Liberty State Park

The last 2 weekends have included travel for me. First up was a trip to Pennsylvania to celebrate Atlas’ birthday with Dave’s sweet family. I’ve been to Pennsylvania a handful of times before, but never in the fall. The drive from New York to Pennsylvania was the prettiest drive of my life (it was also the loudest because Atlas screamed for 90% of the trip).

I knew I had to sneak in a run while we were visiting Dave’s family because I couldn’t pass up the chance to see all the beautiful fall foliage. I also ate a lot of birthday cake so that always motivates me to put on my running shoes. Since Dave’s family lives in a state park,  I told Dave that I strategically packed my Nike camo running shirt so the bears wouldn’t see me while I was running. It worked. photo 13 days after getting home from Pennsylvania, I was rushing out the door to catch a plane to Memphis for a Juice Plus conference. I took exactly 2 pictures during my 48 hours in Tennessee. It was a whirlwind of a trip, but the more I learn about Juice Plus the more I want everyone I know taking the product. Fruits and vegetables are where it’s at!

By Sunday afternoon, Dave & I were exhausted from all the travel (he was in upstate NY for a conference while I was in TN. Ob & Marley watched Atlas while we were gone. Just kidding. My mom was here to help). Since we were both fighting the urge to take a 4 hour nap, we knew some vitamin D would do us good so we headed to Liberty State Park with Atlas and the dogs. If you ever want to snap some beautiful photos of the NYC skyline and the statue of liberty, I suggest heading to Liberty State Park.

Atlas had fun playing in his little blue car, chasing a ball around (kids are a lot like dogs), eating grass (seriously, so much like dogs) and running free. photo 1-1

Liberty State Park also makes for a pretty run. It has a long boardwalk that allows you to log a lot of miles while taking in breathtaking views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, downtown Jersey City and the Statue of Liberty. Definitely check it out if you’re ever in the area.
