A Run Around SLU

After work today I decided to run around SLU, my alma mater.

It’s pretty hilly. This hill was the death of me at the Go! Half Marathon last year.

It was a gorgeous day.

College Church. I think I’ve only been in here twice and one time wasn’t until after graduation for a couple friends’ wedding.

The Vandeventer/Laclede side of SLU.

A look down Grand avenue and The Fabulous Fox in the distance.

Marchetti Towers, where I lived junior and senior year.

I always thought it was so cool that I could see the Arch while walking to class. Hello Arch!

And the famous SLU Billiken. He’s in front of the new arena they built. After I graduated. Wah wah.

What a difference a couple days makes. It was in the 70s and far less humid than Sunday morning, plus there was a lovely breeze. It’s just so much more enjoyable to run when the weather cooperates.
