After surviving Saturday’s zombie apocalypse, I managed to take some pretty photos along Percy Warner Park’s 11.2 mile course. Enjoy.
I don’t know the dog’s owners but I felt a lot of compassion when I saw this. Just thought I’d help spread the word.
I. Love. Fall.
I enjoyed seeing the bright green moss against the fallen leaves.
Harpeth Hills Golf Course is along side the park. The nice men who work in the clubhouse let me use the lady’s room (thankfully). Here’s a photo of the course taken inside the clubhouse.
I’m experimenting with different types of energy bars. Shortly after I left the clubhouse I ate a Lara Bar. About two miles later I learned I can’t stomach them while running. Don’t worry, I finished the course without incident, but I think I’ll stay with Cliff Bites from now on.
I took this at about Mile 8. Every foot strike hurt. Must do more hill training!
This is my running friend Lynn’s favorite spot on the course. When she runs with me, she always stops here for a moment and breathes a little prayer. I ask her to pray that I don’t have a heart attack. See the church steeple in the distance?
Another shot of Lynn’s favorite place. I believe this is Lea Heights which you’ll read about at the bottom of this post.
This marker is at the top of a huge climb complete with switchbacks. I don’t know who Lunsford is but at the moment I shot this I loathed him (or her).
One mile to go.
Here’s some info about the park.
I hope you enjoyed this virtual tour of one of my favorite places.
