We all have rituals, little things we do to make every day a little richer, a little more Glorious. I adore living in New York City, but growing up surrounded by nature as I did, it’s important for me to spend time outdoors on a regular basis, and one of my favorite spots to go is Prospect Park in Brooklyn. The mornings here are shady and cool, the roads still empty of heavy traffic, and it’s my favorite time of day to run the loop of the park’s main road. It’s a little over three miles, and when I factor in the distance from my apartment to the southern-most access point, it takes around 50-minutes to complete. Adding to the fun of running is the chance to listen to some awesome music for one lovely, uninterrupted hour. I’ve been all about this new playlist I created, particularly the first song “Sweet Disposition” by The Temper Trap—the melody is totally uplifting and kicks off every run on the right note. Here are some shots from around the park. What are your favorite spots to exercise, and what workout tunes are you loving right now?
