What a beautiful view for a run. One of my favorite views in Dallas is the Dallas skyline. This picture was taken during my 2 mile run on the bridge across from Margaret Hunt Bridge. Initially I was there to take photographs of the Dallas skyline.

Our afterwork coffee runs, with wine glasses, lavender tea and leftover briskit crumbs. Our 3am trips to the suspension bridge, full moon, deep talks and cold winds to make us cringe. Early morning breakfast dates, with Jason’s special crepes, hard coffee and empty plates. Last minute Bon fires, with hot dogs, melted ice cream and rescuing your stuck tires. Kayaking in the empty lake, hammock … Continue reading After Work Coffee Runs
