Where I (Used to) Run

Good morning lovelies!

Thank you for all the well wishes for us moving! It was quite the two day affair, complete with illegal pets, broken frames and even a shooting....but more on all that later.

I woke up this morning so sore from all of the heavy lifting, although I didn't go on a run yesterday (and only made 2 last week!) I feel like I got a serious workout in.

During my morning run on Thursday I took some pictures of where I have been running the past year, and I wanted to share them with y'all. I know I promised them yesterday for Photo Friday but...yesterday morning I had no idea where either one of our laptops were!

I started out early and it was still a bit dark, but the sun was right under the horizon. This is the path along the water I used to take every day coming out of my old apartment.

I love the marshes in the Lowcountry!

This is looking back, towards our old building. See the tall brick building on the right? That was us! The City Marina is on the left, and that grey building houses some yacht sales companies, an ABC store and a wine shop and further to the left is Salty Mike's, a casual bar which is frequented by boaters and sailors. Love it!

Further down that path, Lockwood Blvd. turns into the famed Broad Street. Here is a quaint little house I particularly like right on the corner. I love the red door and white picket fence.

This is Colonial Lake. It sits right above Broad Street and there are always runners and walkers there. It's small, so I don't usually run around it. But its a great meet up spot.

The sun is coming up! I love all of the houses around here, it's so beautiful downtown.

Then you get into the larger homes, I believe this one was on South Battery, but it may have been on Tradd St. Either way, it was South of Broad (anything South of Broad Street is v. nice and v. expen$ive).

The gardens downtown are gorgeous, I love peeking through the gates to see how beautiful people keep them. There are actually home and garden tours in the fall where you can visit some of the really impressive private homes and gardens downtown. I would like to look into that this year...and dream of having a home as nice someday!

I love this house! The picture doesn't do it justice, but the large expanse of old glass windows is right up my alley. This one is right across from Battery Park.

I will finish this mini tour later on in Part 2! For now, I leave you with some pictures of what we will be doing today...

Matt is up and itching to get unpacking, so hope you all have a fab Saturday!


  1. Oh I love Charleston! Thanks for posting the pictures. How far from downtown did you move?

  2. Sooooo pretty.

    I'm trying to finish resumes today to apply for jobs in Charleston! Fingers crossed.

  3. Ooh, pretty run! Charleston looks awesome. I hope your move is going well!

  4. Beautiful pics! I love running at sunrise. Don't do it very often, but I wish I did.

  5. I hate moving. Every part of it. I don't envy you right now, having to unpack everything. Good luck. ;)

  6. Glad the moving went well! Your running area looks so beautiful! Hopefully your new running area will be just as nice!

  7. Ahh I've run around Colonial Lake! I have pretty much that SAME picture, too! Crazy!

  8. Purrrrrrty! Can't wait to see pictures from your new 'hood.

  9. omgosh such beautiful pics!!!! i love seeing where people run :)

  10. wow. beautiful pics. that's such a good idea, I might have to bring a camera on one of my easy runs. there are some amazing bridges that are so picturesque.

    btw, you should TOTALLY buy the green tank. Twinsie photos at WWR would be a must. :D Do it. Do it. Do it. haha. (I almost bought the matching shorts, but then realized I would never wear them together, b/c I hate to match when I work out. hah)

  11. More pictures!!! I wanna see the new place! :-)

  12. Great pics, I love our city!
