Back on the Road in Seattle
At the advice of a hotel employee, I headed down to the pier area to run and see if I could find the park he showed me on the Seattle map - Myrtle Edwards Park. I was not disappointed! After you run through that park you run along the water through Elliott Bay Park which has a pedestrian trail and a separate biking trail. I did 2.3 miles north to the end of the park, then back. I was going to try to run back up to Pike's Market via the stairs at Pike Street but when I began to run up the stairs I realized I didn't have the energy to keep running (I had just completed over 4.5 miles) so I stopped the Garmin there. Still, 4.7 easy miles in about 57 min and change - not too shabby.
I think I found my running place for the week! :-) As I ran, I wondered if Lizzie Lee has run down here. Too bad she is also on business travel back east!
Hopefully I will have more Seattle adventures to share before I go home.
