After lunch, I went running with my boyfriend around Lake Merced, which is about a 4.5 mile run according to online. One of my major goals this break was to run more, and I didn't want to be lonely so I dragged my boyfriend with me on all my runs, but he doesn't protest because he likes the exercise too :) He is also a good encouragement because he runs the entire way and I can only do half run half walk :( We have been running everyday for a week now and I must say it feels great! I honestly look forward to running the next day and I'm sad that when I go back to LA we will only have the track to run around. We choose a different place every day to get some variety and different scenery! My boyfriend has never been to any of the places we went before so I thought that running in those places are a good way to show him around new areas while burning some calories!
We have been to Lake Merced and the beach a few times, and stow lake inside Golden Gate Park. We have always tried to go in the mornings but find it very hard to wake up lol... So we go at around 3-4PM and finish by 5 just before sunset! Tomorrow we plan to go to the beach again but on the Cliff House side so we can take a walk around the area also afterwards! I really hope that we keep up this running back in LA though!!
Beautiful beach view just before sunset!
