The Perfect Run

Sometimes, when you go for a run...you find inspiration and beauty in your surroundings. Yesterday, my sole sister and I went for a morning run at Glen Island Park in New Rochelle and that's exactly what we encountered. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE!

I've visited Glen Island Park for birthday parties, picnics, etc. but it's always in the summertime - midday when there are so many people at the park. Yesterday morning was quiet and serene. Just us, a sprinkle of other runners, ducks, geese, and the beauty of mother earth.

At Glen Island Park, you encounter a castle, war remnants, sculptures, a beach, boat harbor, the Long Island Sound, and silence. It was so perfect that I didn't want to stop running but we had to go to handle the rest of our day's responsibilities.

I didn't have my camera but below you can find some pictures of the park courtesy of city-data.com and westchester.gov:
