1. This morning’s run was in probably one of the most runner-friendly towns in the state (and also happens to look like the set of the Gilmore Girls). The sidewalks are soft blacktops rather than the shin-splitting concrete and the roads are rather wide to allow for the multitude of runners in the town. They also kindly mark starting and ending points for different loops and distances around town, as seen in one of the photos. The other is my handwritten GPS because I have no signal in most of the area. I run there a few times a week and am amazed at how many runners I see every time…quite unlike Idaho where I rarely come across another person out running or walking.
