Washington Park and Wednesday’s Run


Yesterday was another nice day and I decided to go for a walk at lunch. I walked up to Washington Park (as usual) but this time I walked a lot faster so I would have time to walk around the park a little bit instead of just turn around immediately.

Washington Park

Washington Park is a humongous park in the middle of downtown Portland. It’s one of my favorite places to take people visiting from other cities. There’s so much to do there. And the view of Portland is amazing.

Spring

Spring is definitely in full bloom! The trees were blooming everywhere in the park.

Flowers

Washington Park also has miles and miles of trails for hiking and running. I’m waiting for the weather to improve a bit before I try trail running with my friend Robyn. Hopefully the muddy trails will dry out soon.

My walk during lunch yesterday burned about 225 calories. Nice! That along with the 451 calories I burned on the bike trainer = a very good workout!

Today I had a nice run during lunch. I was famished by the time I got back and devoured my lunch.

Today’s Run Nike+ Stats:

Time: 36:30

Tonight, Michael and I are meeting a friend for dinner–FRENCH FOOD! 🙂

  1. What a gorgeous park! The reason I LOVE outdoor running 🙂

    • It IS gorgeous! When the rose garden part of the park is in bloom I will post more pics. Breathtaking. One of these days I will run in Washington Park. I’m intimidated by the hills! -Lisa 🙂

  2. I keep telling my husband we should move somewhere out of state. Portland looks pretty beautiful.
