Urban Parks Run

Pictures by PB

We needed to run about 12 miles today and we needed a new way to go to beat the staleness. We came up with the idea of a themed run - Parks of Edinburgh.

It was a grey, drizzly day and we cleverly timed our run to coincide with pretty much rush hour on a Friday but it was good fun doing something new. Parks we linked up; Leith Links, Victoria Park, Inverleith Park, Princes St. Gardens, The Meadows and the Queen's Park. 12.65 miles. Job done. Saw a few sights along the way and many traffic jams. Good to not be in them.

Next run what will it be? Catholic churches? Tescos of Edinburgh? We shall see.
