What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

Friday Five Linkup - Things I Like About My Favorite City

*affiliate links


Today, I'm participating in the Friday Five Linkup from Eat Pray Run DC, You Signed Up For What, and Mar On The Run. And today's theme is 5 Things I Like About My Favorite City.

I'm from Starkville, Mississippi. But I currently live in Dauphin, Pennsylvania. So I'd like to tell you 5 things about the area that I live in.

1. To me, it's beautiful. Don't get me wrong. I'm a Southern girl, and I totally miss the South. But I think where I live is beautiful. I love the Mountains, and I love the Rivers. Here is a sneak peek from my run here in Dauphin.



If you enjoy hills, Dauphin is a great place to run.

2. The Fort Hunter / Harrisburg area doesn't disappoint either. Here is a view from one of my runs. I love the Rockville Bridge.



You can get a mixture of flat or hills, depending on which route that you take. 

3. We have what's called the Capital Area Greenbelt. And this is where a lot of my runs with my running group take place. Once again, you can choose flat along the river, or hills in the Wildwood Area. It's a very popular area to run, and very pretty. 

4. SNOW. I love snow. I get giddy every time I see it in the forecast. I'm not a big fan of the bitter cold that we are having right now. But I love the white stuff. Honestly, in the Winter time, I can't think of anything more beautiful than the sun shining and everything everywhere is covered in white snow. 



5. Last but not least, Hershey Park. Lil Man and I went all Summer long. And honestly I think we both still miss going. We had a blast. I debated on whether we should buy season passes, and I am so so so very glad that we did. We went most days out of the week. And we created memories that will last a lifetime. 




So, there you have it - My Friday Five things that I like about my favorite/current City.

  2. Dauphin is a beautiful area. We used to drive through on the way to visit my friends at college. It's nice to be out in the country yet still close to a few different cities if you need more to do.

    1. I agree! We are within driving distance, but far enough away not to have to deal with the traffic.

  5. I love these great running spaces and parks, Amy; it's so nice that you have these places to enjoy. I really do NOT miss living in a city that is primarily covered in concrete - ha! Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy some (cold) sunshine.
