A RUNNING VIEW – NEW YORKJanuary 26, 2015
As we lace up our running shoes and march full steam into the fitness battlefield, the hunt for the perfect jogging route ensues. Some prefer open fields and good dose of nature, others the urban delights of their beloved city. Whatever your preference – a scenic route goes a long way when you’re trying to keep up the pace.
And so, we’re tracking down fitness fanatics from around the world to lay eyes on their running view in the cities they call home. In our first edition, we asked UO lady, Amy Tolley (senior operations manager at Herald Square, NYC) to snap away at the sights and scenes from her morning jog across the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York.
“Environment and scenery is key for me to stay motivated while I’m running, which is why I love heading over the Williamsburg Bridge. My route is like a movie montage of my life in NYC, encompassing all the things that I love — the East Village, (the neighborhood where I call home), inspirational quotes found in street art, and the iconic NYC skyline. It’s an escape that allows me to clear my mind, relax, and enjoy the city.” – Amy Tolley
“A little Lower East Side vibe on my walk to the bridge.”
“One of the many inspiring quotes to be found on Williamsburg Bridge.”
“More LES words of wisdom to keep me going.”
“My first stop after the first major incline of the bridge. I keep my eye on this to make it happen.”
“This is where I stop, and take it all in.”
