We headed out the door and I was looking for a park in Fredericksburg that is a "great place to run and bike" with paved paths. I headed to old town Fredericksburg and never found the place. It looked like it was the middle of downtown according to the address. I guess they do have paved sidewalks, but not really what I had in mind when I read the write up on line.
So I continued driving and saw a sign for some Battlefields and Ferry Farms (George Washington's boyhood home) And next to the sign it had Bird Watching trail. That sounds like it might be a nice place to run. So Riley and I pulled in to old Georgie's old place.
|Gardens..not a good place to run...|
|Me in the woods..luckily no snakes were spotted..I am not a woodsy person b/c of snake sightings!|
Not a lot of places to hike. Riley and I tried to find some trails. There was one that was a really hilly loop and probably less than a mile..not exactly what I was hoping for. So George has a nice place to walk, but not so much for running. I even took off into some fields, but it was large loop not adding much distance to a run.
Looks like I may be doing a long run around my neighborhood again tomorrow. Then maybe I will head back out and try to find those battlefields. Battlefields are probably pretty well kept up and large I would think. Why is it so hard to find a great place to run??
