Run Porn: 33rd – 41st of 2013

Des Moines, Iowa Edition!

Sorry it has been a while since I indulged your Run Porn fix.

I was out on another tour with my improvised Broadway musical these past weeks.

This tour brought me to Des Moines, Iowa.

And Des Moines, Iowa brought me some really shitty weather.

This is the view from my hotel room.

It snowed, it rained, it was windy, and I was pissed.

This meant I was in the Marriott Hotel gym more than I would have liked.

Generally, I limit my indoor gym to a few days a week to get my resistance training in. But, in this case, it was really my only option.

Though there were some perks.

Generally, I would be the only one in the gym. Which is great. My workout time is my time.

I also got to go for a swim.

It was pretty great going for a swim in the perfectly temperate pool while the rain rat-a-tat-tatted on
the  skylight glass overhead.

Out of my 10 day stint in Dez Moy Nez, I did get a few days of run fun.

And there were some great views.

I love running over bridges. It makes me feel like I am in a sports montage.

I even punch the air. Sometimes…..

And where there are bridges….

….you are sure to find water.

I find being around water is absolutely necessary for me.

I don’t know how long I can keep living by bodies of water. But I will fight tooth and nail to keep water-side living a staple in my life.

The air is better when skimming the water’s edge.

The sound of water lapping up against the shore is extremely soothing.

When I am near water, I feel like I can find my center.

This is just one more reason on the list of Why I Don’t Think I Can Live In New York Forever.

There was even a tiny baby pier that jutted out into the water.

I was a total, sit cross legged, close my eyes, breathe deep, meditate-y nerd.

It was wonderful!

HAPPY RUNNING!
