Ask anyone who knows me personally and they’ll tell you, I’m not the best runner. However, that doesn’t stop me from trying. It’s one of the easiest ways to exercise on the road, you don’t need equipment and best of all? It’s free.
Right now, I’m in Singapore. I’m only here for a short time – 5 days – but I’ve packed my running gear. Here’s why: You never know what you might see.
To prove this, I wanted to share some of the photos I’ve taken running during my most recent world travels. All of the photos in this post were shot with my iPhone4, taken with me when I run.
Starting with a run in Lund, Sweden. After a gorgeous afternoon visiting friends, I went for a run before settling in for the evening. If not for that decision, I would never have seen this view.
Just another reason why no-one regrets exercise:
Visiting family in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, I went for a run just prior to a storm and ended up with taking some shots along the way. Here are two of my favourites:
When sailing in the Ionian Islands in Greece, I woke up earlier than most of my travelling companions and would head out for a run to see the port first thing and get my bearings:
I also hit the footpath when in Oxford, United Kingdom:
Even when I’m at home, I’m surprised by the beauty that constantly surrounds us. I might be biased, but you just have to look for it. Can you really argue with me?
Ok, so it probably helps that my exercise in Sydney always occurs around sunrise. That said, it remains gorgeous in the afternoons:
I can’t wait to head out for a run and see what I might find in Singapore. Stay tuned!
What is the best thing you’ve seen when out exercising?
