There are a couple benefits to being lost in a strange city.  In case it's been a while, here's what I've discovered:

1.  Anatomy lesson.  You might have forgotten that you had calves, quads, hamstrings, knees or ankles.  This is particularly true if you live in a city that's flat and you're visiting a city with hills, for example.  I promise:  you won't forget your muscles long.  In fact, you may even discover muscles you didn't know you had.

2.  Bonus workout.  Just when you thought you couldn't possibly squeeze in a workout for the day, you end up walking 4 miles.  Yup.  4.  Not me, of course... I'm referring to a "friend."

That doesn't look like a candle.
3.  Discovery.  You may have no effing clue where your actual destination is located, but you sure as hell can locate a butcher, a baker and a candlestick-maker.  Just let me know if you need any recommendations.


  1. That's definitely not a candle. What are they all doing in the tub, anyway?

  2. "A butcher, a baker and a candlestick-maker." Kind of reminds me of the old Run RMC song "Peter Piper." Why does my mind remember things like that but I can not remember to pick up milk when I leave the home to go to the grocery store.


  3. I love running in new cities, great way to explore!

  4. Seriously, you can knock off a ton of miles in a city without even realizing how far you've gone.

  5. Always enjoy your posts. Cracking me up over here. You have great "friends". Have a super weekend!!!
