Happy National Running Day!

If you haven't yet, I hope you're able to get out there today and go for a little run.

My runs lately have been in the 1 to 3 mile range, so today I thought I'd run a little further. I've been wanting to run out to the Chief Joseph Dam since we arrived in Bridgeport, so I figured this would be a great day to do it. I knew I'd want to take some pictures, so I put a waterproof I thought it might rain camera in my Camelback and headed out.

I ran from the city of Bridgeport across a long bridge and over to the Bridgeport State Park.

At the entrance to the dam, there was a very cool little maze with a unique legend about salmon and mourning doves.

I ran along some beautiful trails with some gorgeous viewpoints of Chief Joseph Dam.

I got a little camera-happy while running and while my run time was less than 60 min 59:31, to be exact, I was gone for over 1 1/2 hours.

In addition to these photos and more, I also shot some video and edited together. You can also view this on my Facebook page.

    1. Aw. Thanks, Chelsea! Miss you, too. With all the stopping for pics and videos, this run felt pretty great. I could have probably gone a bit further, but I didn't want Jeff to worry.

  2. What a beautiful run:) great job! Glad it didn't rain on you:)

    1. There were a few raindrops here and there, but luckily, no downpours.

  3. Very nice run! Great pictures too!

    1. It was probably the most fun I've had on a run in a while. :)
