Apologies for being absent from DM for the past week - I've been fortunate to have a combo work/vacation trip to Italy, which has been amazing, but also has not left me with much time for posting. Let alone spotty internet and DM posting for me on the Android phone is not straightforward.

Most of this time I've been in a part of Tuscany near Barga which is exceptionally hilly and makes for some pretty challenging terrain. But that comes with some beautiful scenery as nice compensation.Thankfully I managed to get in a couple of 3 mile runs and two decent hikes that were really lovely, if not sweaty.

The run I'm posting here was in Florence, where we're having a little tourist time. It is considerably flatter and nice to run along the Arno River away from the throngs of people. The road along the river leads into a really great quiet park that appeared to be popular with local runners.

Conditions here are a little steamy I suppose, but nowhere near Georgia standards. Back in a couple of days to enjoy that. Although from what I gather, I've missed some spectacularly lousy weather back home. I hope that breaks for everyone and apologies for falling off the DM radar!
