An Ideal Running Path

This path by the Vedder River is near my sister's house. It is flat, smooth, well maintained, and perfect for running especially as there are marker posts every kilometer. A small thing perhaps but it makes the path even more useful for training.

Another good thing is that dogs must be kept on a leash. There is however a nearby field with a designated pound where the dogs can run free. In effect this is an informal club as the owners chat with each other whilst the dogs also socialise and run around in groups. It is odd but whenever I see dogs on leashes pass each other they bark and jump and have to be restrained by their owners. Here, without the need to show off, they seem to get along fine.

Recreation facilities do not have to be ornate – opening up access to beautiful areas is enough
