So while in VA I am able to go to some old stomping grounds and yesterday I went to Jon's favorite place on earth to run - Burke Lake. I took my niece and nephew (but forgot the camera) an we had a picnic and played at one of the playgrounds for 2 hours.
Why you ask is this Jon's favorite place to run? - Here are the answers I can come up with: 1. Good memories 2. It is a 5 mile loop (leisurely run for him) so no seeing the same thing twice 3. there is no cars trying to hit you or people yelling at you 4. it is a trail run - easier on your knees. There has not been a year we have been married that he has not mentioned running Burke Lake - he loves this run and weather. I am hoping that when he comes in December it won't be snowing too bad and he will be able to run it one day- I know it won't be cold to him no matter what the weather since he will come from Alaska. He does PT there outside and I bet it will be closer to 0 (or negatives) and 30 will feel nice to him!
If you ask my niece and nephew we went to Jon's favorite playground in the world - they didn't quite understand the run park but they are 2 and 4. I let them know I am sure uncle Jon would love this playground but he liked to be the people we saw running more.
