my favorite run.

25 May

In Berkeley, it was the Firetrail, during cross-country it was Old Agoura or runs at Lake Sherwood. Everywhere I’ve lived I’ve had that one “favorite run.” After finding that run in Madrid, I know it will be nearly impossible to beat in terms of the insanely high awesome-sights-per-mile rating. Here’s what I see on my favorite run (from my apartment in the Moncloa area to the lake in Casa de Campo and back).

Pretty good for 44 minutes, right? Do any of you have a favorite run? Where does it take you?

Manzanares River, Royal Palace, and the Cathedral. Epic.

if i had to name my single favorite spot in the city, this would be it.

      I like to think I liked Old Agoura because it was pretty, but honestly I think it was the least painful run we did, lol. Juan de Anza was for sure NOT my fav haha
