A short photo essay of my runs in Hamburg, especially now that it’s Spring:

The first picture is of the hill I run down to get from the street to the path straight on the Elbe. It’s about 1.6 miles to this point where I can look out across the river and see the clock tower, the second image.

Often, I’ll be accompanied by a freight ship on my way down the Elbe (I usually run west, towards the outskirts of Hamburg). The freight ship is sometimes helped by a smaller ship, but when it’s riding free down the river, I’m usually running right alongside, trying to keep up. On a good day, I can.

Finally, I am delighted by the images of spring popping up all around me. The daffodils makes me a little more giddy than other flowers (since I have to think of how I “wander, lonely as a cloud”), but the pink, yellow and white blossoms on the trees, and the blue, red and purple buds on the ground make running right now absolute color fests.
