I found a running path along the canal in Notting Hill. It is really fantastic when I can find a path that is so beautiful. It makes the run go by pretty fast. I think running in a new place is the best way to get to know an area. I've learned all the street names and have even come across little cafes and boutiques that are hidden away from the highly trafficked central area of the city. I found someone to run with so that I'm never alone in case I get lost or have an issue with my diabetes. I told her all about my diagnosis, and she was completely understanding. I've realized that people are a lot more understanding than I ever thought they would be- you just have to give them the chance. Anyway, when running gets boring- trying finding a new path! The change up might help to ease the monotony that you may occasionally feel when running long distances.
