Week-end was fun, but gotta run.

Time to get back to business with a four-mile run this morning.

A brief warm-up run takes me into the French Quarter just before dawn.

Down Canal Street, I find one of the streetcars about to go int service for the day.

Behind the aquarium, I pause along the Mississippi to enjoy the sunrise.

I love the river in the morning.

Then it's up to Artillery Park, with St. Louis Cathedral in the background.

And back through the French Quarter and Upper Marigny to get home. The day is now underway.

Party-time is fun, but it cannot get in the way of training. Especially not with this election and the possible consequences on the horizon.

Are YOU getting ready?


  1. Do the dogs run with you?

    1. No. Murphy's an idiot who keeps wanting to stop to pee and sniff and he's starting to get up there age-wise. Belle's better and I'm thinking about trying her, but I'm not there yet.

  2. I'm loading mags, does that count??? :-)

  3. I hope you run with your dogs and a gun. that area is unsafe at those times.
    be careful

  4. Gotta get back to reloading. And trade painting for shooting.

    Fabulous pics!
