Each Saturday I drive an hour to Brisbane to run with my Saturday Sisters. We moved to the Gold Coast two years ago, but I still keep my running date with my Sisters. We run from New Farm usually out to Southbank and back following the Brisbane River. Last Saturday, the weather was picture perfect. A sharp comparison to the heavy rains we experienced over the Easter holiday break.
Starting my weekend with a run and connecting with friends is good not only for my physical health as I get my cardio workout done. It is also great for my mind and spirit as I connect with friends who I’ve run with for over 10 years. It is the perfect example of my philosophy of an holistic approach to health through body, mind and spirit.
On days like Saturday when the sky is so clear and blue, running with friends – well, it doesn’t get much better than that.
Take a run with me through beautiful Brisbane City
Let me take you through part of my Saturday run and discover the beautiful city of Brisbane and the Brisbane River with all of her bridges. Brisbane has a number of bridges with two more being added in the future. Some are pedestrian and cyclists only which is great as you don’t need to negotiate traffic. My favourite is the Kurilpa Bridge which was a later addition and of course the William Jolly Bridge which was built from 1928 – 1932 and is heritage listed.
I love seeing the City Cats gliding by and the new baby ‘Kity Kats’ which make a commute to the CBD and surrounds pleasant and relaxing.
I hope you enjoyed running through Brisbane City with me and perhaps you will join me for another run in the future. What is it like where you live? Do you run or take a wander and discover where you live?
