My sorority's national convention was in downtown Pittsburgh this past weekend, Thursday-Sunday, so I took the time to ensure I got some running time in with Shannon and Cathryn as tour guides. Our hotel was downtown in the Bigelow Square area, not far from Point State Park, Duquesne, and some other really cool landmarks in downtown. Shannon and Cathryn came and picked us up at 6:15 am on Friday to drive to the Point and get in some miles.
Pretty much going to be all photos, but you'll get why I could imagine running here all the time. The river reminded me a lot of Austin's Town Lake area and was a great place to run - minus the fact that it was crazy humid that morning, it was perfect all around.
|Gorgeous morning scenery!|
|Pirates weren't home this weekend, but at least we got to crash PNC Park!|
|I made a new friend.|
|North Shore trails are awesome - perfect for the number of bikers and runners we saw. Loved it!|
|Can you beat this?|
Have you ever been to Pittsburgh - ran Pittsburgh? Favorite city to run?
