The girls and I are in Ottawa for a little visit and a wedding. So nice to visit this beautiful city where both girls were born, we called home for many years and have so many cherished friends and family. Today I continued my marathon training by going for a run along the canal. It was gorgeous.   

Here are the observations I made as I was counting down the miles:

Thank you Ottawa for the following:

  • Clean restrooms
  • Nice humidity free weather that is 20 degrees cooler than NYC
  • A relatively flat pathway
  • Sporadic water fountains 
  • Beautiful scenery 
  • The polite head nods and hearty good mornings from other runners
  • Courteous cyclists who share the pathway
  • Clear running pathways
  • Free parking 

The only downside I noticed is that the leaves are already starting to turn. Eeek! 

Nice to be back for a visit and good to enjoy the beauty of the Nation’s Capitol. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
