Seeing the posts of you wonderful people can occasionally give a a little twinge of jealousy. The reason being is that I live in central London and when I see the gorgeous pictures of countryside and the sea I can't help thinking how lucky some people are to be able to run in such lovely surroundings. However, on a very hot run last week I had to stop for water and a breather and I looked at my view and thought, actually even a city has beauty in it's own way, so I took a couple of pictures to share. Keep smiling every one.😃

Oh yes, everywhere has beauty, and that's the beauty of running - you will find more and more lovely routes. I think your pic is grand, and it will change with the seasons. And you are so lucky to run near water.
That is,stunning...and has a timeless beauty all of its own...thank you. Lucky you !
What a lovely photo, thank you - I miss the buzz of a big city, I really do, there’s always so much to see and do. Well done on your run, and I will aim to keep smiling 😁.
Don't forget we've got some fabulous parks you can run in too. Greenwich can't be that far from you (a bit hilly though, but you'll want that after graduation).
Great photo! I only get to run through city centres on organised events - and of course due to COVID there have been few of them recently! I have run in London, Bath and Bristol - all such beautiful cities. Run proud!👍 😊🏃♀️
That photo makes me want to run there, such beauty across the water, it looks so perfectly clear with the reflection of the buildings, A little twinge of jealousy from here 😀 thank you for sharing your part of the world for us to enjoy
Some of my most memorable runs have been in central London. It’s a fun place to run and so much to see and so much variety. I usually run down from Islington to the Thames or along Regent’s Canal. But the parks are lovely and soft underfoot too which really helps.
The Thames River path has some great views I’ve never run on it but walked some, very touristy usually around Greenwich but just locals now!
Wow I'd like to run there too that would be fantastic!
That is fabulous, thank you for posting! At the moment I'm limited to the playing field at the end of my street, maybe next time I'll pretend I'm running by the Thames 😊
That's a lovely photo of the River Thames and the skyscrapers, London has many lovely parks that you can run in and a long run or walk by the side of the river, perhaps if you are lucky you might even spot a dolphin or even a stray whale while running, yes, there have been a few whales seen as far up the river as London Bridge.
I recognise where you are. The river is Beautiful isn’t it - especially early morning when it belongs to the birds. I live in lime house. Happy running!!
I live at CoL too. I`t a lovely period of the year to run outdoors.
Another London Lover here....Im in Paddington and plan to run the Grand Union Canal when graduated. I love Docklands, very different from west London. We can always drive to the countryside to run but country people can't drive to the city cos there's nowhere to park!!!😂 Enjoy your runs.
North London, Muswell Hill here- I run mostly around Alexander Palace- I'll wave to you from the top as can see the city from there! I'd really like a river to run alongside tho 😒
I'll wave back. I live next to a manmade viewpoint that gives a good view around london so I may just see a little wave in the far distance 😉
Not what you're looking for?
