I was given a map for runners at the Omni Parker house, where we are staying in Boston. After a quick trip down charming Cambridge Avenue, I got confused trying to cross the Longfellow Bridge and ended up running along the Esplanade instead of crossing the Charles river. What good luck! It was a perfect spring day, joggers were everywhere, the river to my right was sparkly and practically smiling and waving at me. Just beyond the river and just across the street, gorgeous old buildings. To my left, little streams and quaint little bridges. I wish I had brought my camera, because every ten feet I wanted to stop my run and either hug a tree or gasp with pleasure and soak up the view- what I loved best were the cherry blossom-ish trees and drapey willows against the backdrop of the river. I could have run forever!
Pros: Incredibly beautiful
Cons: not a one
