Runnin’ on a river

Today I tried out the Riverside running trail along the green banks of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, OK–5 miles of Tulsa beauty. Good birding, nice scene, just enough people for comfort, and not too far of a drive from my parent’s house. I liked it so much, I couldn’t quit running and also decided to take pictures to share it with you. There were just enough trees for shade and a cool breeze resulting in ideal weather condition for a longer run than the norm lately. The smoldering heat in California and then here has been tough on the running progress the past few weeks! Looking forward to the fall weather…and no excuses;)
