Scenes From A Saturday Morning Run

Those of you that follow me on Instagram know that I constantly take pictures when I'm out on my long runs.  In fact, it's rare for me to do a long run without my phone.  Sure it adds roughly 15-20 minutes to the time I'm actually out but I don't mind, especially if it's nice out.  We live right by Lake Ontario, it's literally at the bottom of our street so you can see it if you stand on our driveway and look down the street.  That's part of what attracted us to our neighbourhood.  I can run down the street and in less than 5 minutes I'm in a park, on a bike path that winds it's way along the lake.  You can't beat that.  I love running along the lake so I generally run the same out and back route every weekend, unless I feel like getting some hill work in. 

This is a collection of images from my Saturday Morning Runs from the last year.  Enjoy!

Do you run with your phone?  If so are you a picture taker?

It's soooo beautiful there! Peaceful and tranquil. I can see why you go there frequently. I'd enjoy those surroundings so much! Look forward to more!

Beautiful places to run! I have my phone with me but I rarely stop to take pics. I think I will then before I know it the run has ended and not a single pic was taken.

That's it, I'm moving to Canada and you can help me with my speed. ;) Those pictures are amazing, Phaedra. So beautiful; thank you for sharing.

Yes! I love running with my phone and taking pics, though they're not quite as gorgeous as those. That last one is just crazy gorgeous.

Ha ha ha..I love your pics though! I really love that last pic too. It was a absolutely gorgeous fall day out and I was totally blown away by all the colours.
