2nd Fun Seattle Morning Run

Again I’m copying the concept of Ed Kohler by mapping out runs… without the mapping. A big reason for this is because of the SMX Seattle conference that just wrapped up. I’m hoping to provide a dedicated post regarding the conference, but face it. If you’re following the conference at all, you’re already receiving enough blog posts and tweets regarding it. I’ll post my thoughts later.

So, before the conference this morning I left the Marriott and started a northbound run at the Bell Street train station on Alaskan Way.

Ran up Alaskan Way, turned up some hills and wound up at Olympic Park and found art.

Ran up Lower Queen Anne and found a Dick’s Burger location. This rivals the Lions Tap for you fellow Twin Cities readers. I did not stop to eat. It was 7:00am.

Took a Mercer Street run and saw the Queen Anne hill. It’s steep. I did not run up the hill.

Ran back toward Seattle Center and saw where the Sonics used to play. I cannot cheer for the OKC Thunder 😦

You can’t beat the old VW Bus in the Seattle Center.

You can’t help but taking a pic of the Space Needle

    I dig the posts and the mini tours of Seattle. I don’t think you need to say you’re stealing from Ed — good ideas are worth sharing.

    Thanks Aaron. The runs and everything else were fun. Flying home today. I want to stay another 3 or 50 days.
