Is it Monday already? + an amazing house in NYC

I have been busy figuring out a new blog layout….hopefully you can see it all in a few days (eek!). I’m still just dabbling with the whole coding/html/css thing but even so, the new layout  will be leaps and bounds better than this template.

I LOVE creative people! People that do things differently–that think outside of not just the square, but the circle, the triangle, and the octagon. I would never in a million years have thought to do what these people did… have you seen this video? Did you love it or hate it? I had to watch it like five times. Whether you like it or not, you have to admit it was pretty darn creative. Hope this brightens your Monday!

 

work out: at the japanese tea gardens

Running is the best way to see the details of wherever you are. Here in San Francisco, details are in abundance and it’s easy to miss the many  treasures that are hidden in this bustling city. The park is just 2 blocks away from my flat, so there will be many future posts about all the treasures hidden there.

Enter the Japanese gardens, where nature and architecture take you into another culture and century.

IMG_3908For me, running has been a great way to see the sights & get a work out for both my mind and body; I really believe that the mind+body+spirit is connected and that exercising does more than just physical fitness.

So you can say that running is a way to knock out two birdies with out stone: getting a great work out and sight seeing your city. Do you have any beautiful places near you, that you love to run at? Do share.
