On the run in the old neighborhood

Did she get thrown off of her horse?

You are reminding us that we should get more exercise. Too bad that a tennis injury to my ankle prevents me from running, or I would surely be out exercising regularly. Sure I would.

It's funny that Lois Anne can stay ahead of you even with your new 2 speed, orange golf cart from Ocala Fleet Farm! Well, maybe that's safer for you to have a slow cart so you don't fall off and crack your head open! BTW, does your golf cart have a CD player so you can play your Lawrence Welk CDs while sputtering along?!

VP said...

Not a bad neighborhood, it looks like a park. Still following on a bike?

Andreea said...

Looks like a nice place to run (much nicer than a treadmill in a gym)

Bibi said...

Ah, the perfect stroll (not jog) for Bibi and me!

Mo said...

What a great place for a run. In response to your comment. No I am not a teacher at the university.

Jim Klenke said...

Today is my running day, ugh. Nice reminder.

I don't think, in the entire town of Brattleboro, there is a stretch of flat as flat as this flat.

I love the canopy on this street. The way a neighborhood should be.

A great wide-angle perspective. You really do get an awesome "small town" fee from the shots of Ocala you display. Big enough to have an urban feel to it, yet small enough to not have a big city feel. I like this. Especially the way everything kinda funnels down to bottom center.

I love the huge trees adn slightly unkempt air. Delightful, and beautifully set off and put in perspective with the runner (which may be . . . who?).

Jacob said...

@ Tapirgal - the runner is, of course, none other than Lois Anne, out doing her usual four miles...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Looks like a lovely well-established neighbourhood.

Cezar and Léia said...

ohmigod, I need to learn more with my friend Lois Anne.
In other words, I need to exercise myself and now! :)
As Luna for sure could say, paws up to Lois Anne! Congrats!
Adorable neighborhood, I liked a lot those mail boxes.I think this beautiful atmosphere is so Americana!

I will be glad when it gets warm enough to wear shorts like that again!

The Joys of Running
1. For every mile you run, you add one minute to your life. This enables you, at the age of 85, to spend an additional five months in a nursing home at $5,000/month.

2. The only reason I took up running was to hear heavy breathing again.

3. I joined a health club last year, spending $400 in the process. I haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.

4. I have to exercise early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing.

5. I like long walks, especially when people who annoy me take them.

6. The advantage to exercising every day is that you die healthier.

7. I have flabby thighs but fortunately my stomach covers them.

8. If you are going to take up cross-country skiing, it helps to start with a small country.

9. I don't jog; it makes me spill my milk shake.

10. Running makes the ice jump right out of my glass.

11. Actually, I don't exercise at all. If we were meant to touch our toes, we would have them farther up on our body.

That looks so peaceful. I don't run, but if I did, that would be the place to do it.

Jarart said...

Ok, Allison cracked me up. Keep on keepin' on!

Small City Scenes said...

Hey, I am back---yikes!!!

Do you miss the old neighbor hood?
Nice runner---how come you married someone 86 years younger than you? heehee.

The pic 'Evening on the Skagit' is just up the road from me, not on the way to my Mother's.

Great jumping shots on the previous post.

I will scroll through all I missed. MB

cieldequimper said...

Lol @ MB. I really admire your lovely wife. And this road.

valeria said...

What a perfect place for running. It looks really quiet and lovely

Halcyon said...

Are you missing the old days already?

Trillian said...

Great place to run, it's seems so quiet...nice shot!

Nice capture of the moment, and of mood. Lovely.
