this, it is one of my favorite places to run.

Do you have a favorite running spot?  And why is it special to you?
