Riverside Run

One thing I have missed about Utah is running with my mom and sister. I miss running outside in the beautiful weather. Getting fresh air. The treadmill just doesn't cut it for me. I had heard there was a running path along the Connecticut river, so I asked KC to go with me on Saturday morning. We had to park at the Basketball Hall of Fame and walk in an overpass above the train tracks to get to the trail.

The walkway was gorgeous. Minus the sketchy people and sleeping bums. I definitely wouldn't go there by myself. But with KC there it was fine. We enjoyed a good few miles of running and had beautiful scenery to top it off. Most of the trail you could only see trees, but every so often you would get a great view of the river.

And on the way back to the car we took a short detour to take some pictures of the Hall of Fame. It is an awesome building. And definitely the pride and joy of Springfield.

And I love this picture of KC. Why does he get to look so cute after a run?


  1. If it makes you feel any better, mom and I have totally been slacking on running. We've been like 5 times since you've been gone.

    Thanks for the birthday card and call. You're awesome :)

  2. The hot tub is in the backyard right now. You are more than welcome to stay with us at Christmas, if we can get our basement back together by then :)

  3. Hey there! What a fun trail you found. Very cool. I'm so proud of KC for taking you out to see cool things-you guys are doing great! WE miss you so much but it looks like you are having too much fun and new adventures to miss any of us! :)

  4. man that trail looks really fun!! When we come out we may have to run that. I am glad you guys are able to get out and see everything every once in a while.

    Let's chat soon! Call me if you get any down time at lunch or anything..... I love you guys!

  5. Hey Vieve. We miss you guys too much! Tonight was crazy. Somehow the evening evolved into a full on casino night! Woot, woot! Hilary started making notes about the upcoming Halloween Party, completed with candy casino. We all got jazzed about how to get you and KC out here! This is insane. We want to see you now, if not before. Just know that you are loved and if you can't make, we'll think of the pondering banana and his sweet gypsy girl. Talk soon, Mom
