Run-Seeing in London

This weekend's long run was extra special because I'm in London! I'm here for work meetings until next Sunday, and I loved having the new run scenery. I went to London once before 8 years ago, but it's different to be here on my own and to explore without a tour group.

On Sunday, I headed out to run in the perfect 40 degree temperatures. My plan was to run toward the River Thames and then to turn right to see Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and Hyde Park. Running off the jet lag felt great and run sightseeing is the best! I'll leave you with photos for the rest of the post.

  1. Love London. How fun to get to go running around all that! I did a bit of run-seeing in Munich and Vienna and it's so fun! Enjoy your trip!

  2. Love your photos! I love run-exploring when I'm on vacation too. Your "dorky selfie" is adorable :)
