My favorite thing about traveling since starting my running streak is being forced out of my comfort zone to run in so many new places. Today I took a relaxing slow two mile jog through a lovely neighborhood in Waterloo, Illinois. The temperature was cool but the sun was warm and the scenery was fantastic. The rolling hills in this part of the state are a welcome visual reprieve from the flat farmland in the central part of the state. I will take a minute to add that I love finding places where my whole family can be physically active while we travel too. We went to the City Museum in St. Louis with the whole family last night and I highly recommend it for fun for all ages! It was an amazing experience and a great place for reflection on how we can better repurpose old buildings and other items we consider disposable in our modern society.
