I saw your headline and was thinking you were stuck on a treadmill. I confess I do live in a place where I can drive a short distance and have some nice mountains in the background and tree-lined places to run in.

However, our primary running area that my husband prefers for pure social isolation is a giant gravel parking lot used during normal times for RV parking at the local Horses in the Sun shows. It’s got a big pile of rubble in the one corner and some strange buildings that we aren’t quite sure what they are. However….. it also has a very graceful willow tree that we park by and there are offshoots to that lot that I wander down to add some distance. I will love my route and when I don’t I will picture you in Egypt — a hot mess and I will remember your advice — to love the run I’m doing!
