For those of you who do not know, I love running. I was training and planning to run the NYC Marathon this weekend before Covid hit. Instead of running through the 5 Burroughs of New York City and crossing a finish line in front of the iconic Central Park, I ran throughout Peoria (with help from friends on the route) and finished in the common area/neighborhood park where I live.
It was truly gratifying and beautiful (and yes, tiring) to run 26.2 miles through Peoria.
I would do it again.
